Q. Why do some people snore?
Ans. Actually, our neck muscles relax during sleep. But sometimes, like after consuming alcohol, taking certain medications, etc., the muscles relax to an extent that the upper airway in the throat partly closes. Thus the passage of air through the nose and throat gets obstructed which causes the surrounding tissues to vibrate and make the unpleasant sound which we call ‘snoring’.
