I’ve always snored. But it’s usually rare or at least infrequent enough that if Donnie had to wake me up to reposition that was all I needed and it didn’t happen all the time.
Then, it seemed to start happening more frequently. And then it seemed like one wake-up/repositioning a night was not enough. I would just start snoring again. And now? I’m someone who snores so loud EVERY NIGHT and can not be disrupted from it that I basically sleep on the couch now.
I tried sleep nose strips and they don’t do crap. I don’t drink much anymore (one light beer before bed at most) and I don’t eat a lot of dairy.
I know a sleep study would be ideal but we are not insured right now so until then, I’m wondering if you know of any things that work?
(Don’t tell me to lose weight. I’m happy with my weight and I’m not going to negatively impact my progress around body image by dieting to see if it keeps me from snoring.)
This couch is just not ideal to put it simply. It’s small, first of all, and I share it with a medium-sized dog. But it’s also a couch we bought because every piece/cushion/frame can be replaced (it’s uber-pet friendly) but what you sacrifice for this is a bit of comfort. There’s no springs or support, it’s just wood/netting under the cushions and so my old body does not sleep long without needing to reposition and there are not a lot of positioning options on a small couch.
Also, my dog has this weird habit where he wakes me up in the middle of the night just so we can switch positions on the couch.
Anyway…this is me just looking for non-medical snoring remedies. Things that have worked for you or people you know. The internet is full of suggestions (like: LOSE WEIGHT) but I’d like to narrow down the process a bit.
