When to See a Doctor About Snoring

If you or someone close to you is not sleeping well because of snoring, a visit to the doctor may be helpful. A doctor's visit may be particularly important if you are:

  • Falling asleep during normal waking hours
  • Becoming irritable
  • Losing concentration
  • Becoming depressed
  • Not feeling rested in the morning
  • Awaken with a headache in the morning
  • Told you seem to stop breathing during sleep

When you call to make an appointment, let them know that you want to talk to the doctor about your snoring problem so that they can schedule the correct amount of time for the evaluation.
