Grotius; As a nurse I have to second Chuckles' assertion that sleep apnea may be a concern for you. It is Very common among people who snore, and is linked to many other health concerns such as obesity, high blood presure, heart disease and stroke. These conditions may or not be caused by sleep apnea, but they seem to be greatly alleviated once treatment (generally CPAP or BIPAP) are instituted. The diagnosis is easily made with a sleep study usually lasting only one night, and I would highly recommend that you consult with your physician about this. If this turns out to be the case, both you and all who sleep in proximity to you will benefit from the easily tolerated treatment. You will soon be getting the best sleep of your life!
