Please discuss this with the anesthesiologist who will be working with the baby. S/he will know more about the child's health and the type of anesthesia proposed. Take care. ...Read more
Can I have my ganglion cyst removal surgery tomorrow under general anasthesia if I have a stuffy nose?
Decongestants: Oral Pseudoephedrine is the most effective pill, but oral phenylephrine is the most available, because you do not have to have a driver's license handy to identify yourself when purchasing it. Both can disturb sleep. So at night a lot of people choose topical decongestants, for example afrin, (oxymetazoline) Vicks spray, 4-way spray, etc. Those sprays can be addicting. Spray antihistamines work well if allergic. ...Read more

Turbinate Tissue: When you lay down. Either on your back or side, the turbinates (tissue on the side of you your nose - inside) swells up. This is why people feel stuffy with allergies, crying, etc. Some people will notice that the feeling of stuffiness changes from side to side as they turn over in bed. If the stuffiness is severe, it could lead to nasal and then sinus congestion which may lead to a headache. ...Read more
Little noses: Lots of baby is folded into the womb. The short neck required to make them fit means their little nose will do extra work. The neck grows longer in the first months & baby will then drop the jaw to mouth breathe without tilting it back like newborns do to cry. Irritants like perfume & dust can make the nose swell inside and the mucous they make may rattle. Mouth breathing helps the stuffiness fade. ...Read more

If u don't take care of you're allergies, can it get worse and turn into a cold? Ex: don't use nettipot if u have a stuffy nose, etc.
Maybe: If you are talking about hay fever, then it is a potential yes. Studies have shown that allergic people, especially those with asthma, often have an impaired immune response to bacteria and viruses. However a more common problem would be sinus infections. As for netipot for a very stuffy nose, the issue is that not enough fluid can ever get into the nose. ...Read more

Had something weird happen today. I bent over and clear liquid poured out one side of my nose. I am not congested nor do I have a stuffy nose?
Sometimes fluid can accumulate in one or more of the sinuses and pour out as described. Especially if you have been swimming or using nasal saline. Persistent runny nose often happens to elderly but I don't know your age. See a doctor if this becomes bothersome.

See below: Nasal congestion does not mean you have sleep apnea, for sure. But it can exacerbate it. If you snore, have morning headaches, daytime sleepiness, gasp or choke for breath at night, wake up with a dry mouth, and/or have night time acid reflux, it may be sleep apnea. If so, please consult a sleep medicine specialist for evaluation. At minimum, your nasal congestion can be treated. Hope that helps! ...Read more
Wake up and cough up light brownish phlegm, after that normal green. Have a stuffy nose. Why the brownish color in the morning?
I had green mucus upon waking up the past 2 days. I kind of have a stuffy nose during the day. I don't have a cold or headaches. How can I treat it?
Guaifenesin: Is an excellent expectorant, meaning that it helps thin and loosen mucous and helps your body get rid of it. Guaifenesin is available in over-the-counter, under a number of different brand names including Robitussin and Mucinex, but you can probably get it cheaper by shopping for generic forms. I recommend 400 mg 3 times/day or 600 mg extended release twice a day. Get plain guaifenesin. ...Read more
I have a very nasal voice. I also have allergies, I don't think it's from stuffy nose because sometimes I don't have a stuffy nose but still am nasal.
Check with doctor: I have found that many people have got used to their nasal stuffiness even when it is present. Your perception of not having stuffy nose may well be what you have got used to. See your doctor when you think you don't have any nasal problem and see what he finds. I'd bet that you do always have moderate degree of nasal stuffiness. ...Read more
