Our expert says:
There are many possible causes for snoring, from trivial to serious, and many degrees of snoring, from cute purriong to cement mixer to pneumatic drill. Most people snore much more easily if sleeping on their back, so an old folk remedy was to sew something like a cotton reel or something else small and hard into the center of the back of your pyjama tops or T-shirt or whatever, so it pokes you in the back uncomfortably when you roll onto your back, such that you roll back onto your side - your silent side.
Ask him if he has noticed not only the loud snorin, but whether there are times when you not only stop snoring, but actually stop breathing for a short time, before resuming noisily. If so, this could be Sleep Apnoea, and might deserve expert assessment and treatment.
