I have recently been diagnosed wih sleep apnea. I have told gp,s about my snoring for years and the best advise was to sleep in a separate room from my husband!
Luckily I now have a great gp who recommended me for treatment. Ok, so it means wearing a face mask at night to blow air to keep my airway open, but the dreaded snoring has stopped, hooray, now I can go visiting family and friends with out having to apologise for the racket each night.
The plus side is I now wake up refreshed and ready to face the day, rather than slump for and hour trying to come to. I now have the incentive and energy to exercise and diet. I can't believe the positive effect a simple diagnosis has made to my life.
