    Any solutions for snoring?

    Re: snoring?

    Nope. The throat sprays and nose strips don't help. I don't know about the no-snore pillows; it would seem if you moved at all during sleep you'd no longer be in the right position. Has anyone here had the back palate firmed up (or know someone that did.) I'd like to know if that works and if it is uncomfortable after being done.

      If you snore all the time, you really might consider having a sleep study done. Sleep apnea is a dangerous thing and keeps you exhausted. The first night I slept with a CPAP machine I felt better the next morning than I had felt in a long, long time. I immediately insisted my husband go for a study.....he had to have both the CPAP and an oxygen machine....it has helped his breathing, snoring and his energy level. And now that he doesn't snore....I sleep a lot better.

        Nope...that's why I always end up on the couch. Last night I threatened to smother DH with a pillow it was so bad.

          My hubby uses a humidifier. Wouldn't be without one. Older son says he uses one, too. Does it for them.

            sounds like a sleep study test is needed. CPAPs help tremendously!

                  BJintexas - have you tried the nasal pillows (I have to use the small and then bend it in a bit)? Whoever supplied your CPAP machine should make sure you get a headset/breathing apparatus that works for you otherwise the whole exercise is useless.

                  Now that I have a new CPAP with humidifier I sleep wonderfully well.

                    I also have a small nose. My mask is a petite and it is still too big. I think I am going to ask for a full mask. I was fine with this for about 2 weeks, but it has been bothering me since. it is just too darn big. I am calling my company today and asking for help. When I sleep with it I sleep for about 4 hours and then I wake up and I am done with it for the night. I want to sleep all night with it

                      Yeah Rube.... I hear ya Yes, I have a nasal pillow now..... Way too big I got my machine in Feburary and I was suppose to take the card in after 2 weeks so that my Doc could determine the level I needed. I have minimal apnea, but I wantes to see what it would do. I need to address this issue this week

                        Cindy - they have CPAPs for children they should be able to modify one for you. What a waste of time and effort and so frustrating when you can't get it work for you. The first mask I had was an over the nose mask and I could never get used to it and would throw it off after a couple of hours.

                        Anyone who snores should have a sleep study - if you need a CPAP get one you won't believe the difference. My sleep study showed that I did sleep during the night but I never reached REM sleep which is where you actually get real rest. I would wake up at the loud noise of dust falling. Not refreshing. Now, with a CPAP and a proper mask that works for ME I get a wonderful sleep. I don't even move in the night and my friends are happy when we go on vacation cause I don't keep them all awake.

                        On one trip I was so congested and didn't have my new CPAP with the humidifier - I ended up sleeping on the bathroom floor so the driver could get a good sleep LOL - they sure couldn't with me honking all night long.

                          I have to agree when I am able to use it, it is awesome. I have snored my whole life. My husband loves that I have the machine. Even the kids noticed that I don't snore anymore. Mine has the humidifier too. Do some not have them? I have only been using the cpap for about 3 or 4 months.

                            The older models didn't have them - they were extra. I had to wait 5 years before I could get a new one so that the government would pay for part of it.

                              I've Been Able To Wear Mine From Day One. No Problems, I Could Tell Immediatly It Helped. Dh Has One, He Just Can't Wear His. I Think It's More A Man Ego Thing, But He Has Tried, I Don't Know How Many Different Masks, And Can't Find One He Likes/tolerates. I Sleep More Comfortably Also When He Wears His. I'm Forever Poking Him To Make Him Quit Snoring Or To Make Him Breath.
