Snoring

My partner snores loudly enough that it wakes me up while wearing earplugs. I often have to sleep in a separate room, and last night it was loud enough to wake me up in the next room with the door shut! His dad also snores loud enough that his parents sleep in separate rooms.

Is there anything that he can do to stop snoring? I don't want to spend the rest of my life exhausted from not being able to get more than an hour of sleep undisturbed!

How does he sleep? My fiance snores when he lies on his back, so i make him sleep on his side and no snoring.

I really feel for you cos that would be enough to drive me potty! It's like chinese water torture for me. I'm always waiting for the next snore and i can't ignore it.

He starts sleeping on his side but moves around to end up on his back. I usually hit him and make him turn over, but that involves me waking up, which is pretty unacceptable to happen multiple times per night!

I have read about wearing a t-shirt to bed with a tennis ball on the back, but he thinks that is mean and that I want to hurt him by making him wear that!

Imhotep - new-ish boyfriend, yes, since September.

Tell him to sleep on his stomach then. I love how it is cruel to put a golf ball on his back but it is not cruel to have to endure his snore-a-thon.

Exact same thing with my boyfriend. Except I feel super guilty waking him up because of his seizures (he really needs the sleep he can get). So I usually can't sleep much. Plus I freaking HATE snoring noise. If it was something more regular I'd be fine.

Anybody know of anything else?

I have the same issue, though it's not constant...it happens during allergy season at random and whenever he is getting sick. The snoring gets loud when he is on his back and I have to wake him up (which totally wakes ME up) to get him to stop.
IDK what to say, it's annoying as hell! It's only once a week at its worst though, I think I would go nuts if it happened every night.
Earplugs + Ambien seem to help, but that's not an every night solution.

the generic name is zolipidem (i think)...it's the only sleep aid that helps me fall/stay asleep and doesn't make me groggy in the morning. it's awesome, but supposedly habit-forming so you aren't supposed to use it every night on an ongoing basis (though many people do)

Is is a prescription drug? I think I have something of the like that the doctor gave me for headaches - and it's not habit-forming so that's good.

My brother used to snore...a lot...to the point that my sis-in-law was sleeping on the couch every night. He just bought a Pure Sleep though and she said he rarely snores at all now. Might be worth a shot?

He wears a custom mouthguard (top only) designed to stop his teeth-grinding from wearing down his teeth (his from teeth are caps and his parents paid a fortune). I can ask him to bring it up to his dentist when he goes back, but his dentist is in Geneva and he's not going until July.

I really don't want to have to take drugs to sleep in the bed with him. I have my own bedroom in our house but when we move we might not be able to afford that! And sometimes, like last night, he's still loud enough to wake me up. Ugh.

It is just such an obnoxious noise!

Does he snore regardless of sleep position? Have you ever noticed him stop breathing at night? My hubby snores like mad in most positions, and early last year I finally got him to go do a sleep study b/c I think he has sleep apnea. The study came back normal, but he said that he didn't sleep well, or much at all, due to the various wires stuck to him, so it's likely he never got into a deep sleep. So I'm just stuck dealing with it for now "Luckily", I only have to deal with it until I fall asleep, as it's not bad enough to wake me once I'm out, but there have been many nights where I've stayed awake just listening to him snore, occasionally elbowing/kneeing him to try to get him to stop

Thank god my hubby doesn't snore.

My dad does a lot, and his is due to allergies and sleep apnea. They tried all sorts of things, but it only made his sleep horrible so they gave up. I grew up hearing him every single night, and when he and my mom come visit, I remember all the noise again.

He doesn't snore when he's on his side, but he rolls onto his back, which wakes me up and I have to hit him, so that isn't a solution that lets me sleep through the night.

I showed him those mouth pieces and he thought they looked terrible, but he agreed to try a new pillow, and I think it might be better if we move and buy a king sized bed so he can sort of sprawl while on his side (he's very tall). If anyone has any other ideas, keep them coming.

Thanks everyone. It's good to know I'm not alone here!

is he a heavier set guy? A friend of mine lost weight and the snoring went away with the pounds.

^^^ Not really. He's one of those tall lanky guys with a bit of a belly but he's definitely not fat, and his dad (who snores the same way) is also tall and skinny in his 60s.

My brother-in-law snored really BAD - he tried everything out there - even a breathing machine - he then worked with a dentist - I can find out exactly what he has now - it's not a mouthguard - it has worked wonders - so, wondering if you've consulted with a dentist - I'd also contact a sleep clinic and see what they would recommend. If you'd like me to contact my sister for what he has, I can.

What rating do your earplugs have? I used to have a really hard time falling asleep b/c of a train blaring nearby and the 33 rating blocks all of the noise, while with the 31 I could still hear it. Also blocks my bf's snoring, though he isn't super loud.

I'm going to try it. I have these and they are really effective, but seem to fall out during the night.
