Default Snoring when awake!

Has anybody been accused of snoring while being awake? My girlfriend yells at me all the time for it. I don't hear myself snore. Do you think the noise emitted is 180 degrees out of phase by the time it reaches my ear to canceled out with the internal noise?

Perhaps you are unaware that you have fallen asleep, even momentarily.

I think it can be called narcolepsy

(Of course, you are leaving yourself open to a lot of comment from some quarters!
eg some women like to talk after, even if it is only to say goodnight.)

Are you a mouthbreather? That can lead to excessive dryness of the mouth which can in turn contribute to gingival/periodontal disease.

I have done it on occasion, usualy being very tired, and just drifting off in semi sleep... does not feel like I'm sleeping, but lights are pretty much out... most embarasing, I was watcing a late night movie with some friends, and suddenly thought the sound was comming from one of the guys... so I told him to stop... at which point I found out it was me...

Nico, That's embarrassing.

Try taking the new helmet off and maybe you will breathe easier and notice more when the lights go out.

I can't imagine what to even do about it! There are "Sleep Disorder" specialists.

Sometimes after work, I used to pass out on the train. I can only imagine what I did to the other passengers! But at least I was asleep! (like that makes it better) LOL

If Wile E. Coyote had enough money to buy all that ACME ****, why didn't he just buy dinner?

I have done it many times. Happens when I am very tired. Quiet snore, not like when asleep.

I don't know guys. Its very weird. I can tell by her body language in bed, figiting and stuff, that she is mad because I was snoring, but I know I am awake because I am aware of this and the sounds around me, I just don't here any snoring.
