Why does my dad make loud snoring noises sporadically when he is awake?
My dad is diabetic, has high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, and has been hospitalized for two strokes. Lately, when I got to visit him, he breaths heavily- while awake- and then produces a loud snoring sound that cause some of his body to tremble as well. It sounds just like a snore but he is not asleep.
Hey may be a shallow breather. I do this too sometimes because in the past I used to breath shallow and am still paying for it. Occasionally, I will suddenly take a deep breath with a snore coming as an effect of my deep breath.
Maybe he is catching his breath? (+ info

What causes snoring and how can it be stopped?
My boyfriend recently started snoring a lot. It seems like it only happened when he sleeps on his back, but its getting to the point to where he keeps me up at night. I'm wondering what causes snoring. I would also like to know if anyone has any home remedies that might reduce it (and if you don't, just let me know what medications, nose strips, etc worked for you).
Snoring is caused by relaxed tissue vibrating. Some people who snore a lot have sleep apnea, some people do not. Many people who have sleep apnea snore, but some do not.
Since he is waking you up at night, watch him for awhile while he is snoring. Does he appear to stop breathing? Does he have to start to wake himself in order to start breathing again? If he does, then there is a good chance he may have sleep apnea. If he doesn't stop breathing, he likely does not have sleep apnea. If you suspect sleep apnea, he needs a sleep study. Other signs of sleep apnea are having difficulty waking up in the morning (not feeling refreshed from a night's sleep), waking up with a headache, and having trouble staying awake during the day (expecially if he has to be inactive such as sitting in a meeting, reading, watching tv).
Obstructive sleep apnea has many causes and many treatments. One cause is being over weight. Another is a deviated septum. Another is badly congested sinuses. Another is having too much tissue in the soft palate. CPAP and BiPAP are treatments that can be used for almost any form of obstructive sleep apnea. Weight loss is a treatment for sleep apnea due to being over weight. Seriously congested sinuses are treated either with antibiotics or surgery (depends upon just how bad it is.) Deviated septum is treated with a septoplasty (surgery). Having too much tissue in the soft palate is treated by a UPPP (surgery). A person can have more than one of these conditions at the same time. Only an ENT is qualified to do many of these treatments.
There is also central sleep apnea. It has to do with the brain forgetting to tell a person to breathe. It can be treated as well.
If you suspect that your boyfriend has sleep apnea, he needs a special sleep test done.
If he doesn't have any symptoms of sleep apnea, there are some over the counter remedies to try. If it seems that it his nose is the source is the cause of the problem, there are those little strips you can buy that are supposed to help hold the nose open. There is also a spray for the throat that is supposed to help stop snoring.
Since he only does it when he sleeps on his back, he may need to sleep on his side. There are pillows that are supposed to help you sleep on your side. (+ info
What medicine can i take to stop snoring?
I snore really loud and my snoring can be heard by everybody in the entire house hold?
what medicine can i take that doesn't affect my asthma?
It's not easy for me to admit, but sometimes I snore at night. It doesn't prevent me from getting a good night's sleep, but it keeps my husband awake. In fact, it drives him crazy! My problem is that I get congested at night, especially during allergy season. So, my method of treating it has been to combat my allergies and to find ways to keep my nasal passages clear at night. For me, that means using a menthol inhaler and placing a drop of peppermint essential oil on my pillow. If you snore, it may be for different reasons. The first thing you need to do is identify what they are. Once you do that, you will have a lot more success in finding a way to eliminate it.
