Try putting pillow over head might help

when you find it, let me know coz my hubby is the same!

He's tried the snoring spray from tesco's approx £7 - bit hit and miss but ok
The clip for your nose and the jaw brace thing (wouldn't use either as he said they irritated him!)
Really it's his weight, when he lost it, he stopped snoring. He's put on another 1.5 stone and he's... back snoring.

Good luck x

stop...rewind...replace Lavendar with wife's head.

My girlfriend snores like an engine with a hole in its exhaust and its 100% torture. I usually have to get up about 3am to sleep in another room, and thats after several hours of her torturous snoring while I'm trying to get to sleep!

Edit : forget the divorce. Hire a hitman, its a more cheaper and smoother process.

There's an operation you can have if it's really bad, ask your Dr.

my OH has tried everything.......I find a sharp jab in the ribs stops him for a few seconds :roll:

The only thing that I have found to solve the "sleepless nights because other half snores" issue is wax ear plugs.

I realise that this is not solving the issue, just covering up the symptom but the end result is still good.

Ear plugs stop the noise alright, its the vibrations that they dont stop that cause the problem its like sleeping next to the midland mainline for me:whistling::whistling::whistling:

There are a number of things you can do. I have however found that the nose strips/sprays are all useless.

Firstly you can try using the foam ear canal earplugs..It does not stop the snoring but it will certainly make it less noisy for you. I do not think this is a long term fix but may help

Secondly she could try a Mandibular Advencement Device. (MAD) These can be purchased off the internet for around £20 and essentially can be moulded in hot water like a gumshield. Has a gap between upper and lower jaw to breathe through. You can get 'proper' ones fitted by a orthodontist but these are around the £200 mark - might want to consult a GP to see if this is for her.

Sometimes snoring is affected by diet. Alcohol certainly does not help so stopping drinking is supposed to be good - never come to terms with that one personally. Also, any dairy products late at night tend to have the effect of drying the mouth out - avoid if possible. There can be other dietary triggers too.

People who are overweight also tend to snore more - sad but true. Basically when the throat relaxes the soft tissue collapses causing an obstruction of the airway - hence snore. Losing weight can therefore help. Again i am still trying that one.

Lastly she could (stress could) potentially be suffering from apnoea - which is an altogether different prospect. Does she appear to 'stop breathing' for any period of more than 10 seconds at a time during the night - then do a really big snore?? is she sleepy during the day or tends to nod off al lot?? If this is a potential problem then you almost certainly want her to see the GP for a more accurate diagnosis. There are treatments for this but I dont recommend them from personal experience. Because of the potentially severe health implications though you should get this checked out .

Sorry for the long answer - but there is not a simple solution. People snore for a variety of reasons and unfortunately is is obviously worse for the 'bed' partner or whoever. It isnt funny though. I have had people on board cruise ships banging on the doors in the early morning cos I was so noisy. :oops:

I really hope you get sorted though..

Second that as something to look at. I have Apnoea and the snoring drove my OH nearly mad. I now have a machine which blows air down my nose (issued by hospital) which sorts it, and it stops the snoring too. Have to be honest though, it's not a perfect solution, and obviously one to be looked at with your GP.

As for losing weight, I certainly need to, but would never tell another bloke his missis needs to shed weight, I like my face the shape it is!:whistling:

thank you rockhound, you are more help than my GP.
i will take up your advice and try some tips you have given.
someone have also mentioned similar product (MAD) from dentist..
thank you once again...

Might just be me - and it's really drastic for a snoring cure.
I used to breath very heavily in my sleep (i think it was my mother being polite for snoring)
I then got my tonsils removed, not for snoring but because they were so large and swollen after countless infections that they were starting to obstruct my airway!

Yeah - by all means try the MAD - you should be able to get an idea if it works by getting one of the 'cheaper' ones to begin with. I would be happy to give you some pointers if you prefer by PM - but i really sympathise with you - and your Mrs !!

I have been diagnosed with apnoea and have CPAP (pressure device mentioned above), a MAD and have tried countless other remedies. I have been trying to sort this for 3 years now - I hope one of the easier options gives you a miracle cure!

Bella - that is what I have (finally) found out I am getting. Tonsilectomy, Ulvulectomy & Pallettoplasty. Not gonna be fun but wiling to do it if I can get rid of the other gear.!!

Correct..proper ones have to be properly made - but are not cheap. You get what you pay for though.

Sorry..dont know about Quidco....lol

Ooohh good luck to you, all at once? what are the other bits? I was only back on the ward for 30mins (maybe less) before they were pushing dinner down my throat! I sobbed and sobbed with my mum spoon feeding a grown woman :oops: she then very kindly told me to shut up as i was embarrassing her!!!
anyway....after the op it is sore but no worse that a really bad infection...and that im glad to say was the end of that!

I bought my hubby a bracelet type thing that gives him a slight electric shock - It really worked, it was brilliant, cheap as well bought in the local chemist, only problem is he keeps hiding it, does not like the shock it gives him.
As soon as he starts to snore it picks it up and sends a very slight shock sensation, not enough to wake him up but enough for him to turn over and top snoring, I thought it realy funny the firt morning, I had had such a lovely sleep - I thought his wrist was going to be covered in red marks from the shocks

Ulvula - Big dangly thing.....(at the back of your throat lol :p)
Pallette - Flap of skin between back of throat and nose.

Apparently it is these that have a lot of nerve endings and are the sore bit...:-(

Onwards and upwards though...:thumbsup:
[helper]#31
I read some where that singing exercises could help - apparently this stops the pallet being "flappy"........

Of course her singing could be worse than her snoring :whistling:
