Rhinitis: It sounds like you may have a component of rhinitis (congested nasal mucosa) and/or sinusitis. Lying down usually makes this worse. A decongestant like pseudoephedrine, especially when combined with a non-sedating anti-histamine (like cetirizine) is often very helpful. Also propping up your head on 2 pillows can help. Dust and allergies make it worse so meticulously clean your sleeping area.
