Once again I cannot get to sleep because of DH's snoring fsad

It is a regular occurance and I have often resorted to sleeping on the sofa because of it which isn't great but is better than no sleep at all. No spare room so that's not an option.

I have no idea what causes it - he is not overweight and has no health problems.

It is starting to seriously get me down - I don't cope well on broken or limited sleep and I have a demanding job.

It is driving me madfsad

Can you use ear plugs?

Could it be sleep apnea? Does he kind of gasp as well as snore? My DDad snored dreadfully and it was mainly because of the sleep apnea.

I'm also waiting for a referral to a sleep clinic to see if I have it. But I am quite overweight so that doesn't help matters

Although oddly when I take antihistamines for hayfever my snoring goes away.

He needs to see his GP and get a referral to ENT and prob the sleep clinic.

No joking, it is a deal breaker if he refuses to address a health problem that is impacting on your health. Sorry.

He needs to see a doctor. DHs snoring has been driving me round the bend. Even if he sleeps downstairs it is so loud it wakes me. I have 2 toddlers so if they sleep through on the rare occasion it's pretty annoying to be woken by him.

Anyway turns out he has some nose problem and has a spray to clear it. If that doesn't work he might have to have some minor snozzer operation.

Separate rooms. After 18 years together it’s the only way either of us get enough sleep. We tried everything but nothing worked. We resisted sleeping separately because people seemed so pearl clutchy about it, but once we decided it was best for us both, I can honestly say everything got better. We were less grumpy, less snappy, less resentful.

I feel your pain

I am right there with you, OP. And HE gets really grumpy when I poke him awake and tells ME to "get over it" (he's normally pretty selfless, so I know it's because he's tired, but come on!).

It's just the most annoying sound in the whole world

I have a snorey twitcher. The sofa is my friend.
