Doctor Recommended Tips for Sleeping With a Stuffy Nose

Spring allergies, colds, the flu, and other common causes of a stuffy nose can make it tough to get a good night’s sleep. Related symptoms including post-nasal drip, itchy, watery nose and eyes, sinus pain and congestion can be bothersome enough to keep you up at night.

In the sleeping position, gravity increases blood flow to the nose which increases sinus pressure, leading to congestion in the nasal passages.

According to Dr. Subinoy Das, M.D., Chief Medical Officer at Tivic Health and CEO and Medical Director, U.S. Institute for Advanced Sinus Care and Research, “The holes in our sinuses that allow for drainage are very small, so a small amount of swelling from a sinus infection can clog the sinuses, create mucus buildup, and lead to congestion and sinus pain.”

Here are 9 natural ways to soothe your symptoms without medication, so you can get the rest you need to recover quickly:

Dr. Das adds, “Over 75% of my patients experience both sinus pain and congestion symptoms. In some cases, these are chronic conditions lasting for weeks. ClearUP’s gentle microcurrent technology can turn off signals from the autonomic nerves in the face, and break the cycle of chronic inflammation, providing fast, effective pain and congestion relief.”
