- Wife Threatening To Make Me Sleep On My Own
My snoring is getting on my wife’s nerves. She’s a light sleeper and apparently my snoring is bad enough for her to consider that we should sleep in separate bedrooms. Now it’s not bad enough for me to need an operation or anything and the anti-snoring mouthguard I have is not very effective.
So does anybody have any experience with custom moulded earplugs – will they be any good for her in blocking out the noise I make.Posted 5 years agotheotherjonvSubscriber
What time is it?
OH, IT’S W*NK O CLOCK!!!!!
That’s no fun in separate beds. It’s far more entertaining trying to knock one out while she’s asleep next to you. Extra points if you can get your hand up her pyjama top at the same time without her noticing.Posted 5 years agoBenHouldsworthMember
Speak to your GP and see if he’ll refer you to a sleep clinic.
Does wife with say you ever sound like you’re choking or you stop breathing? You may have Sleep Apnea.
For mild snoring you can get Mandibular Advancement devices but the ones that work need to be custom made, usually by dentists, and cost hundreds.
Also do an online Epworth questionnaire, it’s usually the starting point for identifying sleep issues in most services.Posted 5 years agoacidchunksMember
Sounds very familiar! I snore, my missus is an insomniac. 🙁
She uses boots own brand boots wax earplugs, they’re not expensive but she says they’re the best she’s used.
If you smoke then think about stopping, or go electronic. It won’t get rid of the snoring but it could improve matters, certainly did for me!
oh and +1 for snore ring, actually works and that’s coming from a cynical ****. 30 quid may seem like a lot but they really are worth it.

Same problem here. Used to snore just when I’d been drinking, now almost all the time.
Have been trying a cheapo (nz$100) Mandibular Advancement thing called ZQuiet which seems to work well, but does have some slightly unsettling side-effects.
Basically, it makes me drool like an ageing DJ in a morgue, and it does cause some tooth pain. My lower teeth can be noticeably loose for an hour or so after I remove the device, which is a concern.

At least I’m not alone. So bit more insight. Have a mandibular advancement device – worked for a while and then didn’t seem to be effective. Don’t smoke or drink, not overweight. Don’t have sleep apnoea. I do sleep on my back though, mainly due to a dodgy shoulder. Will need to look at trying to sleep on my one good side.
May well try the snore ring.Posted 5 years agoeugeo81Member
I have the same problem.. My other half also wears earplugs due to my snoring. I went to doctors and hospital and had mine checked out with sleep tests etc. Consultant offered cutting tonsils and cutting my palette in my throat or something. But I gave that a body-swerve and Im a bit of a porker, but just finished my new bike build after a bit of a cycling sabbatical, so hopefully a bit of weight loss from me will help her get a better nights sleep 😆Posted 5 years agoMargeMember

My mrs has slept in ear plugs for years now.
No-one else ever complained about my snoring (from ex-GF’s through to mates) but it’s an issue for her.
It was worse before I shook off a few extra kilos
The ‘off-the-shelf’ ear plugs generally fix the issue but if I have a cold or blocked nose I am sometimes banished to the spare room (which actually has a nicer bed) 🙂
