First of all, I have to say that I hardly ever snore, but in the last few years I have had this happen to me more often.

I am sleeping, and while asleep I actually notice that I am snoring. Then shortly after I wake up. From this, I have been able to imitate quite well the times that I know, since I am aware enough to realize how my body snores.

Anybody else had this happen?  embarrassed

Sleep apnea?

Sorry, not so funny, but important to think about if your snoring wakes you up.

But that is part of why I find it so interesting to me. What wakes me up is when I become partly aware that I am snoring, and I start to pay attention to what is happening in my partly awoken state. And it does not happen in the middle of the night. It has only occurred when I am taking a nap or almost ready to wake up.

Thank you for your concern, however.

The same thing happens to me sometimes...but its weird, I can't really hear the snore, but I can feel that I'm doing it during sleeping, and then I wake up shortly after...doesnt bother me all that much since it doesnt happen terribly often...

Right! But I can actually partly hear the snore. Heard it a little bit last night when I took a nap.

No, sleep apnea is not funny, especially since it has killed people. Most notably, the great D-linesman Reggie White...

I can relate to that. The same happens to me, particularly if I am only napping during a night on call.

Basically, when we sleep we go through several cycles (sleep architecture) which vary from deep sleep to REM sleep to non-REM sleep. in some of the more superficial cycles, the transition sometimes is not so "well accomplished", particularly if we are not actually resting (tense sleep, like when you have to wake up soon thereafter). What follows is that your musculature is abnormally relaxed, particularly the pharyngeal muscles, while you are already on the transition to consciousness, hence you can hear yourself snoring.

This is indeed a sign of a non-fullfilling sleep. If it happens only during a nap, no problem. If indeed it happens at night, you might be having some trouble getting adequate sleep. A night on a sleep laboratory might help solve the problem.

For me, I just pass out when I get home... for 20 hours non-stop sometimes!

No snoring, but I have been aware that I grind my teeth and chomp. Its my anti-teabagging defense. I wear a mouthpiece over my lower teeth that keeps me from wearing my teeth down. My grinding has contributed to vertigo and migrane headaches, which have just about stopped since I got the mouth guard.

I've also awakened while talking in my sleep, which is weird. In high school, I had a Soviet and Confederate battle flag tacked to my ceiling. I recall one morning where I woke during a conversation with the hammer and sickle.

It sometimes happens to me, too. I've never cared, but indeed it's weird.

Still sounds like sleep apnea. You are mostly never fully asleep.
