Snoring treatments for people with epilepsy.
posted by anonymous to health & fitness (12 answers total)
I love my partner to bits, but his snoring is driving me crazy, and seriously impacting my ability to get a good night's sleep. (He has the wonderful ability to fall asleep at a moment's notice, in almost any situation - while I'm a spoiled sleeper who needs absolute silence and everything just right.) The trouble is, he has MS and a form of epilepsy that prevents him from taking over-the-counter snoring treatments - they all contain a chemical that, he knows from past experience, interacts with his epilepsy in bad ways.
So what to do? Earplugs don't offer too much help (my hearing is far more sensitive than I'd like, and the slightest noise - even heard through earplugs - can keep me from falling asleep), and I can't think of any alternative but sleeping in a separate room, which would be unpleasant and heartbreaking for both of us... but I'm tired of being so tired, having to stay awake until I'm about to pass out before I can fall asleep, then waking up several hours too soon, all because of his snoring. Thanks for any help...
