Snoring can vary greatly from a soft sound to a very loud noise. You will not know that you snore unless you are told by your partner or a member of the family.

If you have obstructive sleep apnoea, you may feel yourself waking up many times a night. You will also feel tired during the day. Your partner or family members may say that they hear you stop breathing for short periods when you are asleep.

Obtrusive sleep apnoea can be a very serious condition. Get advice from your GP if you snore, in case you have the condition.
