  • You can try snore strips. You can try snore spray. You can have him see the doctor and get evaluated.

    Severe snoring can be a symptom of sleep apnea, which can be a dangerous condition.

  • oh geeze, I know about that. We've been married 3 1/2 years! I'll wrap the pillow around my head. (that doesn't usually work well! lol) or I'll smack him and tell him to roll over to his other side, where he usually stops. He tried the breathright strips, but they didn't work for him. I'm SUCH a light sleeper, and being pregnant, I'm pretty sure I'm going to need to invest in some squishy earplugs soon. I've just been putting it off because my husband is such a heavy sleeper that I get scared if anything were to happen he wouldn't know.
    He also has apnea, but he hasn't been checked for it.

  • Believe it or not, I got used to the snoring somehow! After I had our baby back in June, the snoring is the least of my nighttime worries!

  • I always pinch my husbands nose until he wakes up from not being able to breathe (only a couple seconds) and I tell him to roll onto his side. That makes it stop until he rolls back onto his back.

  • Get him to a dr for a sleep study and one of you sleep somewhere else until you find out what's causing his apnea

  • Ear Plugs work for me, CVS has nice ones that you can still hear (emergency's) but they block out the snoring level and bring it down so you can sleep.
    I also noticed that as long as the husband doesn't drink alcohol, it doesn't dry him out so bad, if he drinks, he snores really bad!!!

  • I sent my SO to an ENT. Actually, I just told him I would no longer be sharing a bed with him until he saw someone. The ENT did a 3 minute procedure where he widened the nasal passage and *ta-da* no more snoring. 3 years of hell cured in 3 freaking minutes.

    I'm sorry, but it was effecting my health and mental health. It was that or seperate bedrooms.
