1nostril at a time: People only breathe from one nostril at a time. Your blood flow engorges that nostril to carry as much oxygen as possible to your blood. After a couple of minutes, it will switch to the other side. It is common, especially with a cold to have congestion and then feel draining after a couple of minutes or to feel different symptoms on each nostril. ...Read more
Can a stuffy nose throughout night cause oxygen deprivation? I go to sleep with a little stuff nose and wake up with stuffy nose after 10 hours.
The nose knows: Your stuffy nose, while a nuisance that can cost you a good night's sleep, is no threat to adequate oxygenation.

This is why you wake up with a dry mouth as well as a stuffed nose. ...Read more
One nostril gets stopped up/inflammed? Every night. Almost always only one nostril gets stopped up or inflammed at night interrupting my sleep. The nose strips work sometimes but really tired of using those. Afrin works great but i can't use every night
I : I suggest you see an ENT (ear nose and throat) specialist. You may be dealing with enlarged turbinates. These are are small rounded bony projections inside the breathing passage on each side of your nose. They can cause significant blockage resulting in symptoms as you described in your post. One side could be larger than the other, further explaining your problem. There are procedures to help reduce the size of the turbinates, and would ultimately solve your breathing problem. Best of luck. ...Read more

Possibly, +: It is certainly possible that your nasal passages are reacting to environment at night, such as pillow, down blanket, dusty carpet, mites or other dust particles floating around.

Can nasal congestion cause temporary sleep apena? Waking up gasping for air when nose is congested. Husband says i don't snore.
Yes: Apnea technically is the cessation of breathing, usually caused by blockage of the airways in the throat or from the brain not sending signals to breathe. The nasal passages being congested usually causes people to sound like they are gasping, because they are forced to breathe through their mouths, not technically causing apnea, but close. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
