nose closes up when i lay down, any solutions?
everytime i lay down to go to sleep my nose closes up drastically and i am super stuffy and often a whistle is produced which has led to terrible nights, night after night.

anyone know any solutions to this?

i have tried breathe right strips which helps as well as snore things you shove up your nose to open it up, all these only sometimes work and is annoying.

anyone found a solution to this / experience this?


when i stand up and walk around for a bit my nose opens right up! soooo annoying i cant sleep standing up!

I always put straw (suck tubes) in my nose at such situations. Works great for me.

Re: nose closes up when i lay down, any solutions?
ive even had 2 surgeries for deviated septom, which opened up my passages but left me with a stupid annoying whistle making me regret the surgery, the true culprit was laying down. now that its more open on the inside when it closes up i get a whistle thanks to the surgery.

Try sleeping at a 45 degree angle? Use a lot of pillows to prop you up or ask your Dr to write a script for a hospital bed so you can adjust with a remote hf

One of the most important aspects of conspiracy theories is being able to discern when there isn't one.

Oh yeah, like you'd understand anyway.

Snort salty water 5 times a day.

Just don't add to much salt, start lean and add more until it starts to burn a bit. The salt will travel into your sinus's and dry out and crustify the mucus.

sleep on your back.

two pillows under your head.

Nasal decongestant.

Re: nose closes up when i lay down, any solutions?
OP, nooo don't put straws up your nose :/ If you could even fall asleep with them I bet it would only reduce the oxygen flow through your nose and imagine moving in your sleep and jamming them further in... I'm sure that could be deadly, somehow, with your brain right there and all..

I have a similar problem, and desperately want surgery for it. Hopefully I'll be looking into it soon. I use the Breathe Right strips which are pretty expensive, but without them I have to physically hold my face up while I sleep... If that makes any sense - it's ridiculous.

If that doesn't help you very much, depending on what the cause is it may be allergy-related, so you could try allergy remedies or medicine. You could also try a humidifier in your bedroom.

do not get surgery. They almost killed me the first time, literally. I started bleeding out at two in the morning. The blood was running so fast it was like a faucet, literally... The entire bathtub that I had to get in, the whole bottom was filled with blood. I passed out several times waiting for the ambulance. I thought I was going to die.

I had to have a second surgery to correct the damage the clotted blood did.

This left me with a whistle. I am worse off than before.

Wow, that is horrible. Sorry you had to go through that - it hurts me just thinking about it! Aside from the bleeding out and everything you went through with that, having a whistle would drive me nuts. I'll definitely keep that in mind... But you know how horrible it is not to be able to breathe at night. Sucks. I hope you figure out some way to help improve it.

i have the same problem. it really sucks having to breath through my mouth at night. but anyway, last night i took sudafed sinus advanced, reactin (allergy + sinus), and used a neti pot and it really helped. it's such a wonderful feeling to breath through your nose at night

Use pine tree oil. It's effective when you go to sleep at night. I use it all the time when I have a cold and stuffy nose.

Believe it or not, smoking some bud will actually open your sinuses for about 40 minutes, helping to reduce that sensation of mucus sliding all over and stuffing you up. You might be able to fall asleep due to the relief, but once the effect wears off, you'll probably wake up since your sinuses will be swollen once again.

I've had this happen for years to me, the only thing that helps is a humidifier in your room and taking vitamin A and D cause they help to your mucus membrane, also gooanti cancer things and just great for your body! (the vitamin a and d will take a little time to build back up cause you are more than likely missing a lot of vitamin a and d like I was :-))
Good luck!!!

Here's what I do and it works:
Take aspirin to reduce inflammation.
Get powdered Vit C (GNC or health food store) and take 1/8 to 1/4 tsp in a glass of water a few times during the day to clear it up. It's very tart but it does the trick.

As an aside, if I get a sore of any kind, I make a poultice with the a bit of Vit C and a little water. It gets rid of it pretty quickly.
