Snoring may be a sign of a more serious condition known as obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). It also causes disruption of the natural sleep that makes people feel poorly rested despite adequate time in bed. Apnea patients may experience 30 to 300 such events per night. Regular snorers are 5 times more likely to develop stroke, heart disease and hypertension.
