  • How can I stop snoring?

    My wife can't sleep because of this and it is affecting her energy level during the day, also she gets really mad at me. I don't want to sleep in seperate rooms. Turning over doesn't help. I'm 6'4'', 270 pounds, with no major health problems, except for I have allergies and tend to have a snuffy nose.

    Hi Brad. Does it affect your energy levels at all? If so, you may well be suffering from OSA.

    If you snore, AND have apnea's (moments of a few seconds where you stop breathing) you are at risk of not providing your brain with enough oxygen. That's on top us just waking up many times making you feel lethargic throghout the day, like your wife. Not enough oxygen could mean brain damage or ultimately death. Sounds scary huh?

    There are many ways to stop snoring. Loosing wieght (around the nck) is one. Excess body tissue in that area contributes to the collapsing airways which causing the snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.

    If your sinusses are blocked constantly you could look into nasal irrigation with something like a netipot, like on Oprah recently. There are many types of nasal sprays that can help you with that part of the problem.

    Other options include anti-snoring strips (probably won't help if you carry too much weight and are clogged up), dental devices and surgery.

    Above all, I would go check in with a doctor and ask about sleep apnea.
    If you can read this...
    ...at least you seem to be getting enough sleep to stay awake and alert!

      I think yo are spot on, MoutheBreather.

      If in doubt, sus it out. A sleep physician is the only one who can tell these things for sure.

          Hi snoweping

          Those posts are four years old and thus do not include many recent innovations.

          Do you suffer any symptoms other than snoring? Lack of energy? Permanent tiredness? Grumpiness?

                  The following tips will hopefully teach you how to stop snoring.
                  Elevate your head by sleeping on a thicker pillow or multiple pillows will help reduce your snoring.

                  Don't drink alcoholic beverages, take sleeping pills, tranquilizers, or antihistamines right before going to sleep; they will cause your muscles to relax and limit your air passage way.

                  Avoid dairy products, which can cause mucus build-up right before you go to sleep.
                  there can be other reasons as well but i know just a few so try and it might help..!

                    Just what are "multiple pillows"? Do they look the same as several pillows or do we have to "pre-order" them at the multiple pillows shop?

                      Hi Brad,
                      Sleep on your side as you are more likely to snore if you lye on your back. Do workout daily to lose excess body weight. Get your allergies treated, using mouth guard might help you in treating snoring. Avoid alcohol, smoking and tranquilizers and avoid eating shortly before going to bed.
