Why Does My Husband Snore All If A Sudden
Several thoughts: Several thoughts, recent weight gain, worsening nasal obstruction, recent cold or flu. Snoring occurs when something between the lips/nostrils and the windpipe interferes with air flow. If your husband never snored before and is now that something should be evaluated. He can try a breathe-right strip and see if it helps. If it does it probably is his nose. An ENT doctor can easily evaluate him.See 1 more doctor answer
Sleep specialist: Snoring can make relationships stressful, but snoring can also be the first sign of sleep apnea, a much more serious health problem. Many treatment options are available for snoring and sleep apnea. The recommended therapy for sleep apnea depends on its severity, which is usually determined by a sleep study or examination.See 1 more doctor answer
Simple things: You can try simple things like sleeping on his side (they sell sleeping shirts with tennis balls on the back), avoid alcohol and sedative near bedtime, and lose weight. If he is a robust snorer, he may have a condition called sleep apnea, which can be much more serious. Speak to your physician about arranging a sleep study to determine this.See 1 more doctor answer
Non medical tx: There are alternatives to medical treatment of snoring. You can try having your husband sleep on his side or stomach. This may decrease his snoring. Make sure he doesn't have any alcohol or take any sleep medicine prior to bed. While these can help you fall asleep, it relaxes your airway too much and causes snoring. Breathe-right strips help decrease nasal congestion and subsequently snoring.See 2 more doctor answers
Help! My husband snores super loud! Is there anything, med or a trick that can make him stop snoring?
Sleep Study: He may have sleep apnea - a condition that can effect his wellbeing if he is not breathing well at night. Get a sleep study to rule this out. Yes - there are some common procedures that can help with snoring. They usually involve improving the anatomy of the nose or the soft palate (back part of the roof of the mouth).

My husband wakes me up snoring and gasping for air at night? He is a extremely deep sleeper. Is this something we should be concerned about?
Yes: Snoring and gasping for air at night are symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea. Left untreated it is related to a number of health issues as well as accidents. He should see his physician soon. If he has sleep apnea, he has more choices for treatment than just a cpap. Many patients are not being told that if they have mild-moderate sleep apnea, first line of treatment can be an oral appliance.See 1 more doctor answer
What could cause someone to suddenly start snoring? My husband used to rarely snore, but over the last few months, he’s started snoring really loud almost every night. What could have caused this?
There: There are a few things to consider. - weight gain can increase the risk for snoring and sleep apnea. Simply getting at weight and comparing it to a year ago will give you an idea on this. - he might have developed nasal allergies that contribute to nasal congestion and upper airway narrowing. Loud snoring can be a presenting sign for sleep apnea. I recommend that he discuss this with his primary care physician to see if he needs further evaluation with a sleep study to look for sleep apnea.See 2 more doctor answers
4 main reasons: There are 4 predisposing factors for snoring: 1) being human 2) being male 3) overweight 4) nasal congestion apparently, there is nothing to be done about 1 and 2, so you need to concentrate on 3 and 4. You also need to consider the possibility that you are not dealing with simple snoring but snoring as a symptom of sleep apnea. Overall, snoring is not a laughing matter. I would take it seriously.See 2 more doctor answers

Depending on the cause there are treatments that range from, reducing the soft palate tissue (surgucally/with laser), a CPAP device, or even a dental mouth piece that can reposition the jaw.

Recent snoring: If your husband has never snored or snored "lightly" and is now constantly snoring or it has suddenly gotten worse... I would get this checked asap.

If there are otherwise no nasal symptoms... Get this checked by a lcoal ent.See 2 more doctor answers
