What can I do about my snoring?
According to my husband, I snore very loud when I'm sleeping and usually, it's hard for him to fall sleep with all the noise. What can I do about it?

snoring happens when you're too tired. so i guess thats why you're snoring. so if you do something about this stress you're going through maybe you're snoring wouldnt be loud enough.

i heard also that there can also be a problem with your nose. maybe you can ask your doctor about it. :) i am not really sure about this. :) hope this could help! :D

Boots
hey girl...............Tell um to sleep on the couch if he dont like it! :) here is not much you can do unless you talk to a Doc about it

Snore strips do not work I have tryed um


Him
I am no doctor but I have found in my experience that a lot of women snore when they are really, really tired try making a nice relaxing environment before you go to bed. Try some nice scents lavender works wonders, change the bedroom up a bit, flip the mattress, try sleeping at the opposite end of the bed, or just try to get more "good" quality sleep. Hope this helps

Do you feel tired during the day?? Ask if he thinks your breathing ok? Are you over weight? Ask your doctor about sleep apnea I snor and stop breathing several times every time i sleep You may need to use a cpap machine to keep air goining into you .. THis is serious Can be fatal > ihad to retire early and stop driving fell asleep at traffic lites,,You may need an oximeter, test and an over nite sleep study . Call your doctor soon webmd has good info.

What can you do about the snoring or your husband not liking the snoring.
Ear plugs for him
Sleep with head a little higher. and try the dry mouth gargles and saline nose spray.
I used to snore so badly I would wake myself up- only to find my cat had stuck his paw in my mouth trying to shut me up.

Buy yourself a few extra pillows and prop yourself up in bed, rather than lying flat on your back. You'll prevent the tissues in your throat from falling into your air passages.

Raise the head of your bed. An easy way to do it is to place several flat boards under the legs at the top end of the bed.

A couple of old phone books under each leg should also raise the bed enough to do the trick.

Sleep on your side. Of course, there's no guarantee you'll stay in that position, but at least start on your side with your arms wrapped around a pillow. There's a good reason you don't want to sleep on your back: in that position, you're tongue and soft palate rest against the back of your throat, blocking the airway.

Try taking a decongestant or antihistamine if nasal congestion is causing your snoring. Use these only as a temporary measure if you suspect that a cold or allergy is to blame. Prolonged use of either can be harmful.

Tape your nose open with nasal strips, available at most pharmacies . They may look odd, but who's looking? Following the directions on the package, tape one of the strips to the outside of your nose before you fall asleep. They work by lifting and opening your nostrils to increase airflow.

Gargle with a peppermint mouthwash to shrink the lining of your nose and throat. This is especially effective if your snoring is a temporary condition caused by a head cold or and allergy. To mix up the herbal gargle...
Add 1 drop of peppermint oil to a glass of cold water. (Only gargle - do not swallow).

Change your sheets and pillowcases often to relieve nasal stuffiness, alleviate bedroom allergens. Try to vacuum your floors and curtains often too.



Try drinking nettle tea. Herbalists recommend it for soothing the inflammation caused by pollen allergies. To make the tea:

Pour a cup of boiling water over 1 tablespoon of dried leaf.
Cover the tea and let it steep for 5 minutes.
Strain and drink.
Drink up to 3 cups a day, 1 cup just before your bedtime.



If hugging a pillow doesn't help, you can tackle the problem with using a tennis ball. Sew a little pouch on the back of a top and tuck a tennis ball inside. At night, if you start to roll onto your back while you're asleep, you'll get a nudge from the ball, prompting you to get back on your side.

Lose Weight! Weight loss can reduce your snoring by easing any constriction of the upper airway.

Quit Smoking. Tobacco smoke irritates mucous membranes, so your throat swells, narrowing the airway.
Smokers also have more problems with nasal congestion.

If you regularly take any kind of medication, talk to your doctor about alternatives. Some drugs can make snoring worse, including sleeping pills and sedatives.

There is surgery available now if your snoring problem is a function of sleep apnea.
