Anyone started permanently snoring after starting to blast and cruise?

Yes I was tested for sleep apnea with a basic equipment test then a more detailed/expensive test and both showed no sleep apnea.

However it did show my excessive snoring was interrupting my sleep quite a lot. To the point of me feeling tired majority of the time etc as @Matt83 mentioned previously.

The hospital have suggested a mouth guard device to try. Which I will do but don't know how easy it'll be to sleep with this!

They can loan me a CPAP but cannot provide one permanent as I have not been diagnosed with clinical sleep apnea so would have to purchase myself.

Give the mouth guard a go but make sure it's one made for you not some s**t of Amazon. It will probably be more comfortable than CPAP therapy which is claustrophobic as hell and very difficult to get comfortable with. After 3 years it still does my head in!

Iv got a pretty badly deviated septum from scrapping when I was younger and popping my nose back in place (well, best I could anyway). They offered me surgery to correct it and improve my breathing but once they told me what was involved I really couldn't be bothered to go through all that.

I put off my surgery for over a year and honestly it's really not bad at all... I woke up and was immediately able to breathe more easily.

I had the op around 6 weeks ago. 

Deviated septum, FESS and sinus drain. 

The op was fine and pretty painless. 

Unfortunately it's not made any difference for me :huh:

Really, dont say that lol

i now snore (never used to) and it’s got to the point I’d say 50% of the time I wake up and my wife is in the spare room. That might sound great to some but I actually like me wife and am only 38 (in a few weeks) so a bit early imo to be sleeping in separate  rooms. I’ve always had problems with breathing through my nose but never snores like I do now.

i went doctors few weeks back and I too have a deviated septum but can only see so far/much with a torch up my nose. He’s wrote me a referral letter and I have an appointment with a Bupa specialist next week

as @Matt83 says , if you can get away with a mouthpiece then use it  , that said if you have done the sleep study and it shows no sleep apnea then there should be no need for one , some machines can actually be dangerous and put stress on your heart if not set up correctly or not needed.

 i was diagnosed with central sleep apnea earlier this year @ 50+ time per hr stopping breathing , i hate the machines and cannot get used to them (have tried CPAP and Bipap ) have been  told to try an ASV machine but i need an echo cardiogram to check my heart before i can get one.

I don't think I have sleep apnoea as I never struggle to breath, I sleep fine and I'm never tired even though I sleep around 6 hours most nights.

My mate has it big time and uses a CPAP machine, but he's really overweight.

I did some simple tests and it looks like I'm a tongue snorer. Typical, it looks like the peds have only made my f*cking tongue bigger. :lol:

I'm getting a mouth piece today that extends your jaw to keep your tongue out of your throat so I will see if it makes any difference.

F*ck me, since going to the dark side I've developed restless leg syndrome, grinding my teeth and snoring, all while I'm sleeping.

Similar situation mate, struggled for ever and my nostrils collapse when I breath in quite hard. 

Have private medical also and had a camera stuck up there and then a CT scan. 

It's not made a single bit of difference in all honesty. 

 

Not to say yours won't be successful mate. 

I sound like Darth Vader sometimes when I'm just sitting around without even realising it :rage:

Same mate, 20 years of heavy ass lifting and using gear and it may have made me 6.5ft, 22st beast .... but I'm a broken one!

Sleep apnea, bad knees, degenerative disc disease and now they tell me iv got osteoarthritis in my spine .... I'm 38 for f**k sake!

I've never snored in my life but as soon as I started blasting and cruising I've started permanently snoring. It's driving the wife mad and she's now sleeping in one of the spare rooms.

I've had to order some hannibal looking contraption to see if it will help but otherwise I'm not sure how to solve this.

I B&C and I have no snoring issues

BUT

I do snore like a motherfucker

1. If I am too drunk 

2. If I am on a silly stupidly high dosage or stacking too many things 

3. If I am extremely tired but really tired

1 and 2 don't worry me anymore as I don't get wasted anymore and I do blasts that for most are moderate dosages

3 happens sometimes but I think is for most of us.

From what iv heard these surgeries are pretty tough and have a low success rate. Even the ones that do succeed tend to get tissue regrowth later on down the line so they just seem a waste of time.

