Hi, Snoring means breathing from mouth! You must be having nose blocks and hence you are breathing from the mouth. Breathing from mouth causes the uvula and tongue to vibrate and snoring! Please ask someone at home to observe your sleep and if possible record it. There can be a condition called Sleep apnea where you will be trying to breath but due to nose blocks and fall of tongue behind you will not be able to breathe at all and suddenly you wake up from sleep for a second and again fall asleep and start snoring! Such sleep is not good for you.
