I have heard something that if you snore you could have something wrong with your heart! Is that true?
My dad snores and I have heard something that if you snore you could have something wrong with your heart. I am worried about him. Does anyone know if this is true? If yes what are the other side effects?

I've snored loudly for 30 years and I'm still around. Lots or even most people who snore are sually over weight which yes, can lead to heart disease.

there's nothing wrong with the heart.. when you snore you experience shortness of breath & apnea (cessation of breathing)&/or airway obstruction & that breathing problem can cause cardiac arrythmias that's why doctor's discourage valsalva maneuver bec.you need to hold your breath when defecating (straining)
