Everyone tells me I snore

Loud, frequent snoring can definitely be a nighttime annoyance, but it could also be a serious health issue. According to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, one percent of kids who snore suffer from sleep and breathing problems. If you struggle to breathe while snoring, you might have Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome (OSAS). If this is the case, see your doctor ASAP. Otherwise, Dr. Martin McVeigh of Atlanta says to restore peace and quiet by making some simple changes—sleep on your side instead of your back, or use a humidifier. Surgery might also help by removing tonsils and adenoids that prevent proper breathing.
