My wife is suffering from sleep apnea! And she snores very very badly! It is driving me crazy, can any please tell me how they cope with it? Or how your partners coped?
Thanks Smile

Record her. Video if possible (night vision cameras are cheap).

You should only have to play it back once. 8-)

RE: wife driving me crazy!
my husband complained about my snoring, and my strangling noises... i would always just tell him "pot meet kettle" I have to put up with his snoring too, and I don't gripe about it all the time. If I can beat him to sleep it won't wake me like he says mine does him, tho....

I *knew* in the back of my mind that I had sleep apnea. It was my primary care doc that sent me to the sleep doc -- probably about 3 years after she first mentioned it.

If someone had told me I would not have to get up nine times a night to pee if I treated my apnea I woulda done it years ago!

just sayin.

(still waiting for the results of his sleep study... impatiently! it's been 2 weeks and it only took them a couple days to get back to me...)

هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه
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!
What you haven't told us Jon is whether or not you've discussed this with her. It is far more likely that her sleep apnea will result in very serious health ramifications for her than you will actually go crazy.

So it's time for a husband to wife "I care about you and I really would like it if you would stick around to take care of me when I get to be an old farp" conversation.

Farp?

RE: wife driving me crazy!
Sleep Number has a commercial for their adjustable beds. Couple goes to sleep and husband is snoring. Wife picks up the remote and the head of his bed goes up. A couple of seconds later her starts snoring. You see the husband's arm come up with the remote and her side of the bed goes up. Priceless.

BTW, my wife snores and gasps, but hers is caused by the pain meds she is on. She has been told by her doctors that a study would be inconclusive due to her meds and we need to work on the pain issues first.

Sounds like the operation was a success but the patient died to me. Why not offer her a cpap machine to see if it helps?

My 2C YMMV

I use my PAP machine nightly and I feel great!
