Not so simple, but: Main neurotransmitters for behaviour and mood are norepinephrine and serotonin, but dopamine does play a role in all of this, but much more complex than just simple few chemicals.

A 45-year-old member asked:

Is it common for sinus congestion to cause a decrease in appetite?

1 doctor answer2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Bernstein Joel

First, diagnosis: Sinus congestion is not as easy to diagnose by the patient as one might think. You may really have nasal congestion. And most causes of nasal congestion are viral infections. Therefore, it is very likely that the overall symptoms of a viral infection may lead to a decrease in appetite. The course of these infections is 7-10 days. If longer, consult you physician.

Sleep Apnea: Snoring can be a sign that you have sleep apnea. This will cause you to have periods during sleep when you stop breathing following by a recovery phase after your brain "wakes up". The headaches upon waking up are a sign that you are retaining carbon dioxide. Treatment is available and will allow you to obtain a restful sleep without the headaches.

Obesity can cause the same symptoms. The sleep apnea usually improves with significant weight loss. have your doctor refer you to a pulmonary medicine soecialist for a sleep study immediately and weight loss specialist if necessary.
