One of the most common causes of snoring is an obstructed airway. As you fall asleep, the muscles in your airway relax, including the muscles in your throat. Your tongue can also roll back, and large tonsils may also be a factor. Any of these things can contribute to a snoring problems and a less-than peaceful night.
