Everyone that is having problems with a man/woman that will not listen.
Sit down with them and talk quietly with them about their snoring (stay calm whatever the reaction, you can always drop it and come back to it).
Yes I know some will use any excuse and even start an argument to avoid the issue.
Offer to (and you should) go to the GP with them, if nothing else to support them and also explain to the GP that it affects you both.
You should listen to see if they stop breathing while asleep and if you need to record them while snoring and if they stop breathing (do not confront them with this unless you want an argument, unless they are very calm about it) and explain very calmly your concerns about them stopping breathing and or snoring.
If they refuse to go to the GP you can always get some leaflets about snoring and Sleep Apnoea and leave them where he/she can see them. If you are brave enough you can hand them to him/her and explain that they might just be suffering from this and that there may be a way to deal with it.
Most of all, try to persuade them to go to their GP and try (if they will let you) going along as well.
The GP may send them to E.N.T. (Ear, Nose and Throat) clinic first to check for other problems first. Don't go for an operation if they suspect it is Sleep Apnoea, first weigh up the options open to you first. Get a Sleep Study done (best at the hospital) but some do it at home now. Don't be put off if a home study does not give a positive, ask for one at the hospital as it is more accurate.
Above all, be supportive and not argumentative.
Men will not go near a GP unless they are in agony, so it may take a few calm conversations to persuade them to go.
How do I know men will not go to the GP, I am one
There are useful tips on how to spot Sleep Apnoea on the site, so do a bit of reading.
Sleepiness Scale is HERE
print it off and take it to the GP with you.
Oh and good luck, you might just need it.I was reluctant to go, but I am very glad I did.
It didn't even hurt to go and get treatment
Now I take my machine to bed every night If you managed to get your partner to go let us know how you did it.
