nasal strips

Post by kay » Tue Sep 27, 2016 10:42 pm

has anyone tried the nasal strips? if so, do they help and can you get them on the nhs? i was advised to try sleep pro by the consultant but i can't use it as it makes me gag. i'm getting a bit desperate now and would appreciate any help or advice.

I can't see how these things can work for snoring as it is caused by muscles and relaxed tissue in the throat.
You can get a sort of Nose snoring and tongue snoring, but it is rare. It is mostly in the throat and that is where the noise comes from, amplified by the mouth. Bid the Sleep Pro help at all?
The main cause is overweight, so if you are a few pounds to heavy try to loose it.
There are devices that you stick you tongue into that keep your tongue forward, but they have their own problems such as saliva and gums receding causing dental problems. They do work to a fashion, but they are expensive and do need replaced every couple of years.
If you can get hold of them, they might work but do have drawbacks.
AveoTSD and Good Morning Snore Solution are two of these.
Here is a review of one.
