    Default Re: Husband's snoring

    Yeah think I may have to look into one of these mouth guards just convincing dh to try it, may have to try and work it so he thinks it is his idea his dad has sleep apnea so do get worried about that. He doesn't drink a lot and while he could maybe lose 1 -2 kg it's not like he is obese or anything.

    Is sleep apnea dangerous? My husband may have it he snores but the other thing he will do is hold his breath in his sleep. He always takes a breath eventually

    If you can convince him to try something then that's a good thing. I think!!

    Someone else mentioned a sleep study-always a good idea. My DH did one at snore Australia and I have to say not the best at all. He got there at 9:00ish and hooked him up etc. then basically said go to sleep. At 9:00pm - crazy if your bedtime is more like 10:30. Then after trying for hours to fall asleep they woke him at 4:00 ish and said you're fine go home!
    I thought he had sleep apnea etc but according that sleep study no. He did go to an ENT and he does need an operation on his nose but apart from that he's fine. And his weight doesn't seem to make a difference.
    He tried nasal sprays, strips on his nose, homeopathic stuff, but the rip snore mouth guard is the only thing that does the trick!!! But it does take a bit to get used to.
    Good luck!!

    This is the bane of my life every.single.night, it drives me batty as I am a light sleeper and the snoring from my husband is always keeping me awake.

    I have tried the usual, ear plugs, giving him a prod, kick, push, roll over and they are only a fix for a few minutes (if I'm lucky), however a friend suggested (and this will sound kooky) to make a sound like the clicking sort of a sound you make to get a horse come to you! As I said, it sounds kooky, but apparently she was told that from a specialist to stop the snorer in their tracks when they hear this sound despite being asleep. Unfortunately she couldn't remember the exact scietific reason it is supposed to work, but I am willing to give anything a go, even if it means to sound like a Horse whisperer in bed at night!

    Do you mean a chck-chck sort of sound out of the corner of your mouth? Or do I call horses in a strange way?

    Yes, that chck-chck sound from the corner of your mouth, you have described it perfectly, as it's not really an easy noise to describe in words.
