    Yes,
    I do understand your feeling, I will tell you something’s which you need to make sure that you husband listen to you.

    Weight lose :
    Make sure you husband works out at least 30 mins in a day, a slight loss of excess weight will help relieve constriction of your throat.

    Avoid alcohol and smoking:
    Ask him to quit smoking, Smoking worsens obstructive sleep apnea.

    Sleep on your side:
    Sleeping on your back can cause your tongue and soft palate to rest against the back of your throat and block your airway. To prevent sleeping on your back, try sewing a tennis ball in the back of your pajama top.

    hi diya

    ==========================================================================

    sleep apnea is a medical diagnosis but snoring is jus a symptom ...

    sleep apnea depends on many things which we diagnosis after examing patient fully ...

    snoring occurs because of obstruction of reapiratory tract from nose to lower respiratory tract ..can be many causes like obesity , deviated nasal symptom etc ...

    if obstruction is very severe n for longer periods like months n years its start causing serious problems like patient will be sleepy n irritated in day time because of lack of good sleep in night - due to increased co2 in body it affects lungs then heart , later kidney etc .. but its after longer periods not in days or weeks ...

    so its very long process ...

    but for simple snoring u can try to make him sleep in lateral posture ..and if severe snoring u feeling then consult doctor once ....

    so we cant say snoring = sleep apnea [ its a medical term ] ..

    hope im clear ... actually type very long msg before this but suddenly got logged out n now couldnt type in much detail again its very tiring n doctors are not much comfortable n habitual with computers..

    if its not clear then ask specifically ... n ya because of less time im not able to follow my posts regularly in time so if anything urgent for anyone plz msg in private or mail me at rajiv8202@yahoo.com ..that will be easier for me .. as i dnt know how to follow thread easily ...
