4. Sinus Issues
Snoring may signal temporary sinus issues — a sinus infection can cause your nasal airway to swell, while allergies can cause nasal congestion — or more serious, long-term issues. A deviated septum, which occurs when the thin wall between your nostrils is displaced to one side, can obstruct airflow on one side of your nose and requires surgery in order to be properly fixed.
