   I'm a fairly healthy guy (170 lbs, 6' tall, cholesterol under 150,
good blood pressure [thank to years of donating platelets before the
blood banks kicked out most long-stay European travelers!]), and I go to
the doctor...maybe anually. So do you just ask your GP about this? And
get, what, a referral to someone else?
   For kicks, I had a physical done in February. It had been several
years, so I figured I ought to get checked out. He said there was
nothing to do about my snoring except see an ear/nose/throat specialist.
   To be honest, I feel OK (as long as I have my coffee -- sweet,
blessed beans), and only my wife suffers. :7) During allergy season I
eat OTC  drugs, and get along all right. Are there life-threatening
aspects to this disorder?
P.S. Moving to Geeks; I am still interested in this!
