Cures for snoring?? Please HELP??

Post by BroodyBirdy » Fri Jun 03, 2011 9:14 pm

Okay, I am really hoping that some of you have advice/cures/ideas on how to prevent snoring lol.

My boyfriend snores every single night, extremely loud and deep. :( I've put up with it for way over a year now and I can't do much more lol. I wake every morning with a headache because of it and don't sleep very well through-out the nights due to it too.
Were both wondering if anybody has had the same problem or is having the same problem and if you know how to overcome it, if thats even possible. BTW, he does have asthma so that could be partly the reason too.

Really hope we get some resonse to this :)

Thanks :)

The only definite cure is separate beds, for you at least, don't know how he would feel about that.

If it is that bad he should consult his GP and get professional help, there are a dozen old wives tales about effective ways to cure snoring but most of them are about interrupting the persons sleep pattern, not sleeping on the back and such like, and can have side effects because of it.

Also weight can play a part in snoring.

What have you tried already?

Hi there

My partner only seems to snore when he has had had a couple of beers, and that also causes him to be like a dead weight so I cannot even move him or wake him up to tell him to turn over. Lucky for me he is not a big drinker so this only happens a couple of times a month but even so I can sympathise with how you must feel as I get so frustrated and wake up all ratty while he is bright and breezy! In the end he bought me some ear plugs, I make sure i put them in before he falls to sleep and they work a treat, I can still faintly hear him but its not enough to keep me awake so we both wake up happy as larry! might be worth a try if you havent already!

This sucks, that's right. What did you try out? Do you have a separate bed room? Earplugs?
Is he allergic? Have you tried anti-allergy bedding?
If this does not help, then you must go to the doctor with him. I can't see an oder solution.

This must be a rarity, as it seems like it is usually the other way around, but my GF snores a treat so I am after similar advice.

It is sooo frustrating! It starts off as a gentle "puttering" but a few times now she has proper woken me up with her midnight thunder! I imagine Zeus makes less of a rumble when he's asleep!

I've read that you can get nose strips that can cure snoring, they open up the airways apparently. Have any of you tried them? Any luck?

SOmetimes snoring can be caused by blockages or problems in the sinus and or throat.
First stop the doctors to make sure all is well.
After that it's a bit trial and error really.
The strips worked for my step dad but only for a few weeks, odd!
Now my mum wears earplugs. I know it doesn't completely help but it certainly makes it a bit easier on the ear.

My boyfriend snores too...I feel your pain! ](*,)

Sometimes lying on your back can make things worse. Has he ever tried tying something hard on his back (like a tennis ball, or a bouncy ball) so that when he goes to roll over it feels uncomfortable and rolls back onto his front or side?
Go to Glasgow at least once in your life and have a roll and square sliced sausage and a cup of tea. When you feel the tea coursing over your spice-singed tongue, you'll know what I mean when I say:
'It's good to be alive!'"

My Dad used to snore loud enough to vibrate the entire house!! He tried all sorts of 'cures' but the option that has worked for him is a metal mouth guard that holds his lower jaw in a certain position that keeps his airway fully open and completely stops him snoring. You can get plastic (cheaper) versions, but it is apparently like trying to sleep with a huge mouthguard in, which some people can cope with, but others find restrictive. The metal ones are easier to breathe through.

There are other snoring therapies out there so start off with a trip to his GP and ask for a referral to an ENT specialist who should be able to help you further.

Good luck - my poor Mum suffered for 24 years with exactly what you have described!
