Snoring is a common condition and loud and frequent snoring may be more than just a nuisance; it may be the sign of a sleep condition known as sleep apnea. If a member of your family or household tells you that you snore loudly and seem to gasp for air while you sleep, talk to your primary care physician. He or she may recommend a sleep study at one of the Riverside Centers for Sleep Medicine to determine if there is an underlying cause of your snoring.
Children and young adults can also be affected by sleep issues:
Hypersomnia is characterized by recurrent episodes of excessive daytime sleepiness or prolonged nighttime sleep.
