Do you Snore when you sleep.

Hi there, how many of you snore in your sleep. I know you may not know it, but certainly some of your partners would have complained or commented on it. I am a heavy snorer, but my wife has never complained or commented on it. But, when I go for some meeting , I have to share a room with a companion, and most of my companions have complained about it and almost everybody used to avoid sharing rooms with me.What about you, what is your feelings about this?

As far as I am aware i dont snore. My dad does, and my mum is always complaining about it! I think they shouldnt be horrible about snoring. Its not exactly your fault, and you cant help it - You cant control it! And im sure if it was the other way round they wouldnt like it. But i can see their point of view too. I dont think i would complain if my partner was snoring, although for every single night i might after a while. When we've been staying in hotels and things, my dads snoring has never kept me awake!

You are a nice kid x_Jo_x, in these times, when the young people only complain about their parents, it is nice to see such positive comments. You are right, it is not the fault of the snorers because they do not know what they are doing.

Awww thank you very much! Yeah i do complain about my parents sometimes lol, but they arnt all bad and i would never unnesessarily complain about them! They are very kind to me most of the time! And yep, i think if its not someones fault you shouldnt take it out on them. Its just unfair and theyre are so many better ways to solve the problem, like talk to them about it and agree on a way to try to stop the problem or something. Complaining at someone about it wont make it stop!

My boyfriend and I both snore. He gets super loud but it's funny, it doesn't bother me at all when I snore :-) I am told I can get quite loud but my boyfriend sleeps through everything and it's not a problem. He sometimes keeps me awake for a while but if I wait long enough, I finally drop off to sleep.

My fiance has told that I do snore, in my sleep. I don't think that it's a lot, but according to him, I do snore. Before he told me, I didn't know whether I snored or not. I don't mind if I snored. It's not a huge deal for me.

Yes, the unfortunate thing is, we do not know, that we snore and disturb other peoples sleep. Rightly said, it is not a big deal.

I think I don't snore, as my family would say that I sleep very silently. I don't even move as much as others do when sleeping. My BF does snore. I don't complain about it. I think he's still cute. I even record his snoring sometimes. lol

I snore much too. My dorm mate made it a comment every morning I woke up. In the end of the year He started to snore and he said he haven't snored before. He didn't stop it even if I yelled at him when sleeping, I had to go and hit him with a pillow a couple of times. It's really annoying if someone snores and you can't sleep, so I tell everyone I sleep with to shut me down if I start doing it, but dont know why they dont have guts to do anything, they just complain in the morning.

My father is heavy snorer too. I never comment on him but I wake him up everytiime I hear him snore. Yes its true your room mate will make comment avoid you in sharing rooms with them specially if they are not snorer they not use to here such noice. Same thing with them I don't want to sleep with person that is snoring. But you can dicipline your self in snoring while sleeping. But I sudgest please go to doctor and ask their opinion. On my research that people whos heavy snorer has problem with their heart.

Thanks for the response TheGladys02. Do not wake up your father when he is snoring if it is a normal type of snoring which you have been hearing regularly. Wake him up only if you feel his snoring is different than the usual. You are right about the fact that heavy snorer have problems with their heart. I already have a heart problem, and I had undergone a triple bypass surgery three years ago.

I am not a snorer, at least until now. Nobody has told me; so its pretty obvious that I don't snore. I had read an article the other day about snoring. It said that snorers are not good sleepers. I mean, they don't get good deep sleep. It is a half-hearted sleep. So thinking of ways of sleeping deeply and soundly can automatically reduce your sound to manageable levels. You might probably know a few things about sleeping well and I would not elaborate on it. Since you haven't asked anything about how to get rid of it I think it is inappropriate to add anything else.

Just cannot stay from giving some information which might help. If someone snores, their partners can be told to shake him or just change the side on which the snorer is sleeping. This can change the air intake and sometimes can get rid of snoring which happens due to insufficient air intake. It is usually taken as a block somewhere in the wind pipe or larynx and clearing it can actually help.

Thanks for the response Neeraj. Yes, a few other mylotters have also mentioned, that if you sleep side ways, the snoring is reduced. I am not very sure about the half-hearted sleep, point, cause, I have seen some people who snore a lot, having a deep sleep and awaking fresh in the morning.

I cannot claim the accurateness of this information but I had read an article some time back which stated that snoring is not a sign of deep sleep. Yes, snorers can have a deep sleep and this statement cannot be correct after all, but only first hand experience can give us the wisdom which is difficult to come even after reading thousands of articles.

If you have any habits snore do not have to worry, it can be cured with the following simple recipe: take 2 vertebra turmeric, wash clean, turmeric in a flat with in tumbuk, enter into the glass, give a little warm water enter the 2 spoons honey, poke to the average, drink. Do this for a week of consecutive, if you do with the earnest, snore practices will be lost.

I am aware that I snore but there is pretty little I can do about it, Frank does not complsint about it so I am ok with it but I know I can get very loud. I am wondering if sooner or later on a business trip you will get the benefit of having a room for yourself since no one wants to share.
• India
31 Jul 09
Thanks for the response ShellyB. Your husband is like my wife who does not complain about their partners snoring. Regarding the room for myself, it is already happening some time, because some of my other collegues do not sleep in my room, and prefer to stay in some other rooms.

do i snore when i sleep no. i hate people who snore. not literally but it bothers me alot! thank goodness my sister doesn't snore i have to share a room with her. the only time i snore is when i'm sick and my nose is stuffy. my brother and other sister snore and my mom does sometimes so thats weird. i think snoring may be genetic because there dad snores and mine doesn't and wow he snores really loud!!!!!! and i heard that if you snore it can be deadly or something. it means your not breathing correctly or something like that i read a article about it.

