My boyfriend and I have been together the past 4 years. Over the last 2, he has gained a lot of weight and does no physical activity what-so-ever. I am 99% positive he has sleep apnea; when he sleeps he snores heavily and often stops breathing. I hear him all night and it worries me that hes not getting enough oxygen. When I confront him about it he immediately thinks I am attacking him about his weight. My question is though....The past few months he has been letting off some sort of stench. I go to class and come back and my room smells like death. I dont know how to describe the smell...but it is foul. I don't think it is what he eats or anything because it is the same smell every morning. At first I thought it was his breath but it consumes my entire room! Any ideas???
Yes, sometimes he even jumps right out of the shower and into bed. I know it isn't his clothes because his clothes are on my floor all day but my room only smells when he is sleeping. I read about halitosis; maybe he has bacteria in his throat and somehow when he snores (loudly and a LOT!) the smell projects into my room?? Thanks for your help!
Watch him when he sleeps. Is his mouth open alot? Does he complain about dry mouth, achy throat? A doctor visit would eliminate throat infection or just chronic inflammation leading to bad breath. Joan.
