If separate rooms are out of the question, invest in some very good ear plugs. Here's a link to the ones I use:

Highest Blocking Moldable Ear Plugs

They are a bit pricey, but well worth it.

Also look into possible health problems that may be causing the snoring such as respiratory, nasal, or other concerns. Good luck to you.

I hear you...my DH is healthy as a horse... snores like he is cutting wood all night. He likes to sleep on his back. Since I have ear plugs I sleep like a baby.

The first thing you should do is make sure he does not have a sleep disorder of some kind. Sleep apnea is characterized by heavy snoring, and breathing stopping for whatever length of time. If he does have sleep apnea he will need to get and use a CPAP machine, which will stop the snoring and assure he gets a continuous flow of air.

Get a sleep study done. CPAP is very effective in eliminating snoring & helps a lot in sleeping better, especially for people with severe sleep apnea.

According to sleep specialists, ALL snoring is abnormal unless you have a stuffy nose or deviated spetum. Obstructive sleep apnea is a dangerous condition leading to increased risk of heart problems and strokes. Get a sleep study done ASAP.

How and what kind of doctor do I look for to do the study.
And let me guess? Insurance doesn't pay???
I did see some medical procedure in a dr.'s office about putting
3 little staples into the roof of your mouth.
Looks painful. I will start to research sleep studies in my area..
So if the person gets a cpac is this forever?

Insurance does cover it. Ask your family doc for a referral. Some will order an overnight oximetry first. CPAP is forever unless yours is caused by obesity and you lise weight. About 20% of patients are not obese and need it firever.