Thanks for the responose. You are right about the genetic part. My dad was also a big snorer. snoring is quite bad for health, but unfortunately nothing can be done about it.

No, I do not snore when I sleep. My husband snores when he sleeps though when he is really worn out. In fact, I'm sitting on the bed on my laptop right now and he is asleep beside of me and he is snoring. LOL It drives me crazy listening to it sometimes. A lot of times I will touch him and tell him to stop and he'll stop for a little while but then he'll start up again. LOL

Come on sweetgirl_k1, give a chance to your poor husband. You know he has got no control over it and does not know that he is snoring. The fact,that I snore was known to me only after 10 years of marriage, when we went for a holiday, and both my brother in law and Sis-in law commented on it.When I asked my wife about it, then only she informed me that I snore a lot and she was suffering it for the past 10 years.

As you mentioned also how can i say that i snore or not but yes ppllz do complaint about me that i snore but its in light mode, some peoples snore heavily and loud and it disturb others i think you are one of them but i do not snore much louder. My friends and ppllz around me have no problem to stay with me and my wife also says that i do snore but it dosent disturbs her. I wann say your wife really loves you so take good care of her because she never complained about your snoring while you know well other ppllz around you even dont like to share a room with you. If you love someone accept his bad things also, today we all only like have a good good and only good partner but no one is 100% perfect so it shows how much she loves you.

I don't snore.My dad does and he can get pretty loud.At times his snoring can get so loud, that he wakes himself up..lol..its very cute.Mum never says anything to him. I have issues sleeping if someone snores too loudly, coz I am a light sleeper. But otherwise I know that when someone snores its something they can't control,so it doesn't make me angry.It just makes me sleepless.lol. I don't think its nice of your companions to complain like that.They should be more tolerant.

I definitely snore. I have a lot of breathing problems, including allergies and asthma, so when I'm sick or having trouble breathing at night, I'll snore. My partner says it isn't really loud or anything, but it still worries me. As for other people snoring, I don't mind so long as it isn't terribly loud. If I'm already asleep when they start snoring, I'm usually fine.

You are right to be worried about your health. I also had the inturrupted breathing during snoring before my heart attack. Take care.

Hello there, well, i think i belong to the people who always complain on it. well, i don't snore, my parents know it, coz its shameful for a woman to be a heavy snorer..and i don't really like sharing room with others, or sleeping in other places coz i can't sleep for the whole night, it will take me like 1 week just to adapt to the new environment..
• India
31 Jul 09
There is nothing to be shameful if you are a heavy snorer. Once again it has nothing to do with gender, and I have seen girls, who are quite young, who snore a lot. This might be due to the hard work, and they might have been tired or they might have nasal problems.

Luckily I do not snore. I think its a matter of structure why some people snore and some people don't. But one thing that can also prevent snoring is by sleeping on side lying position. This would probably clear out the airway. Commonly it is the tongue that partially obstructs the airway during sleep causing this snoring sound. Perhaps you should try it, maybe it will work for you.

Yes some other Mylotters have also mentioned about sleeping sideways, will reduce snoring. Must ask my poor wife about this.

I don't think I snore. But my children and friends have told me I do snore once in awhile. I have never heard me snore. LOL Over the years, I have known a few people who snore. Some are worse than others. I like the ones where their snoring actually soothes me and helps me to sleep. It is like listening to music. Same principle at least. There is a pattern to their snoring. Makes it easy to listen to. Grandma always said: If a man can sleep while snoring loudly, he must be sleeping deeply.

Nice response royal52gens. I dont think anybody will hear their own snoring. This is the first time, I have ever heard somebody comparing snoring to music. Well if everybody was like you, I do not think there will be any complaint about snoring.
• India
31 Jul 09
oh well, as you said, how am I supposed to know??!!LOL…my husband is a heavier sleeper than me and I have heard him snore plenty…it becomes specially difficult for me to sleep in the winter when the noise of the fan is not there to mask the snores….well, he says I snore too, but I think that’s more to get even with me and any actual snoring on my partLOL

Well, I always asked my my mom, my room mate if I snore or not. Fortunately, I am not base on them. My partner do snore sometimes but not too often, specially when he got tired for the rest of the day. I try to change his bed position make him to side ways to avoid the snoring. Based on research, 90% of people snoring had a heart problem. Hope not.

You are quite right, that people who snore have got heart problems. Thanks for the response.

hello there! sometimes i snore a bit especially if the day's been very busy for me..well, accordingly. but it's not really that loud that could shatter one's eardrums, at least. but my hubby does snore so loud that i really have to turn him side to side because i can already notice that sometimes, his breathing is interrupted because of the snoring..i'm getting used to it though.
• India

Be careful, if the breathing is interrupted, because this may be due to some other reasons. When I had my heart problem, the first symptom was my breathing was interrupted because of snoring.
