Hi there,

Do you snore??
My husband says I make some awful noises sometimes, almost like my airways are blocked :yikes:
I wondered if this is just something all of it's own or if it's a associated with the Fibro :?: :?: :)

I have it on good authority that I make more noise than a rabid moose....

I have woken people up on the other side of a camp site, and since getting a new neighbour a few months ago,I have now discovered that she hasn't slept a wink since she moved here....which is a shame cos she's a nice neighbour and I'm sure it must be me keeping here awake..... :oops:

I do try to sleep on my side, knowing that I will stand a good chance of making a little less noise, and I do know when I'm on my back cos I wake myself up with the racket I make.... :lol:

I also snore and have woken myself up when my airway closes over and I briefly seem unable to breathe. My GP says I may be suffering from sleep apnea, however I am overweight and so I am deseparately trying to lose some weight in the hope that it helps with the snoring (before my hubby resorts to the couch to get a nights sleep) and also help me to feel better about myself.

i'm told that i snore as well both in bed and even when i'm sat up in my armchair :yikes: the kids think it's very funny. I have narrow airways in my nose and my 6yr old little girl snores as well quite loudly but I think she has the narrow airways as well

My OH says I snore like a buzz saw. I get sleep apnoea too which makes him worry. He says if I stop snoring he has to wake me up because I've stopped breathing. He does worry a lot bless him.

:lol: :lol: I couldn't help :lol: while reading this thread. Both I and my Boyfriend snore (although only I have fibro). my sister told me last year that sleeping with me in the room was like trying to sleep with a freight train going through the room! (I find it hard to believe that I snore that badly but at least I haven't woken myself up with it yet :D ) The only problem though that I also talk in my sleep so I don't know what I've said :dunno: (mind I can get out of it by reminding those around me that whatever you say it's normally rubbish!) :oops: .

Well good luck with the solutions guys (wait to know if the ear plug thing works).

I don't snore, but apparently I sometimes scream, like a proper scream of terror. I have no idea I'm doing it though and apparently my Boyfriend was like "whats wrong?" then I blamed him for waking me up..... :lol:

Boyfriend does snore though, but only when he's falling asleep, so only in the lighter sleep phases. When he's properly asleep he doesn't snore at all.

I am certain he has rhinitus though, his nose is constantly blocked and he exibits other symptoms that scream rhinitus at me (my step sister has it pretty bad) but after reading about chronic snoring, I'm starting to think it's a form of sleep apnea. It sounds like his airways are blocked and he has to force the air in. Sometimes he'll be silent, like he isn't breathing then suddenly, a noise I can't even describe!. This suggests sleep apnea, but he'll never go to the Dr's. I can't wear earplugs because I just can't stick stuff in my ears, they go all hot and it just feels horrid. One day! ONE DAY! I will kick him until he goes to the Dr's!
