I was told by my husband that I do this.

He woke me up last night and said to me, "What are you doing?" I said, "What are you talking about?" He didn't say anything to me until I had asked him this morning what he was talking about. He said, "What weren't you doing?".

He told me I gargle, wheeze and cough and snore at night and I was really going at it last night. All I can do is laugh but maybe something is wrong. I feel pretty good though. Guess I will discuss this with the doctor.

Hi Sam,

What a hoot! I guess we see a sleep evaluation in your future, eh?

Hi Sam,

Presumably your husband will tell you, if in the future you should decide to take up sleep walking! ;) :lol:

It's certainly worth mentioning your strange noises to your doctor on your next visit. :)

Hey Sam, we have a good section on sleep apnea if you need it.

My hubby and his dad both have always made enough racket at night to wake the dead. Before my hubby got his CPAP, it got so bad some nights that our old and slightly deaf dog would wake up with a start and proceed to bark! :lol: (She and I are both sleeping better at night now!)

Gargle as in choking maybe? Do you have the head of your bed elevated?
