Snoring help needed!

Answered 2 years ago

My snoring is keeping my husband awake at night. He says that I snore most of the night and he can’t sleep. I always breath through my nose, and am a loud breather at night, however I apparently also snore. I am wondering if my snoring could be caused by nasal or sinus irritation or blockage? Has anyone else been in a similar situation? By the way, I will also be asking my doctor next time I go. I’m just wanting to hear the experiences of others.

How is your weight? Ive recently lost about 20kg, putting me back in the healthy BMI zone and my snoring has stopped.

Yes, Saxenda, prescribed from doctor, i used it to lose the first 10kg then have done the rest by myself. Losing the first 10kg on Saxenda created all these new healthy habits for me, which are just an easy normal way of life for me now. It is expensive, $385 for 5 weeks worth of doses, but i have extras health insurance and it basically covered the whole amount, doctor also gave me about 4 weeks sample, free trial (your doc might have these too), for me i lost about 3-5kg per script. Good luck, im back to my old self on it and couldnt be happier. (Oh and it is not like Duramine at all) it's an injection in your stomach everyday, but it is tiny and you cant feel it all.

Hmmm i thought there were no quick fixes to weight loss? So they've been lying to us all these years? Rude

You could also see an orofacial myologyst. If you’re mouth breathing they’ll refrain you to nose breath and hold your jaw closed. Mouth breathing is the cause of heeeeeapps of problems. It’s really interesting.

Op here. Thanks for that, however I already only ever breath through my nose. Do you think they might still be able to help me anyway?

Do you ever think that sometimes people correct THEIR OWN mistakes? I do that. Leave her alone and stick to the topic.

My husband was snoring really bad for a long time. He’s not overweight but he lost 5 kgs and then bought one of those latex pillows that offer more support. He’s stopped snoring now, thank god. I was about to move into another bedroom.

Op here. Thank you for your response! I have been thinking whether my weight could be the cause of my snoring. I weigh 75kg, my height is 165cm. This weight is quite heavy for me. Maybe weight loss is the answer! May I ask how you lost your weight?

Your not far off your ideal weight, did you snore when you weighed less?

Op here. I don’t think I snored when I weighed less. I think my snoring has only started in the last few years. My husband has complained about it on and off, however it seems to be more of an issue at the moment as he is a bit stressed and not sleeping well.

Get checked for sleep apnea. My husband had a really bad case. Get it checked because it can kill you if you let it go.

ANSWER

Yes it could any of those things. It could also be sleep apnea or a weight issue. Have you tried different positions? How do you think you and hubby would go sleeping in separate bedrooms? I'm a snorer too (as is hubby) but he falls asleep within seconds. I'm not even kidding. If I go to bed and fall asleep before him we're all good but if he falls asleep first, then I can't nod off with his snoring. If all else fails you may need to contact your GP or a sleep clinic Good luck babe x

Op here. Thanks for your answer. It could be a weight issue. Maybe I should work on that, as I don’t want to get to the point of having to sleep in separate bedrooms.
