A bit of background: I was diagnosed with GBS in Nov 2013 and have recovered by about 85%. I was completely paralyzed requiring ICU and two courses of IVIG. I still have some issues with numbness and nerve pain in my lower limbs and feet, hands and right lower face but the biggest thing is the fatigue. I don't sleep well, sometimes taking hours to fall asleep. I often wake tired in the morning and tire easily with activities during the day.
Ever since I was first in hospital with GBS I have snored though not before then. I didn't think much of it and my husband never said anything but a few months ago I went away with my daughter for the weekend and we had to share a room. She complained bitterly that I kept her awake all night. Again I didn't think much of it.
While chatting with my GP about my fatigue levels I mentioned this to her. With all the hype in the media about snoring and fatigue levels she decided to do sleep studies saying there was a chance the GBS may have affected the way the muscles work in my throat etc . It turns out I have severe obstructive sleep apnea in all sleeping positions and actually stop breathing and wake up to 108 times an hour! They are going to try me with a CPAP machine to see if that helps.
I am not sure if this will completely solve the fatigue issues but sure hope it helps. I was wondering if anyone else has had trouble with snoring after getting GBS. If they have tried a CPAP and if it has helped to reduce the fatigue.
