    Snore?

    Do you ever have to hit the couch in order to get some sleep?

    It's allergy season here. Nuff said. :rolleyes:

    Anyone every try the nose strips - any other remedies?

    Not my partner (as I don't have one :( ) but my dad snores like a lawn mower. Well not really, and but the worst part is that it isn't a regular pattern so you can't "tune out".

    I don't think he has tried anything to fix it though, my mom just seems to deal with it.

    I can't type to save my life lately.

    And yeah, the SO sounds like he's suffocating at all hours. :rolleyes:

    And yeah, it's not sleep apnea, or treatable. :eek:

    I snore when I sleep on my back, but since I can't fall asleep on my back and need to sleep on my stomach, it's coo baby, it's coo.

    And if your significant other snores, just push them onto their sides. When they're half asleep, they really won't find the pushing annoying at all.

    I used to snore when I was little, but then had my tonsils and adenoids out which fixed that. There are also other surgeries to fix snoring. While it may seem a bit extreme, it can stop not only the snoring but sleep apnea also.

    Edit: Kind of irrelevant now that I read iGary' other post. I think it's going to have to be separate bedrooms. :p

    Yeah, I do that, but then we end up yelling at each other because I woke him up to puch him over, he yelled at me, and then I yell at him for yelilng at me.

    No.

    I've been known to snore if I end up sleeping on my back. She usually just rolls me over on to one side. Or elbows me in the ribs. :D

    My wife does the same thing ... Are you sure we're not married to the same woman?

    Man, you really are not able to type... ;)

    Apparently, I used to snore AND talk in my sleep way back in the days before I moved out of my mom's house. (At some point, I stopped.) Never had a problem with an SO snoring...

    Well, then, I guess it's fine that you're apparently sleeping with my wife. Shall we draw straws for who gets Saturday night ;)

    I snore. The strips do not work. The sprays do not work.

    Yeah, me and the couch have a special relationship during allergy season.

    If it's not my partner snoring, it's our beagle. Partner stops snoring when he's on his side, but he also sleep-punches, so it's usually not worth me trying. :)

    One of our roommates just graudated, so the couch has become a hazard. When he gets blitzed, his friends will drive him home, open the door, and throw him on the couch without first checking for current couch occupants. :eek:

    None have as far as I'm aware, and I don't either so I'm told.

    Though I do sleep walk, I try and climb out windows, and run down stairs screaming my head off trying to get out of the front door... that kind of thing.

    Thankfully, snoring isn't an issue... now the fact that he can't sleep without the tv on, that's another story. : /

    Loudly enough to keep an entire house up all night. Some friends were watching a movie; one of them thought the vibrations were caused by the bass (and subwoofer) from the movie's sounds. :rolleyes:

    He's gotten a sleep study done, he does indeed have sleep apnea.

    He's even stopped breathing and made choking sounds before. :( So he's no longer allowed to sleep on his back. :D

    I find that the breathe-right strips do the trick to an extent...

    Or so the person I wake up next to tells me... :rolleyes:

    Yeah, Rob sounds like someone is choking him. :eek:

    But they say he's OK. :rolleyes:

    But to be fair, I am supposedly wicked loud myself.

    Who's 'they?' Maybe a second opinion would be helfpuf? I just figured that difficulty with breathing usually does not mean someone's okay. :confused: Anyhow, he's supposed to use a breathing machine if the apnea worsens (the kind that essentially forces a ton of air into you).

    My mum has that problem and has a machine that helps her breathe at night. Apparently, her air passage seems to collapse at night so that she can't sleep, and if this lack of oxygen (at some periods) at night, it would cause brain damage or something, hence the machine.

    I haven't seen it, actually. Haven't been that worried about my mum for a long time, although I know it's nothing. It's just hard to hear that sort of news 2 months after she started using it. :rolleyes:

    My wife snores, talks, takes up most of the bed and steals the duvet!

    :mad: :(

    Next time Rob starts snoring, chuck a bookcase at him. It might break his nose and then he'll have to go to hospital for a while and you can get some sleep.

    That or lace his food with anti-histamines...
