    did you get used to your partners snoring or did you find solutions
    i notice there are various solutions that i've read about
    strips to put on nose, lose weight, dont drink alchohol, use saline spray or neti pot or vaporiser or take a shower to take away congestion before sleeping etc etc etc raise the bed head, have an operation ( all operations are risky so this bothers me ) sleep in another room, keep rolling them on their side

    did you try anything and did anything help or did you just get used to it?

    I have just gotten used to it. I used to sleep with the TV on, then he moved in and I adjusted to his snoring as my white noise to the point that I now can’t sleep without his snoring he worked overseas for 2 months last year and I was exhausted cause I couldn’t sleep!!

    The only time it bothers me is when he’s super tired, and he sleeps in the wrong position and it gets so loud and snorty. I usually wake him and he shifts position and it quiets a bit.

    He’s tried cpap and it helped, but he found the mask claustrophobic. He also had surgery last year which widened his nasal passage and removed something and that has helped, it’s nowhere near as deafening.

    Nope, never will be used to it, so on and off he sleeps in the spare room as between him snoring and my insomnia/light sleeping, that’s the best solution for us!

    We sleep in different rooms. I like having my own space anyway. I only have to fight my cat for room in the bed now

    DH snores quite loudly, but as XH's snoring was so bad I'm only bothered by it if I'm suffering insomnia for other reasons (such as pregnancy). If he stays at someone else's place they ask me how I put up with it, lol!

    XH had had his adenoids removed and cut out dairy from his diet. I had 100% permission to poke him if he was snoring badly so he could move (he hated it as he would wake with a sore throat). His snoring was so bad the bed would actually shake with each exhalation. We're no longer in contact but I imagine he would have looked into more solutions as it really bothered him.

    I snore/gag when I lay on my back when pregnant or overweight. So for me, losing weight helps. XH and DH were/are slim, so weight is not a factor for all.

    Oh my gosh. Hubby’s snoring does my head in. We’ve muddled through over the last 12 years with him waking me up and me poking him to turn onto his stomach. It’s ongoing!
    I did order some random thing that was meant to go in his nose from the internet but it never arrived. Pretty keen to hear if any of these gadgets actually work.

    Thank you
    Someone I know tried the strips on the nose and said they r not comfy
    The other ones for in the nose seem worse
    Surgery is meant to help unsure how much
    I read NOT to use things that hold the mouth closed as u need to b able to breathe thru nose or mouth
    Allergy diets that might reduce congestion might help
    Losing weight helps some
    I don’t know about the wrist bands
    Sleeping on side meant to help
    I’m hoping someone has more positive experience

    Well I had surgery for my deviated septum and I know that I still snore! Hubby won’t get it done anyways. He’s not overweight.
    He only doesn’t snore on his tummy which he finds uncomfortable

    I’ll be looking into nose things soon I reckon.
