Snoring occurs when air does not flow smoothly through the air passages, or when the soft tissues or muscles in your air passages vibrate. As you fall into a deep sleep, the muscles in your tongue, throat and roof of your mouth (soft palate) relax. This muscle relaxation causes your throat tissues to sag. As you breathe, the sagging tissues narrow your airway and vibrate or flutter, creating the sound of snoring. The narrower your airway becomes, the greater the vibration...and the louder your snoring.
Age can be a factor with snoring problem's, The older you get, the weaker your throat muscles become. Weak throat muscles cause the surrounding tissues to sag and vibrate.
Like the new avatar. I share a house with an old mate from army days during the week and his snoring is loud enough to wake me from my snoring, redcoat greenjacket can tell tales of his legendary snoring. The accom at the regy reunion will be like an engine room on a cross channel ferry!
