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

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!

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....

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