What should you expect when seeing a doctor about snoring?

ANSWER

The doctor will ask about your symptoms and medical history. She'll also give you a physical exam.

She may suggest you see an ear, nose, and throat specialist called an otolaryngologist. They're better equipped to examine your nasal passages for any blockages.

Your doctor may also refer you to a sleep lab, where researchers can figure out if a problem like sleep apnea is making you snore a lot.
