DH snores badly. He has no medical reason why, he's skinny and has allergies. He says I snore also, probably from allergies also.

I couldn't stand it any more and started sleeping in the guest room. That was quiet but lonely. Not a long term solution.

I had heard of these, and had even bought them

http://earplugsonline.com/

I had never tried them. I was sure I would hate them and they would keep me awake. Out of desparation I tried them. Heaven....... Once they are in I don't even feel them. They block out all noise (probably not good if you have to hear little children crying). I rarely hear the snoring, and if I do its soft. Not only that, but I sleep so much sounder, less tossing and turning. I bet all kinds of noises in the house had been waking me.

Why did I wait so long......

Thanks so much for the info. I have been sleeping in my own bedroom for 2 years now...pretty lonely. When company visits i will put ear plugs in but after awhile they hurt my ears, hopefully these will not hurt. My husbands snoring is so bad when we travel our guests usually get there own hotel room/cabin just because of the snoring. He has had his uvula removed and he might be considering dental appliance but it is $1500 out of pocket and since the surgery didn't work we haven't got much hope in the dental appliance working either.
Good luck!

Consider a sleep study.Body size doesn't matter but heavier people are prone to sleep apnea. Have it checked to take medical out of the question of why one snores. :zzz:

My snoring was bad until I had the Somnoplasty procedure. Now only occasionally will DW have to go to the other bedroom to sleep.

My husband snores, now he is multitask snoring. For the past two nights I have come to bed to find him clicking through channels while snoring. I have got to get this on video. He is sleeping, hand up in the air just clicking away. And the snoring is loud. Once I wake him up he will put down the remote and just go back to snoring.:confused:

Try the tennis ball trick. Sleep with a tennis ball (or similar sized ball) attached to the back of a pajama top or t-shirt. (You can sew or safety-pin a sock to the back of the pajama top, then put a tennis ball in it.) The tennis ball is uncomfortable if you lie on your back, and you will respond by turning on your side. Or wedge a pillow stuffed with tennis balls behind your back. Soon you will develop side-sleeping as a habit and not need the tennis balls. Also a good read: 10 Most Effective Snore Cures.

dental anti-snoring devices do actually work. One in particular from www.puresleep.com. my brother had surgery to no avail, both sinus and posterior palate. this device stopped his snoring. I was skeptical, but after a year i tried it, and i don't snore anymore either. Strange because i'm a dentist. I have ordered a few as back-up because they wear out every two years or so.

I'd leave home without my credit card, but NOT this device.

good luck. nothing else works that i know of.

Anyone who is a loud snorer owes it to themselves to do a sleep study. After several years snoring and poor sleep I went for a sleep study 2 months ago.During the sleep study I was recorded as stoping breathing 87 times in 7.5 hours of sleep. I was diagnosed as having sleep apnea and prescribed a CPAP machine. After sleeping just 1 night on the CPAP machine in the hospital I was sold. I had not felt that well rested in 10 yrs. It has been 2 months now and I would not do without it. We are planing on traveling to Barbados for 2 weeks in April and I will be taking the machine with me for the trip.

Defeinitely agree with the sleep apnea type study. Snoring can really be a symptom of a much larger problem, one that can kill you.

That being said, my husband lost 80 pounds and now doesn't need his CPAP. It's nice not moving every night.

I ordered these also - they work like a charm. I cut them in half because they are too big for my ears! I do think they eventually sort of dry out so that is why you need more than one pair.
