Toilet paper toothpick up the nose, theravent alternative

Post by Tricky » Sat Apr 01, 2017 6:15 pm

Thank you for this forum...

This is my first post, and any feedback is welcome..

My night noise seems to be a resonance in my sinus...

I side sleep with my mouth closed..

My weight is 165 lbs for my 5' 11inches..

I don't drink or smoke..

I found this cool Android app, snore lab, it records my sounds...

For me, it seems as I breath in, my sinuses rattle.

So I take toilet paper, and make little square pieces, about 1.5 inch x 2.5 inch... Then roll up the 2.5 length so you end up with a round 1.5inch rod of toilet paper, then I gently insert it up my nose šŸ¤£. To be clear, it really is like a toothpick. Only 1/16 inch, just a little restriction... Yes, it looks funny also... It sticks out about 1/4 inch, easy to remove in the morning...

My history.. tried the jaw things... I am sensitive to the taste of plastic, not good, and my snoring is not in my throat..

The theravent is ok, and it's hard for me to get to sleep with the big plastic covering my nose...

Ok, wishing you and your loved ones good peaceful sleep...

If it works for you that's fine. :)
I think I might be a bit reluctant to sleep with toilet paper up my nose!
I might wake up in the morning and wonder where it had gone! :shock:

Oh no, did I breathe it in? :lol:

Take care and welcome. :D

Ha, ha,

Yes I get funny looks when someone first sees my er night time, cold time, anti snore plug up...

Never had any struggles,

Only added it to your because it seems to help my sinus rattle. And the theravent stick on restrictor was plenty awkward..

Wish you all peaceful quiet sleepy time..

Blessings
