Hi everyone, I'm new here, but was told to take a look at the site by my mum. I am now living in Mallorca most of the time but thought I'd post a message to see if anyone could come up with any ideas.
My snoring is soooooooo bad that I have had friends - in the past - threaten to cut my head off in the middle of the night!! My partner often has to get up in the night and go to sleep in another room. Approximately 9-10 years ago I went to a consultant in London about it and he told me (after sticking a camera up my nose and down part of my throat - nice!) that I had narrow tubes!!!! There was no operation and no cure for my snoring. I have had tests (about 9 years ago) for sleep apnoea, but was found not to have it. I wake up everyday feeling totally knackered and if I lie down for 5 minutes you can guarantee I will nod off without any problems. I wake myself up snoring often and lie there wondering what the strange noise was! My snoring has been worse in recent years as I put on a little weight but now I am losing that gradually. But I do remember 10 years ago I was a very fit and slim person!
Does anyone know of any recent developments for people with narrow breathing tubes?? very annoying and apparently hereditary - from my Dad I think, who used to snore horribly and had sleep apnoea.
