I have pain in my right nostril, sometimes left also, when I breathe through my nose. This happens while sleeping and leads to a temporary headache.
My husband's nose is constantly stuffed up and he can hardly sleep at night. What can we do? His nose sometimes gets a bit clearer, but it's often stuffed up. He can't breathe through his nose at night and that means he doesn't sleep well because he snore
I : I would recommend that you see your local primary care provider, allergist or ENT provider. There are many reasons for having a stuffy nose (allergies, cold/sinus infection, polyps, deviated septum etc). Saline irrigations, decongestants (oral and nasal), antihistamines are over-the-counter products that can be tried. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What can I do to go to sleep. Due to allergies or a cold. My breathing is what's stoping me from sleeping and I can't breath through my nose. Any tips?
Keep nose open: If the problem is mostly from allergies, then OTC nasal steroid may help. If it is due to a crooked septum, you may try BreatheRight strip or see an ENT to get it straightened out. If medication does not work and no crooked nose, see allergist. Sleep disruption has major impact on your quality of life and performance and must not be ignored. ...Read more

For 2 years I have difficulty breathing. I have shortness of breath & can't breath through my nose unless im sleeping. Have to bend over & breath deep.
Need ENT/ allergy: And pulmonary consults. If everything has been tested and has come back normal but i would recommend that you get a referral to a tertiary care university center for a more high-level evaluation. I can't tell if your ocd perhaps even plays a role in this. You should have your psychiatrist on board with these consultations. Hopefully with everyone putting their minds together they will be able to come up with a solution to your problem. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
