    In a nutshell, what would you do if your spouse snores crazy?

      Apparently, snore more crazy than she does.  Other than that, nothing.

      No one can get noticed of such terrific habits unless someone watches her spouse while he is sleeping. Even if it is there, it is better to take your spouse to a doctor and of course, the remedy is there.  Snoring causes due to high blood pressure, people having excess amount of liquor or the man is   suffering from sinus. Obesity is also the main factor for this. Better to consult a physician.

      Go to a pharmacy (drug store) and by one of many products available over the counter your spouse can take to stop snoring.
      If this fails...kick him/her out of bed and say 'use the spare room' if you have one, or 'downstairs with you to the sofa'!

    Suffer and suffer some more. LOL  This is why some really smart person created sleeping medication to knock out people like me who cannot sleep with people like him.  Some choose separate bedrooms. My hubby snores so badly, my kids hate going on family vacations because they have to sleep in the same hotel as he is in lol  Seriously, our bedroom is upstairs, I can hear him in the kitchen on the main floor.  It is awful!  I love him, but would trade his snoring!

    I was, but I didn't think anything of it.  It was just how it was.  I don't know....   Maybe people just need to make sure they're good and exhausted before they try to sleep; because if they are, all the snoring in the world won't keep them awake.  (I'm apparently "blaming the victim", aren't I....    hmm )

    Like anything, after a while you would probably get use to it and not even notice they were snoring anymore. I know that way I sleep I wouldn't even hear it..

      Maybe if you fall asleep first, you wouldn't notice it.  But, married for over thirty years, I can definitely say that I can't fall asleep if he is snoring while I'm still awake.

      Drugstores (and maybe discount stores too) sell a little device that sticks on the outside of the nose that supposedly helps to keep the air passages open.  I've heard that it's fairly effective, but don't have any personal experience with it.

    Better snoring than yelling.  There's nothing like a person who does that weird, moronic, yelling-thing because he's dreaming that he's yelling but nobody hears him - so he yells louder and louder and wakes up the whole house (or himself).  lol

    I fall asleep quickly and sleep like a log-- so I could probably sleep through it, but snoring can be a symptom of a bigger problem like sleep apnea-- so frequent snorers should have the advice of a medical specialist.

    I used to wear earplugs. Also, he would wait until I was asleep before he would come to bed. That helped a little.
    Here is something strange - I got so frustrated one night I shushed him. Seriously. I said "shhhh" - not loud, just in a normal casual way. And guess what - it worked. He would shush. Not long, five minutes or so, but usually that was all it would take for me to get back to sleep. To this day he thinks I'm full of beans about it lol he didn't hear me doing it to him.

    My first night out on my own after the divorce was HEAVEN. I live very near to a major hospital, and train tracks are only 3 blocks away. I don't go half an hour without freight trains or sirens going off.

    I sleep like a baby wink hee hee

    I think medical checkup for frequent snoring is must. Snoring is caused due to some severe problems including heart problem. Mostly people are advised to sleep in their right side direction, as putting low pressure on heart causes less snoring.

      I would be pissed off! [Excuse my candor]. Especially since I am a light sleeper and any noise wakes me up or interferes with 'me' falling asleep.

      I would be trying to solve the problem while being angry until the silence brought back the peace and quiet!

      Just a truthful statement that many go through. Anyone else have sensitive hearing???

      I actually put up a snoring cures site and talked about all the things that can cure or at the very least reduce snoring.

      I now love my snoring partner.

      The actual site is in my profile if your interested.

      My favorite weapon of choice - Commercial grade ear plugs.

      My Mom used to say that when my Dad wasn't snoring, he was talking, or even better, sitting bolt upright and singing the national anthem (he is a retired sportscaster).  My hubby also snores, very sweetly and quietly though.  I am so extremely blessed to be married to him that I just lay there and feel gratefulness that he's there, especially when one considers that I snore right back once I'm asleep.

        LOL! Patriotic sleep deprivation, I love it!  That's the funniest sleep disorder I've ever heard of.  Personally, I have the kind of sleep disorder that makes people run for the hills - now and again I act out dreams (usually violent)  My husband would settle for snoring as opposed to a psycho standing over him at 3am.

      I made mine husband go and have an operation,  He still snores, but it's much quieter. I said I'd divorce him if he didn't. The other thing you can do is put in ear plugs.  There are some really good ones now.

      Snoring can be a very serious issue.  Sleep apnea is very dangerous.  Anyone excessively snoring should be tested.  It could save their life.  My husband suffers from sleep apnea.
