Clicking Noise While Sleeping

Posted by Sleepless in Tulsa on August 19, 2003 at 13:18:36:

Asking for serious help here - my boyfriend makes a clicking noise while sleeping. It somehow relates to his moving his tongue and clicking the top of his mouth or something. When I try to replicate it myself, I can't do it. He has always done it from what I understand, but it is so frequent. It is almost like he has a bit of apnea, in the sense he will begin to snore, it will stop up his nose or mouth from breathing, and then he will begin clicking. He also sleeps entirely too much. When I get 10 or more hours of sleep, I feel horrible and my back aches. He can sleep from 10:00 at night to 3:00 in the afternoon daily if his schedule allowed. I tell him that the clicking disorder could definitely hinder his 'good' sleep at night, and it could be part of his constant state of being tired. I have looked for similar postings but to no avail. Please help, anyone. It has caused many arguments during the middle of the night. Now, we are both sleepless... Thank you.
