Hi, thanks for your query. Snoring
is a difficult symptoms to diagnose and treat. It occurs when air passes through a narrow passage from nose to lungs. Any pathology from the nose like deviated septum
, polyp, tumour, naso
pharyngeal pathology like tumour, pharyngeal pathology like huge tonsils, huge tongue, small mentum etc. Can cause it.
Therefore routine ENT examination should be done first. Investigation advised is dynamic MRI to detect the site of obstruction. Sleep study
would help us detect the apnea hyperapnea index. Treatment aspect may be surgical correction of the obstructive pathology or non surgical treatment with C APP machine. All details, clinical examination, investigation, treatment needs medical assistance. Hope my answers have helped you. Thanks.
