Snoring is more than just a little annoying. It can lead to sleep deprivation for anyone who is unlucky enough to try to sleep near the snorer. I live with someone who snores and his overnight racket causes me to be exhausted and just plain irritated with him during our waking hours. It becomes difficult to focus on work, my patience is lowered and I am desperate to find a cure!

My husband has had a sleep study that said he does not have sleep apnea, but I think it may be time to do another one. His snoring has increased in volume and consistency over the years and an anesthesiologist recently told him he must have sleep apnea. I think I would be happy with a diagnosis, because then we could work on a solution. Many people who snore can attribute it to sleep apnea, and 75% of their spouses have sought out a solution to the snoring.

This video demonstrates exactly how I feel after a night of listening to my husband snore.

Up to 90% of people with sleep apnea are undiagnosed. There are treatments available to help people with sleep apnea get a good night’s sleep, and their spouses too.  A proper diagnosis can not only improve sleep for their spouses, but also for the people living with sleep apnea. My husband often feels like he’s had little sleep through the night, even though I can guarantee he was not awake. I wonder if his own snoring wakes him up!

If you are living with someone who snores, be sure to take the quiz to see if the cause may be sleep apnea. That could be the first step in improving your quality of sleep.
