I sleep with lavender essential oil on my pillow for sleep, but lately I wake up every day with a stuffy nose. Is this normal or an allergy to it?
Not normal: It is not normal to have a stuffy nose every day. Whether this is due to allergy or not requires an examination and evaluation. The lavender oil per se is unlikely to be the cause for your congestion although the scent may potentially trigger sneezing and even a runny nose. The easiest way is to use another pillow not touched by lavender oil and see if the congestion goes away or not. ...Read more

I wake up with a stuffed nose every morning and is fine after 20 minutes or so for the rest of the day. Allergies?

The tightness in chest may also be from asthma which is often associated with hay fever (allergic rhinitis). See your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Feeling there's dust in throat and sometimes nose gets stuffy. No other cold symptom, taking reflux meds already. Allergy or what? Gets worse at night
Probably reflux: Your symptoms do not suggest allergy. If you sleep rather flat, acid can come up the esophagus and cause either irritation of the throat or of the lining of the esophagus. Raise your head with either 8" blocks under the bed or a medical wedge that you can place under y our mattress. Also, no food or drink for 2 hours before bedtime. No help, see your physician first. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