Good luck with your results!

Just got my results.

Got a score of 22, and got an appointment to go back next month for the machine (T)

Well done, I guess?!

Least it’s the first step in getting the problem treated. Cpap really does make a big difference! Make sure they give you a machine with a humidifier (tell them dry air like air conditioning really makes you feel ill) as using cpap without one will dry you out and make you feel rough. Also invest in padding for the strap as they tend to be uncomfortable without padding and mark your face. I bought a very good pad from a company called Resplabs which makes wearing the head strap so much more comfortable.

if you need any more advice (stop the pipe wrapping you up in your sleep, mask liners, etc) shoot me a message.

I've been using one unscripted for a year mate.

Got a Resmid Airsense 10 auto cpap with humidifier, but never been test up correctly.

Hoping will get a decent machine or I'll just put the correct pressure in mine.

 

Hoping I get a decent one and it helps so I can sell mine and put it towards a nice tattoo :).

The Resmed Airsense is the top of the range model which I doubt the NHS will be giving out to people. I got a Resmed S9 plus humidifier attachment which is the model before the Airsense and is pretty much the same apart from the Airsense looks cooler and is a bit more compact. Having said that the S9 has been discontinued now so unless they have surplus stock (NHS bulk buys them directly from manufacturers ) you may get a new Airsense.

Iv heard the NHS can be funny about treating people who use their own machines (possibly an insurance issue?) so guess you’ll just have to see what they say.

Thanks pal.

Hmmm will have to wait and see.

 

2 questions pal;

- Do you think is matters what water you will the humidifier with?
I've always just used tap water (When I remember to refill it, I've had half a thought if you could add something benefit in it like GH haha)

- ClimateLine heated tubes, Is it worth getting one?
(I don't have one at the moment, and are £110 on Amazon)

Hmm don’t think GH works like that bud lol. Yes tap waters fine but try to put fresh in every night and disinfect the tank and couple times a week.

Buy it from the Resmed site, hell of a lot cheaper. I don’t use one and all they do it stop water condensing in the pipe which can then drip through the mask on to you (rainout). You can avoid this by just not setting humidity stupidly high, have the machine lower than your body and by buying a cheap cpap tube cover to help warm the pipe. The climate lines are over priced and don’t always work that well.

Thanks bud, got ao many questions to ask when I see the doctor.

My blood oxygen dropped to 93%, they said no need to worry as long as it's above 90% But.... Would I benefit from adding an oxygen supply for the higher oxygen levels going to the muscles!

I've read of someone adding a cbd vape to a oxgyen in-let. He basically says he sets he's vape on a timer, and for a short period of time he gets "baked".

Though I've never taken any recy drugs, smoked or vaped, still an interesting idea.

i would not spend money buying anything until you have tried the CPAP  -  theres a very high dropout rate for people using them.

as for the humidifier , i was told to use boiled water .

* a score of 22 is not that bad tbh and classed as 'moderate' , mine was 52 and i have a friend who was over 100 .

  • None/Minimal: AHI < 5 per hour
  • Mild: AHI ≥ 5, but < 15 per hour
  • Moderate: AHI ≥ 15, but < 30 per hour
  • Severe: AHI ≥ 30 per hour

Your oxygen level is fine, don’t go over thinking this buddy, plus compressed oxygen cylinders are not something you should go fu**ing about with. 

I tried cbd oil for my bad back, total waste of time and I think it’s just a marketing gimmick. Think it needs to be thc/cbd combo to get benefit and I can’t stand weed.

Just see how you get on with a properly setup cpap machine first.

Well my mouthpiece contraption came and I've tried it for a couple of nights, but it felt like the thing was going to break my jaw and teeth off. Agonising. 

So I remoulded it and adjusted it to its lowest setting and slept with it the whole night long last night. My snoring has completely stopped. For the first time in months I woke up next to the wife, and I actually had a decent night's sleep since she didn't wake me up every 5 minutes.

For anyone else who has this problem it's £20 well worth spending, even just to try it out.

My ex had the op for a deviated septum because she was suffering from congestion headaches constantly.

Was fu**ing barbaric - basically drilled a new nasal passage for her.  Recovery was pretty brutal for her.

And it ultimately did f**k all.
