Get one of those eye covering masks that people use to sleep with that say ' I'm Awake ' or the ones that have the picture of 2 eye balls wide open on them. She'll never bother you again. Problem solved.

21- No dear. Your heart stopping in your sleep is a trip to DocBastard. Sleep apnea is when the airway in your throat is not fully open, causing you to lose oxygen. You gasp for air whilst you sleep and if severe enough, it will cause asphyxiation. That's why they wear masks on their faces. It pumps air into the throat. Loud snoring is a symptom. If you're going to scare someone, scare 'em right! ;)

No no, heart stopping in your sleep happens when KaySL loves you unconditionally.

A trip to DocBastard is much, much, MUCH worse. It involves slow, painful toture.

36, you don't know ANYTHING about op except that he snores and when he stops snoring, it worries his wife enough to wake him up.

If you TRULY are a physician assistant, then why don't you recognize the classic symptom of sleep apnea?

Yeah, but I think he would be happier if she had spent her nights sleeping rather than waking him.
My dad had the same problem, it passed when he bought a water-pillow. Maybe it's a clue...

It's not crazy at all.

Snoring is a sign of sleep apnea.

Op might have sleep apnea. When he stops snoring, that may be a sign that he stops breathing briefly. If that's the case, his wife is worried and is waking him up to ensure he's okay.

People with sleep apnea never know they have it. It takes someone else to notice something is wrong.

OP may or may not have sleep apnea, there's no way to diagnose that on the internet. But if he hasn't been checked for it, maybe he should. If he does have it, he can get a CPAP and if he doesn't, then his wife can relax and leave him alone. It's a win/win.

FWIW, my husband does have sleep apnea, and before he got diagnosed, I would wake up when the snoring stopped. You get so used to the sound, the lack of it is alarming. And I've had to wake him up after watching him not breathe for several seconds. It's much nicer now sleeping next to Darth Vader, because before it was like sleeping with the vacuum cleaner.
