Question about Cell Phones
Well this isn't a cell phone question, but I have a solution anyway.
Short answer is that you have allergies. The clicking you hear is from your eustation tubes. They allow the pressure in the middle ear, behind the ear drum to equalize with atmospheric pressure and prevent damage to the ear drum. They also drain mucus from the middle ear. Allergies and sinus infections can cause the tissue and glands around or near the tubes to become inflamed and put pressure on, or block the tubes. The clicking you are hearing is the tubes opening and letting mucus drain. You can reduce the pressure being put on them by taking Ibuprofen. Pseudoephedrine also helps, but will keep you up at night. You can reduce your allergies, and thus the inflammation effecting the tubes with an antihistamine. Claritin, Zyrtec,or Allegra are antihistamines that should not cause drowsiness. All can be purchased over the counter, and have generics. You can also take Benadryl (Diphenhydramine), but it WILL cause drowsiness. You might also talk to your doctor about nasal sprays for allergies. Another method of treating allergies is a sinus wash with a Neti pot. It is a great alternative to medications or used in conjunction with them. There are several options available under the NeilMed brand.
I have pretty bad seasonal allergies and fly for a living (they don't go together very well). I use one or more of the above non-drowsy antihistamines and a steroid nasal spray to treat cause of the allergies. I also take Ibuprofen 200mg-800mg, and Pseudoephedrine 30mg-60mg to treat the symptoms, like head ache, head pressure, and congestion. Along with occasional use of a sinus wash. This is what works for me, though you should consult with your doctor before taking any new medications that might interact with any current medications or health issues.

Being overweight is definitely a factor in snoring but there are many other reasons why people snore, such as; having a cold or any sinus issues, after drinking alcohol, allergies and even just from the anatomy of a person's mouth. If it's really bothering you, ask your husband to check with the doctor what might be causing it.
