At SHC we often talk about snoring in the context of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) or upper airway resistance syndrome (UARS), but allergies can also commonly lead to snoring. After all, the mucous membranes are swollen or inflamed as they do their work battling histamine responses and filtering external pollutants and allergens. When you have a swollen upper airway, and your nasal passages are congested, you naturally have an increased chance of snoring while you sleep.
