Do You Snore Or Sleep Mouth Open?

Sat May 28, 2005 7:56 pm

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 don't know whether my mouth is open or closed while I'm asleep because I'm asleep.  Silly

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!

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!!

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.

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.

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.

My CPAP mask fits just over my nose and is secured with two straps. Before I tried it, I was firmly convinced I'd never be able to sleep with it. I've been using it for over a month now, and have absolutely no difficulty falling asleep. It has completely relieved the daytime drowsiness and/or crankiness. I'm no longer the crusty curmudgeon I used to be. (although you'd never be able to tell by some of my a.net posts)

Thanks a million for sharing your experience. It's been one of those things that I've been fighting for some self-conscious reason that I can't fully explain. Hell, I even know someone who magically lost about 85 lbs. practically overnight just by fixing their sleep habits with a CPAP. I know that I've been putting this off for too long, but thanks a bunch for bringing me one step closer to trying to fix this general malaise garbage!  Smile

The "thing" on my face at night was something that I always questioned, even though I've seen a huge amount of folks sleeping peacefully with one.

Hey folks,

I snore like a chainsaw and I used to drool like a St. Bernard dog. But once I was diagnosed with sleep apnea and started using CPAP,  wideeyed  I was suddenly more awake and refreshed than in years! I knew I was on a downward spiral of fatigue, mental fogginess and pain but I thought it was depression or some physical illness. Instead, most of my symptoms cleared up within the course of a few months. Not only that: I also am finally in remission from my depression.

It's all connected.

Get a good night's sleep.  Wink
Up, up and away!

i sleep with my mouth open when i am sleeping upright ie when i fall asleep in a plane before take off, or on a train.

in bed, mouth is closed i believe most of the time because i generally wake up breathing through my nose with my mouth closed.

my ex-bf had sleep apnea which is the WORST to sleep with someone who has that because he slept with his mouth open, but breathes through his nose. however since he had sleep apnea he would go up to 30 seconds without a breath then make this unholy sounds as he sucked in loads of air through his mouth, each time waking me up.
