How can you sleep through loud noises?

Good question: I live near an airport and wear earplugs at night because I am sensitive to the noise. It helps to some degree. There are machines that produce white noise that may help or make your own (turn on a fan, listen to music). Make sure you are nice and relaxed before getting into bed. Take a bath, drink some sleepytime tea and try to take your focus away from the noise and count those sheep! ...Read more

Snoring Cures: I have a very busy practice which addresses snoring and sleep apnea. I would say that you should have obstructive sleep apnea ruled out prior to just addressing the snoring. If you just have a snoring issue the combination of the pillar procedure and/or a mandibular repositioning appliance has over a 90% satisfaction rate. Other options are available for osa. ...Read more

Consult your doctor and make a plan to correct this problem. Good luck ...Read more

I have a loud snoring every night, I failed sleep apnea test! What is the medicine?

I have a loud snoring every night, I failed sleep apnea test! What is the medicine?

CPAP: You are describing a diagnosis of sleep apnea. Snoring is a sign that your airways are collapsing when you go to sleep, so you cannot get air to your lungs even when you try. The best fix is to apply pressure thru a mask, to keep the airways open so you can breathe. This is called cpap. Weight loss, oral appliances, and surgery are adjunctive options. ...Read more

My 3 months old baby cries out loud every day at night only before going to sleep all day he is active and feeds well what could be reason?

My 3 months old baby cries out loud every day at night only before going to sleep all day he is active and feeds well what could be reason?

Fatigue, anxiety: Babies at 3 months do get tired but do not understand the concept of sleep. They have enough memory to handle their wakeful periods, but really just pause between them. They do not seek or understand sleep until into their 2nd year. An illness or food reaction would cause fussiness all the time. This often improves as they pas 4-5 months and can roll over and entertain themselves more than they settle. ...Read more

Is it safe for my teenager to sleep with loud music on his headphones? And its not the soft music that a parent would like them to listen to!

Is it safe for my teenager to sleep with loud music on his headphones? And its not the soft music that a parent would like them to listen to!

No: Anytime a teen listens to hard loud music thru headsets may lead to hearing loss. Plus listening to music with words or tv keeps the brain stimulated as hearing never quits processing. Try substituting a sleep sound machine as many of us sleep better with constant droning. Like any bad habit be prepared for resistance! Teens never think bad things will happen. Be patient but firm on your request. ...Read more
