No: No, it is not. It may be allergies or other causes. Sometimes, anxiety patients can make a congested nose worse by blowing too hard. Be gentle as you blow your nose. See your doctor for a work up of nasal congestion.

THINK: Go for whats likely first. Cold, allergies, drugs - stuff like that. If it doesn't go away soon, ask yr dr. Most of my patients with gen anx disorder have never complained fo nasal congestion. Maybe they've been to busy worrying about things and feeling distressed. If that fits you check with a psychotherapist. Might help...
