Have you been told that you snore a lot? If so, you should probably start to think a big deeper about whether or not you have a deviated nasal septum.
A bit of snoring is normal, but if it gets to be disruptive to those around you and they complain about it on a consistent basis, then something should be done.
So what is a deviated nasal septum and how could it make you snore a lot?
A deviated septum occurs when the cartilage between your nostrils (that is your septum) is shifted one way or another, which causes an obstruction in your breathing. When this obstruction happens, snoring can be caused, among other things
Some things to consider: Deviated septums occur naturally, but if your snoring hasn’t always been a problem than the cause of it could have been an injury. Nose injuries are a huge cause for septum displacement. If you have had any injury to your nose lately, that could warrant a visit to the doctor.
Visits to the doctor regarding a septum problem are very common, and not complicated. If it is determined that you do indeed have a deviated septum, that could be the cause of your excess snoring and moves can be made to ensure that you reduce your snoring.
