Conditions with symptom: 'snoring'
I only started snoring badly after I had a hysterectomy 12 years ago. When I wake in the morning my nose runs like a tap. What could have caused the snoring to start?
hi im 27 and my girlfriend is 25. my snoring keeps her awake and i'm often told to role over onto my side ware i spend the rest of the night. this means we dont really cuddle at night time and she has trouble getting back off to sleep when i wake her up with my snoring. what can be done??????
I've been snoring for a while now and I have been to see a specialist about it, he has told me that it is because of my nose, the passageway is to small and the only way to coorect it is an operation. I have since been back after not hearing anything for about 6 months and was told that I cant get the operation now because of cut backs. Ive got those plaster things that go over your nose at night and a gum guard to try and reduce the snoring but they dont work is there anything I can do as now me and my wife cant sleep in the same room let alone bed as it keeps her up all night she even has to wear earplugs even in the other bedroom
Ive been with my partner for 7 years. my snoring wasn't too bad to begin with but it has got to the point now that we cannot sleep together at all!!! i've put on a bit of weight since I met him and I have to sleep on the settee every night!! our relationship is suffering big time! my daughter also hears me snoring through walls during the night too! ive been to my doctors several times and been very upset too. ive been given steroid sprays and even be referred to ent dept at the hospital. my windpipe is narrow at my throat and I was given a brace to wear in my mouth but was also told by losing weight it might help! I have no will power and my circumstances have also caused depression now! I cant even go on holing with my touring caravan as its a total nightmare and I end up having to sleep in the car. please please help me xxx
Hi, I'm 24, female, 6'1", a non-smoker, and have a BMI of 20.71, and I am very active. Ever since I can remember I have suffered with snoring. I have never had a boyfriend due to this. No one will spend more than a few hours in bed with me once I am asleep, as the snoring is horrendous. This is becoming a massive problem for me, all my friends are settling down, getting married and having children etc and I haven't even had my first relationship. For years, I have been the brunt of my friends jokes, my parents held me back from sleepovers etc. I just want to be normal, I'm already of freakish height and I just want to feel like a woman. I am literally at my wits end. I am currently saving up for surgery, it will cost me around £2500 to have my tonsils out. I have spoken to my doctor about my concerns a few years ago (17/18yrs old) and they were not willing help, as I am now older and it is having a massive affect on my adult life; Please can you advise on whether it is worth pursuing the NHS for help, or whether it’s just worth me going private?
My question is somewhere between snoring, sleep apnoea, overweight and choking... Even when I was not overweight I occassionally had choking problems - especially when eating soft or stodgy bread or chicken breast. At the moment approximately every 2-3 months I will have an episode where wake up automatically because I am not able to breathe. I sleep on my stomach, and the only way I can describe the choking/coughing is its as if my lung has collapsed and it won't take in any air. At the time it is really scary and I panic trying to throw myself against a chair or something as a kind of heimlich manoeuvre. Somehow I manage to cough out a little, breathe out a little, and then I can start taking in air. In parallel my snoring has gotten louder (always snored a little bit, even when thin). I am having more choking episodes more easily. I am minus the 4 back teeth before the wisdom teeth, and I still have my tonsils if this makes any difference. Is all of this weight related, and do I have sleep apnoea?
Hi I'm a snorer and I have one tonsil bigger than the other one it also has a cyst on it which has been there for about2 years will this be what is causing the problem of snoring.
Hi I'm 29 yrs old and have a really bad snoring problem and its driving me and my husband mad. I fractured my nose about 4 yrs ago and I never got it seen to buy a doctor. I think it could be due to this. Please help me wot can I do. Thank-you Claire heatlie
Hi, I am a 30 year old, insulin dependant diabetic (relativly well controlled), I don't smoke, I rarely drink. My husband says that my snoring keeps him awake at night. Is there anything I can do before he resorts to the afore mentioned pillow?
I have apparently just started to snore. why would this be? i'm28, not overweight, don't smoke, rarely drink. my partner says about 20-30 minutes after I fall asleep I start snoring (on my back or side!) just don't understand why this has started now
