HuffingtonPostLong considered little more than a nuisance, snoring is no longer something to ignore—to the delight of frustrated bed partners everywhere. To sleep physicians, snoring is a sign that something’s up.

“When you are snoring, you’re spending too much energy to breathe,” says Dr. M. Safwan Badr, M.D., president of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. “Snoring is like fever for a general internist—it tells you something is going on, but it doesn’t tell you what.”

Snoring occurs when a person’s airways have narrowed, causing the air that passes through it as we breathe to vibrate the soft tissue of the throat. “In principle, snoring is not normal,” he says. As a physician, he says he would want to know why that person is snoring in order to provide the best treatment, rather than have a snorer attempt to take her medical care into her own hands. “I would make sure that the body isn’t telling us to look for sleep-disordered breathing or sleep apnea,” he says.
