    You could have sleep apnea. You may want to have yourself checked out at a sleep clinic. Sleep apnea can be controlled using a machine that you must sleep with to ensure you breath throughout the night.

    Another issue could be weight. I used to snore until last year when I dropped 16 lbs. The snoring magically went away much to my partner's delight.

    Even people who don't snore routinely can snore in certain unaccustomed sleeping positions. For example, I am a very quiet sleeper when I am in my usual position, which is on my side. But, if for some reason, I am on my back, I can occasionally snore.

    As someone pointed out, I think it's important, both from the standpoint of your own health and from that of a possible bed partner, that you find out if you are just an occasional snorer, or you have apnea.

    Apnea is a health issue. People with apnea are actually stopping to breath, briefly. They snort for air, and wake themselves up. This is not necessarily related to weight.

    A very close friend of mine has it. He's a personal trainer and has pretty close to a perfect body. When we're together, I can't sleep with him. It's so bad that you can hear him from the second bedroom one room and a hallway distant. Ear plugs don't help. Hence, when we've been together, that part of intimacy involving sleeping together can't occur. I simply can't sleep.

    I've told him that apnea is associated with enhanced risk for stroke. It's really an issue he needs to address, and not easily dismissed by just claiming it's snoring.

    Anyway, I guess my first advice is to find out if you are really snoring, or have sleep apnea. If it's the latter, it's more than just an annoyance to you and other people. It's a possible health issue.

    My ex would snore all the time. I'd just wake him up and be like.. "you're snoring again baby. Please shut up."

    My only saving grace would be to fall sleep before him, so that when he started snoring, I was too far gone to be bothered.

    Don't sleep? Sleep in another room?

    If they don't seem like possible solutions, then there's always nose strips things that worked for my father.

    Otherwise snoring could be due to weight or position, so try changing those.

    My mom SWEARS by the Breathe Right Nasal Strips that you can pick up at the pharmacy. Maybe pick up a box and give them a shot?

    Hmmm... yes that would be most unpleasant, McGay. icon_lol.gif

    I hope I don't snore. I have heard from others that it really isn't a snore but more like loud breathing..... errr... which is snoring. icon_confused.gif

    Well, at least I am not as loud as my parents. Rips the fabric of space-time! I knew sewing would come in handy!

    I've had two procedures to remedy my sleep apnea with moderate success.

    1. My uvula and soft palate were lasered.

    2. My deviated septum was corrected.

    I don't have symptoms of sleep apnea and snore on occasion but not regularly. Helpful procedures but not cures, in my case.

    When my hubby snores loud enough to wake me, I snuggle up and hug him, which makes him stop. When I snore, he hits me in the head.

    We're in our first year together and still working out the protocols on this... LOL!!!

    I don't know if I snore, my dog doesn't tell me. But my sinuses used to close up on me and I couldn't breath well. Then I started using Breathe Right strips. Ever since then, I breath better laying down, I sleep much more fitfully, and I hardly ever wake up with a scratchy throat (from what I assume is from snoring). They work for me.

    You should go to a doctor if you think you have sleep apnea. Most people have it because they are too heavy, but I had it due to freakishly enlarged tonsills. I had my tonsills and adenoids removed and a deviated septum repaired last January and it has made a HUGE difference....
