    snoring by itself doesn't meanyou have sleep apnea, you need to have a sleep study done for a positive diagnosis. Sleep apnea means you stop breathing while your asleep, loud snoring is just one of the symptoms.

    +1 on that. Helps if you have a significant other to notice the stopped breathing part. They do sell inexpensive pulse-ox monitors/data loggers that you can use if you suspect it but don't feel like doing an actual sleep study. If you get an oxygen level below 80%, go get a sleep study done sooner than later.

    Breath Right Strips and spray work really well the strips open your nasal passages and the spray keeps your throat moist. You can also try using a contour pillow to support your neck in a tilted position so your mouth remains closed and your made to breath through your nose. I have used both and they work really well. My husband had some success with https://www.weelinks.info/u/stop-snoring/ not a guaranteed cure but did seem to help
