    Default Snoring Problem

    Do any of you have suggestions to help with snoring, (other than retiring to separate rooms)? I keep my boyfriend up at night with my snoring. I have talked to my Dr. about this, but he said there isn't much they can do about it. Is that true? Is surgery very successful, or are their other ways to solve this problem?

    Try propping yourself up. Personally I would see another doctor, but that's just me. lol Snoring can be the sign of something else going on. He should have, you didn't say if he had, done some sort of testing to make sure that nothing detrimental is going on. It can be a sign of sleep apnea. I'm sure others will come along to give you more advice, but these are my .02. *grin*

    This really seems to be a big problem because I have seen many posts about it. Usually the doctor will send you to a sleep clinic to check for sleep apnea. My doctors have wanted
    me to do it since the beginning. At first I couldn't afford it and ow I have no insurance.

    You might want to talk to your doctor about that because it seems to come up often

    I had sleep studies done a few years ago and I was told that I don't have sleep apnea. I guess I can rule that out.

    My hubby had the sleep study and tried a CPAP machine. We both hated that thing! He sleeps with his mouth open, so he would break the seal on it, which would make it keep forcing more air into the tube until it woke both of us up when he would be choking and gagging. Also, pieces kept breaking on the thing, and the medical supply company went crazy with sending all kinds of new parts for it, and charging us a huge amount of money for them. I took me a while to pay them off.

    We finally came to the agreement that Jeff should just learn to sleep on his side, rather than always sleeping on his back. He has been snoring less that way. When he does get onto his back and starts snoring, I prod him until he moves to his side.

    LOL - He's snoring in his recliner right now! His cat is snoring in his lap, too.

    I snore very, very loudly. So much that sometimes I wake myself up. My hubby wears earplugs. Swears it helps.

    I did the same thing last night. I woke myself up at least three or four times. What kind of earplugs did your husband have?

    I wonder if our debilitating fatigue and many disease-related sleep disturbances contribute to our snoring. I agree, this seems to be a common problem amongst many of us and I can't help wondering if it is, somehow, connected to our disease?
    My husband nudges me until I sleep on my side also. I have also found that sleeping in an almost seated position reduces the amount that I snore..so I have a very large, very soft bed pillow that I prop up on. Seems to help me.

    Peace and Blessings
