How does a person who did not use to snore, start snoring from one day to the next? Why does this happen? Age? Sleep position? Not breathing right?

What is the best stop snoring home remedy?
I have had problems my whole life with snoring, and was wondering if anyone had suggestions for the best stop snoring home remedy. It's really been bothering me recently, and I want it to stop already! Any help would be appreciated.
You really should see your doctor and be tested for sleep apnea or nasal or throat polyps, or sinus troubles.
Some things to try at home:
1. the nasal strips (Breathe Right is a brand name). Those can help with snoring and for nasal congestion.
2. Don't sleep on your back. My husband snores, but i've noticed it doesn't happen if he is sleeping on his side. Prop with pillows to keep yourself from rolling onto your back.
3. Raise the head of your bed up on blocks.
4. Lose weight. If you have a thick neck, that will partially block your airway and cause snoring.
5. Get more rest. My hubby tends to snore when he is more tired than usual.
6. Make sure you are drinking plenty of fluids. At night mucous membranes dry out and could lead to snoring.
And again, see your doctor to be checked. (+ info
How can you reduce snoring in your sleep?
My brother is sleeping right now and is snoring louder than a donkey. Recently he's been asking me if he snores too loud, and I wonder if I snore as well. What causes snoring and how can you prevent it?
When you fall asleep the muscles in your mouth and throat relax. This causes snoring in some people when the muscles as the air passing through your nose cause the tissue in your nose and throat to vibrate.
Try sleeping on your side or stomach to get rid of the snoring. Sleeping on your back is usually the worst position for people who snore. If you still have a problem, you can try a "Breathe Right" strip over your nose, throat spray, a snore pillow, etc. Google those snoring remedies for more info if you can't get rid of snoring.

How should I deal with a snoring problem?
This summer I'm going to this summer camp where I'll live for 3 weeks.
Everyone will share one room with a roomate.
Last year (I went to the same camp) my roomate was really nice, but she did mention that I snore and it kind of kept her awake the first night at camp.
This year,how should I handle my snoring problem? Should I just tell my new roomate right off the bat that I snore? And what do I do if it keeps her awake at night?
First of all rule out any medical problem like a deviated nasal septum,any other obstruction in the nose like growth of nasal polyps or an obstruction in the throat while sleeping.
Here are a few tips which can help you to get rid of this habit permanently.
1. LOOSE WEIGHT.20% of over weight men and 30% of over weight women snore more.
2. If you are not active in life,you will snore more.
3. DO NOT DRINK ALCOHOL before dinner.If you do,then to avoid snoring,drink a lot of water before you sleep.
4. QUIT SMOKING.If you can't,then give a break of at least 4 hours before you sleep.
5. SLEEP ON YOUR SIDE and not straight.If you are a moderate snorer,it will stop if you sleep on your side.
6. AVOID PILLOWS.Avoid elevation of your head and neck and you will snore less or stop snoring. (+ info
What is a god way for my parents to stop snoring?
They just recently got back together and they are 60 years old. They both snore so bad that they keep each other awake at night. They've had to resort to sleeping in separate rooms, it's so bad. What can they try to maybe not snore, or not snore so intensely? They snore in all positions so rolling each other over does not work. Does anyone know if those pillows that are supposed to stop snoring actually work? Does anyone know what they can try?
They need to lose some weight and get on a good nutritional program that will make them healthy. Snoring is one sign of bad health. Some people have sleep apneas that can be life threatening and others have loose tissue that "flaps in the wind" and rattles when they relax while sleeping.
What most people find is that when they lose weight and improve their diet so they are getting good nutrients in their bodies, the snoring goes away or is greatly reduced.
good luck to you (+ info
What is the best way to stop snoring at night when sleeping?
Tell me the best 3 way to stop snoring at night when sleeping?
* Sleep on your side. Prop an extra pillow behind your back so you won't roll over. Try sleeping on a narrow sofa for a few nights to get accustomed to staying on your side.
* Sew a large marble or tennis ball into a pocket on the back of your pajamas. The discomfort it causes will remind you to sleep on your side.
* If you must sleep on your back, raise the head of the bed by putting bricks or blocks between the mattress and box springs. Or buy a wedge especially made to be placed between the mattress and box spring to elevate the head section. Elevating the head prevents the tongue from falling against the back of the throat.
* If you are heavy, lose weight. Excess fatty tissue in the throat can cause snoring.
* Don't drink alcohol or eat a heavy meal within 3 hours before bedtime. For some reason, both seem to foster snoring.
* If necessary, take an antihistamine or decongestant before retiring to relieve nasal congestion (which can also contribute to snoring). [Note: Older men should check with their doctor before taking decongestants. Decongestants that have ephendrine can give older men urinary problems.]
* Get rid of allergens in the bedroom such as dust, down filled (feathered) pillows and bed linen (this may also relieve nasal congestion).
* Try over-the-counter "nasal strips". These keep the nostrils open and lift them up, keeping nasal passages unobstructed. (+ info

What is the solution for stopping snoring ?
I've been hearing a lot about the mouth piece which moves your lower jaw foward & the sea salt. I don't think my snoring is serious enough to see a doctor. Can someone tell me if they have experience with any of these snoring solutions.
Adjust your sleeping posture
Try sleeping on your side or stomach or raise the head of your bed four to six inches.
Avoid alcoholic beverages
Particularly prior to bedtime.
Avoid medication that relaxes the muscles
This includes sleeping pills, tranquilizers, antihistamines, etc.
Ask your loved one for assistance
If you sleep with someone, ask him or her to wake you or roll you over if you snore.
Gargle with salt water and/or use a decongestant to help rid yourself of congestion. Be sure to remove any possible allergens from your bedroom as well: dust, feather pillows, etc.
Not only will it improve your overall physical condition, it will help you lose weight.
Keep your nostrils open
Try using nasal strips and/or nasal dilators to help keep nostrils open and avoid nasal blockage
If you are overweight, try losing a few pounds.
Singing helps tone the flabby muscles of our upper airways. Belting out a few songs every day for approximately 20 minutes seems to do the trick for some.
Establish regular sleep patterns and get adequate sleep
Stop eating before bed
Don't eat heavy meals within three hours of bedtime.
Smoking weakens and clogs the throat.
Talk to your dentist
Ask about anti-snoring dental appliances.
Talk to your doctor
If your snoring becomes worse, ask your doctor about the possibility of using a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure machine) to help keep breathing passages open. If that fails, it may be time to consider one of the many surgical procedures available to control snoring
oh, and may I ask.. do you have asthama??? cause a lot of people that gave asthma has bigger snoring problems~
but whether you have asthma or not, you have to make sure the air is clean from pollen, smoke etc. If you have a pet I advise you to buy a air purifier to clean up the air in your room to make you lungs free from dust and bacteria.
Air conditioner can also be a reason why you snore, cause it can make your lung tighten up, so if you have a air conditioner make sure you don't always use it~
also make sure your bed lining and pillow covers are cleaned AT LEAST once a week!!!
I really do advise you to see a docter serious or not, because snoring can get worse and snoring, if not treated properly will raise the chance for you to get lotsa diseases~. (+ info
