I think most people here cope with it by getting it treated. Has she talked to her doctor about this? Has she had a sleep study done?

I snored before I started CPAP therapy. Not all the time, but when I did, it could get quite aggressive. My girlfriend has been very happy with the results of CPAP therapy. So have I, even though I rarely heard myself snore. Smile

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

RE: wife driving me crazy!
I'm gonna take a WAG and say his wife probably is telling him he is crazy-she doesn't snore.
I used earbuds and a brown noise apt for ifone to drown her out....Now I'm getting a better night's rest in the new Lazyboy.... Like me it has caught up with HER and now I think she can admit she needs help even though she is a delicate little flower what would never snore Rolleyes

There is an ifone apt called iSnore you might look at for it or something similar.

I use my PAP machine nightly and I feel great!

RE: wife driving me crazy!
Both of you men: Tell her that treating sleep apnea results in a reduction or elimination of nighttime potty trips and that nocturia is strong evidence of apnea....

quit harping on her snoring, she doesnt snore Bigwink Bigwink Bigwink

Women don't snore. They just exhale loudly in their sleep!?!

Same when they're awake; only they form words.