Causes for Snoring
Snoring is caused when your nasal passages are narrowed or blocked. There can be a variety of reasons for this. Here's a list: Congestion Colds Allergies Overweight Sleep apnea Alcohol Muscle relaxant drugs Drugs that promote drowsiness Your physical traits such as a deviated septum or large tonsils Asthma Sleeping on your back
See a doctor to find a cause. If you snore, you may want to see a doctor. Even though most cases can be explained, there are some occasions where they indicate a more serious medical problem that may need treatment such as sleep apnea or asthma. In other words, they will help you find the cause and provide you with some solutions. For example, if you have a deviated septum, your doctor may recommend corrective surgery. If you need help losing weight, your doctor could provide you with some helpful advice. Doctors are trained to assist you in finding a cause for the things that ail you. If your snoring is prolonged or severe it can affect your health by interrupting your sleep patterns. By doing this you are taking a positive step to assisting your health.
Get rid of congestion. Even if you determine that your snoring is caused by something other than congestion, keeping your nasal passages as clear as possible will help. You can do this in a number of ways. Here are some of the best ways I've found that can help: * Take a decongestant. There are many choices--some are herbal or homeopathic remedies and others need to be purchased at the drug store. I personally don't like to take drug store remedies because I am not able to sleep when I take them. * Use a menthol inhaler. This is my favorite option. The menthol works for several hours and I find that when I use it, I don't snore. * Essential oils. If I can't find my inhaler or want a change of pace, I place a few drops of essential on my pillow. My favorites are peppermint, rosemary and tea tree.
Control your allergies. Allergies are another cause for snoring. If you control your allergies you can decrease your chances of snoring. You can either take over the counter medicine to control them, get a prescription from your doctor, or use natural remedies. Vitamin C, green tea, grape seed extract, and stinging nettle are my favorite natural allergy medications.
Control your weight. Being overweight is another common cause for snoring. If you keep your weight down or lose weight, that may help eliminate the snoring. You can choose to lose weight any method that will work for you. Just remember that slow, gradual weight loss is usually longer lasting. (+ info
How can I stop my husband from snoring with waking him?
I've tried tapping him- but it wakes him- and the snoring only stops temporarily. I've tried pinching his nose, kicking his foot, tickling him. The snoring doesn't wake me out of my sleep, but if I'm not asleep yet it keeps me up.
I do snore- but I wake myself up when I snore(my own snoring noise wakes me before it wakes him.) I've learned to adjust my pillow so that my airway is more open- then I do not snore-
He usually starts out on his stomach but when he rolls to his back that is when the problem starts.
If both of you are snoring loudly and throughout the night then you should see a doctor, because most people who snore badly don't realize they have a sleeping disorder that is unhealthy. Regular snoring should be like a kitten's purr and only last for a while. Loud, constant snoring is caused by an obstruction in the air passageway which interrupts the sleep cycle. Typically if you turn the person to their side or belly the snoring should stop cuz it opens up the airways. Best to ask your doctor about it at the next physical. (+ info

What is a good otc med for a snoring pit bull?
My pit bull, Bones, snores so loud at night when she sleeps. It doesn't seem to be affecting her quality of sleep, just mine...LOL I'm pretty sure her vet could prescribe something, but I was wondering if anyone had tried any of the over the counter medications for dogs with snoring problems. If so, did any of them seem to work?
Only your vet can tell you what you need to know.
Essentially, unless your dog has an occlusion (a blockage of some sort), there isn't much to do. Nor should you.
My dogs snore too, and the get worse with age (like people), so I sympathize. I just had to learn to live with it.
Take her to the vet and get her checked out. But the overwhelming likelyhood is she just snores!
Good luck! (+ info
How can I help my boyfriend to stop snoring?
My 31 year old boyfriend snores like a pig and it is not doing our relationship any favours!
He had his nose broken a few years back which may not help but his snoring is getting louder and louder. Does anyone have any ideas on what kind of treatments we can get from a chemist or any advice on how to quieten him down?!
Any ideas would be much appreciated.
He starts sleeping on his side and sometimes rolls onto his back. I roll him over but, generally, he will snore regardless of the position he sleeps in!
does he sleep straight, facing the ceiling? its one of the causes of snoring. And his mouth must be open during sleep, right? Ask him to sleep turning on right or left side. Left is actually ideal, but he can choose. (+ info
