In The Roanoke Times, a reader thanks a physician-columnist for advice regarding her husband’s snoring.
When I came to you three years ago, I was sure the reason I was so tired all day was that I had sleep apnea. But, no, you figured out that the reason I wanted to sleep all the time was that my husband’s snoring was keeping me up and that he may have had the sleep apnea! When his doctor sent him to sleep specialists, the test showed he actually stopped breathing almost 300 times in one night. I have to say that you were not the most popular guy in our house until my husband got used to the mask. But he did and he feels great, sleeps like a baby now and so do I.
