I'm into the second week of radiation treatment for my NPC. I notice my breathing that air exhaled out of my nose with some escaping through the mouth. This cause the mouth to be open at night to allow the air to escape. I noticed this cause my whole mouth and tongue to be dry. Had to wake up and drink water to wet. But the process repeated itself in an hour or two. Restless sleep as a result.
Does anyone have a solution to this? Is there any product where you can put in your mouth like an absorbing sponge that has Biotene like liquid that keep the mouth moist at night? Tonight I will try for the first time with mixing Biotene with water in a cup and put it next to me in bed. When the mouth gets dry and teeth ache, I will suck some up via straw then spit out into another cup to see that keep my mouth moist preventing teeth pain which could be teeth decaying due to radiation and dryness with air blowing at them?
If anyone has any other suggestions, please help.
