R/O OSA: OSA can be suggested by history and physical. Excess snoring/daytime sleepiness/apneic episodes/ aM headaches. And the Exam obesity/small oral airway/collar size>18. The definitive test is a PSG with split night/CPAP titration. I would request copy of sleep study and get a second opinion if you are not satisfied with the options. You are young CPAP can be difficult to tolerate. ENT FOR UPP EVAL.

A few weeks ago my husband started snoring all the time. Is there anything we can do about it?

Yes: It's possible that he has nasal congestion at night forcing him to be a mouth breather when he sleeps. This can lead to snoring. The nasal congestion can be due to allergies or a recent cold. Have your husband try otc decongestant nasal sprays and/or breathe right strips for several nights. If this doesn't work or he has pauses in his breathing, you should see an ent.

Sleep study: Consider a sleep study to determine if you have just run-of-the-mill snoring or something more serious called sleep apnea. If so, you may benefit from a CPAP machine to improve your airflow, or as a second choice, a dental appliance from your dentist. It can often cure the snoring in a non-surgical way.

Give him a nudge: If he snores softly, intermittantly, and purrs quietly, he may only need a nudge to sleep on his side. But, if he is a loud or robust snorer, and especially if your hear him choke, gasp, or stop breathing, make sure he is seen for a sleep study. He may have sleep apnea which can contribute to serious health issues. Discuss this with your md. A CPAP machine or an oral appliance may be the answer.

Yes: For some people losing weight and sleeping on ones side can help snoring. If this doesn't work, see a dentist who is trained in dental sleep medicine. There are several oral appliances that can be made to successfully help snoring stop. Usually a sleep study is necessary first to eliminate sleep apnea, a serious health problem. One doesn't want to create a sleep apneic who doesn't snore.
