I am a three year survivor of breast cancer. The main issue I had with Chemo was severe heartburn and neuropathy.I did not snore before Chemo. Now I snore all the time. Anyone else? Any ideas how to stop? Thank you for your input!
Interesting question, @kimkimball. I found this information on Cancer.net about sleep problems related to cancer treatment
– Sleeping Problems: Hypersomnia or Somnolence Syndrome or Nightmares https://www.cancer.net/navigating-cancer-care/side-effects/sleeping-problems-hypersomnia-or-somnolence-syndrome-or-nightmares
Snoring is mentioned in relation to sleep apnea. "Sleep apnea, which is a short pause or decrease in air flow while breathing during sleep. This can cause snoring."
Is your newly developed snoring an irregular snore where you sometimes stop breathing and then a big snore wakes you up? Have you noticed other sleep abnormalities or changes since chemo?
