Sign of: sleep apnea, cardiovascular problems

If you’re just snoring occasionally (or while you have a cold), that’s totally normal. But more consistent, frequent bouts of snoring may be a sign of issues to come.

This can lead to a lack of oxygen to the brain over time, putting major strain on your heart that can lead to high blood pressure and disease.
