I'd love to know how many of you have people that said you snore during the night. Thankfully I don't but some people say I sleep mouth open when I'm really tired and fall asleep in a public place.

I personally love seeing people sleeping mouth open. Its funny. look the picture below that I took of some guy in a train w my phone

I have been told I snore. When I'm asleep and not snoring I've been told I have conversations with imaginary people. I would love to tape myself some night and see what goes on.

You beat me to it James!

But... My ex-girlfriend informed me that I do snore from time to time!

Oh you mean like if you have an annoying penchant for creating 3-4 useless threads/day? Man...glad I don't know anyone with that problem!

And yes, I do snore..somehow I know better than to snore in public, or sleeping upright clears my airway enough that I don't snore on planes/busses/cars, but do snore when I lay down.

Yes to both. My girlfriend won't even sleep in the same room as me when she's over at my place. According to her she can't get a wink of sleep due to my loud snoring, as well as always worrying when I stop breathing every few minutes.

Euclid, it sounds like you have sleep apnea. I was diagnosed with it and now use a CPAP machine when I sleep. It has worked wonders. I'm no longer tired or cranky all day. You should probably go see your doctor, because sleep apnea over the long term can actually cause some very severe health problems.

Hmmm.....I have been told that I snore while sleeping! But it depends on what position I'm sleeping in.... zzz  Thank God I don't talk while I sleep (that I know of) I might spill the beans and mention some of my secrets!!

One female I know of who does snore in her sleep...is my dog!!!  rotfl

Thanks for your concern! Yes, I know that I do have sleep apnea, as does my dad and brother, but unfortunately, not having medical aid benefits (I work for myself and as I am just starting up my business) I cannot afford to spend money on doctors at this stage unless something serious happens, like my appendix bursting a year or two ago.  ouch

I am told that I snore, but what is worse apparently, is that when disturbed I have a tendency to sit up and start yelling at people in gibberish, or yelling random words, the last one I seemed to yell was "Texas." I know that eventually I will be one of the worst snorers in the world as I have been told I have airway issues and since both my father and grandfather snore so loudly that you could hear them clearly from opposite ends of our 6,000 sq. ft. house.

Both. I snore like a broken machine, so loud that sometimes I wake up myself.
Open mouth: if the t-shirt that I use at night, is wet [of saliva] the day after, I think is an evidence of that.

It's not that bad Euclid. The polisomnogram and CPAP titration costs around R2200.00. The machine itself is about R4000-5000. Come to Bloemfontein and we will help you, Freestate style.

I understand your financial situation, but for that "feeble" amount of money you can't gamble with your health. The short-and longterm effects of sleep apnea are actually astounding and really not something to play with. We always have a tendency to think that we are still young and that conditions like heart attacks (elevated risk for patients with sleep apnea) are an "old persons disease". Believe me, it's not - my 25 year old sister lost a high school class friend just last week to a heart attack.

Please don't take this the wrong way, just trying to help.  Smile

snore sometimes, don't sleep with my mouth open....another thing I do in my sleep is talk a lot AND fight. Not too long ago I threw someone off my bed while I was sleeping...worse thing about it is that I didn't know I did it until I was told the next morning by the person...LOL

I'm just curious, but isn't it pupil(sp?) movements a voluntary action? I mean all the things you do while sleeping are involuntary.

I've heard dolphins sleep with an eye always open, whilst horses always sleep standing up (weird?).

Btw I sleep perfectly normal, but I can't be close to a snoring person. Only sleeping-deal is that I roll from one side to another in my bed all night long. However, I need to hug something to sleep well, both in my arms and in between my knees, so I need like 5 pillows to sleep. It'll take me like 2 hours to fall asleep if I don't have them, and I don't rest as well...

PA: Is your CPAP a full face, or one of the newer masks?

I'm glad that you brought this up. I've been diagnosed with apnea, but being a medical professional (RN), we're the last to change and listen to our own advice. Did it really help with the tired/crankiness? I think that is one of my worst attributes from this whole mess (other than pissing off people in the room with me). My biggest reluctance has been the thought of sleeping with something on my face. I don't know if I could get used to that.



We can agree to disagree.

Thanks SA7700. I will go speak to my doctor and hear how he can help me. The prices you quote are not at all that bad. Normally in SA you expect nedical stuff to run into the tens of thousands of rands. Maybe Andz will even organize discount for me if I buy one of those machines from his company!  biggrin

No problem whatsoever. I always appreciate help and advice. I unfortunately don't get to go to Bloemfontein a lot (maybe once a year or so) but I'll send you a mail if and when I go down there again so I can buy you a drink or two.
