My other half complains that i wake him up in the night.
Its not so much my snoring that only happens if i lie on my back and stops if i roll on to my side, but he reckons i breathe noisily, and that sometimes its like i've held my breath and then i breathe out my mouth loudly. It has caused problems sometimes when we haven't got a proper nights sleep due to my noises and then him waking me up.
I'd read about sleep apnea which sounds similar but usually it wakes the person up which doesn't seem to happen with me(the only think that wakes me up is the other half telling me to stop snoring), i think i sleep pretty well and can only remember a few times when i've woken myself up breathing out like that, these times its just been when i've been just drifting off to sleep.
Also i seem to get more complaints when i've got a cold or often if i've been out for a good run in the cold that day. I tend to have a bit of a stuffy nose in the mornings and quite alot of the time.
If it is sleep apnea is there anything that can be done about it ? I heard that being overweight can cause it, i'm 30 year old 5ft 8.5 inches, just under 13 stone (which is probably about at least a stone too heavy), is that enough overweight to make a difference ?
Any advice from forum docs or anyone else who's had similar problems.
