I know I snore because my ex boyfriend told me plus friends when we have slept in the same room. I never used to snore but now I am totally paranoid about it. I am dreading meeting a new guy because when he stays over he's going to find it such a turn off. I've not got a clue how bad the snoring is but I know it's usually when I've had a big drinking session. Is this forever, how can I stop it and how do I go about sorting a sleep test?
I feel very much the same. When I went to australia travelling 10 years ago i assume I didn't snore as no-one ever told me I did and I stayed in shared rooms all the time with no complaint. Then I seemed to become a heavy breather as people would call it. Friends have now told me having shared a room with me that I do snore. I assume it can't be terrible else they would have been nudging me or saying how they couldn't sleep a wink but i am still really embarrassed.
I am single and dread the idea of a new man staying over as I would feel i could not let myself fall sleep for fear of turning into a noisy pig. worse, I am very put off by men who snore loudly so to think that when I am asleep and its out of my control, I am making noise is horrible.
I have tried Rhynil to try to tighten the mouth palate but unless someone sleeps with me I don't know if its worked. anyone else feel the same?
Hi Northern lass,
My missus took tape recordings of me to prove I snored, and believe me, if it was an Olympic event, then I would be favourite for Gold at London 2012. Could you get someone to record you, or even better, if you are worried then take an Epworth sleep test. Do you feel tired all the time, drop off to sleep when watching TV?
Get these things checked out ASAP.
