Maybe I missed it, but in which position do you sleep? I'm guessing a back sleeper.


Do you sleep any better (and without snoring) if you're on your side?

I usually only sleep on my side if my back hurts, but if I sleep on one side, I have to switch sides after a while because it gets uncomfortable, so I would be waking up multiple times to change positions. I don't know if I snore or not on my side.

I sleep exclusively on my side. Yes, I change position every few hours, but I go right back to sleep, and it doesn't affect my sleep quality (unless it's a night I simply don't sleep well). I also don't snore while on my side, and my mouth usually remains closed.

On the rare occasion I fall asleep on my back, within an hour I wake up snoring. It seems people who sleep on their backs tend to have snoring or sleep apnea problems, so that's just something to think about, even though I recognize there are just some positions in which people cannot sleep very well (for me, it's on my back).

Just some thoughts for you.

CPAPs force dry air into the lungs. My mother almost died from a lung infection caused by a CPAP machine. No thanks. I might get a sleep study just to see the results, but no machine for me.


Most CPAP machines have built in humidifiers . That is the main reason how they work....

Congrats on taking steps to improve your health!!!

I developed mouth breathing recently....and did some research...and NO...not doing that mask thing....I cannot imagine being able to sleep with that contraption!

Read about mouth taping....and decided it was too scary to even try, even if it works....I sometimes get nasal congestion at night.

I went and did further reading on pillows....and found a memory foam wedge pillow, I place it under a soft regular pillow...and it 95% gets rid of the mouth breathing.

ETA
I sleep on my side....and still mouth breathe.....well, before the pillow anyway.

Glad the pillow helped. I might try it so I can transition off of taping.

Good luck!

FWIW, the pillow also helps with quality of sleep.

I just ordered one of the straps to go around the head. The mouth guard gave me blisters.

Let us know how that works.....it looks like it would keep one awake....not to mention rather warm in summer.

I read this thread with interest last night, especially as my girlfriend says I snore like a tractor. I did lose a tone of weight and it stopped a while back, put a little back on and it's back. That's easily sorted.

As for the taping, I'm a bit bunged up at the moment with whatever it is hitting the UK at the moment, so didn't fancy taping my mouth shut and dieing in the night....so instead I made a massive effort to just close my mouth shut and nose breath as I tell asleep....and my girlfriend said she didn't hear me snore once.

Will try it again tonight.

Cheers for the info.

CX.

Oh my!
Thanks for sharing!

I got this peculiar thingie between my legs.

They say all men have it, but I don't believe it for a second.
(Dudes, seriously, we all have this?)

But, will give your remedy a try.

Us, and them?
Behind the facade, we're just ordinary men?

Not a chance.

It should be coming in the mail tomorrow. I will post another update in this thread as to how it goes.
