Snoring can cause a sore or dry throat, especially in the morning. This is often due to sleeping with your mouth open causing the throat to dry out and become scratchy or sore.
Snoring at night can disrupt the quality of sleep causing you to feel tired during the day.
Being overtired can also put you more at risk of snoring so we recommend following a sleep routine and making sure your sleep environment is the best it can be to help reduce the risk of snoring.
Snoring can cause suffers to wake up with a headache. This is more common in those who have sleep apnoea.
Neck pain is not a common side effect from snoring. Waking up with neck pain may be more down to your sleeping position, mattress or pillow.
Sleep apnoea however can cause headache and pinched nerve neck pain

Snoring surgery is suitable for anyone experiencing significant disruption from sleep as a result of their snoring.
However, we recommend that patients should only have snoring surgery after other non-invasive treatments have been tried in order to improve the condition.
There are many simple lifestyle changes that can help stop or reduce snoring including;
Using breathing devices that you wear in your mouth while asleep
Changing your sleep pattern
Sleeping on your side, or using a special pillow to keep you on your side
Patients who have been diagnosed with sleep apnoea may need to consider snoring surgery, sooner rather than later, to prevent long-term effects on your health and lifestyle.
