Why do I feel so bloated in morning. And throat feels like sand paper. I do have blocked nose most of the time?

Why do I feel so bloated in morning. And throat feels like sand paper. I do have blocked nose most of the time?

Allergic rhinitis: 1st, quit smoking. 2nd, quit smoking. 3rd, quit smoking. Blocked nose might be due to allergic rhinitis (or deviated septum).
