The only nasal spray I can use is rhinaris and only when absolutely necessary. If your problem of breathing is only when laying down then you should get that tape that goes over your nose - gosh what's it called now - can't find it on internet with search term using. You just tape it across your nose bridge. I used it a few times when my dad was visiting and it did wonders for me.

I also have my own little remedy may not be advisable but it works for me! I take a qtip and dip it in vicks vaporub making sure to remove any excess (squeezing the qtip with my fingers) and then I take that and gently rub the inside of my nostrils as far as is comfortable for me... and it works - I'm not recommending just telling you what works for me when nothing else does! good luck!!

Well, my first piece of advice is to eat something spicy or hot. you can use anything. but if that doesn't work, there is another method, called acupressure. It's really simple, and easy to do.

Perform the below routine 3 times:
--------------------------------------...
1. Perform 10 pressures on a cavity at the corner of the nostrils (point 1). You should almost close and open the nostrils when you do the round movement.

2. Perform 10 pressures on a cavity just below the corner of the eyes near the nose (point 2)

3. Perform 10 pressures on a cavity just below the ear, behind the earlobe (point 3)

4. Massage the earlobe 10 times (point 4)
--------------------------------------...
After performing the above 3 times, you should feel immediate relief of your nasal congestion. It is advised to return on the above procedure again in about 10 minutes to make it more permanent or the congestion could return.

P.S. Go to the address below for more instructions, with pictures and everything.

AND if that doesn't work, try lying down on your stomach with your face facing sideways. Just sleep like that. It will allow you to get at least half of a good nights sleep. however, you have to deal with the stuffy nose again in the morning. THIS IS A LAST RESORT!!!

Try sinupret tablet. It's an over the counter drug. It could be an allergic rhinitis, and your doctor should give you an anti-histamin. I have the same problem as yours, but it was dramatically changed when I started water theraphy. I discontinue medicines. Proper diet, regular 8 hour sleep, exercise and plenty of waters will make you less susceptible to sickness.

Stop taking the nasal sprays right now. They can cause what's called rebound congestion. That is, they do clear the nasal passages at first but for some reason the nasal passages end up swelling up worse than if you didn't use it. A pharmacist or doctor could explain it better. You might have allergic rhinitis that is causing your nose to feel stuffy and clogged. Try an allergy medicine like Aerius or Claritin (non-drowsy) or Benadryl (can cause drowsiness) to help get the swelling down. You might also want to check with a doctor about a prescription nasal spray that doesn't cause rebound congestion. Nasonex and Flonase are two good ones to ask about.

Oh I've had that and it's a miserable time. A neti pot is very helpful. It cleans out your nose and it's so much easier to breathe. But if you don't have or can't get a neti pot (amazon.com or a health food center) take a hot shower and let the water run into your nose. Breathe through your mouth. Or the very warm cloth across your face acts just as well. Then blow. All that stuff will come out and maybe even some blood. You may have to do it several times a day, but it works.

Cut it off. LOL I also have allergies about 9 months out of the year, When the phone rings everyone always says (I'm sorry did I wake you up?). I wish there was an easy answer. Sorry.

Sniff some of the Vicks Vapor stuff. Also I know this sounds simple, but try blowing your nose. Just to let you know, do not put the vapor rub directly on your nose, as it will leave a red burning sensation. Just put the jar to your nose and sniff. Hope this helps.


jonnyraven
get a neti pot. You can get one at a health food store or online. You can use it with warm salty water or if you are really stuffed up go to a drugstore and ask for a bottle of alkalol (not alcohol). Use it in the neti pot diluted with warm water

I can relate! It's frustrating, isn't it?

Sounds like a problem with your turbinates -- those little "bowls" of water in our nasal cavities. They lie in a "horizontal" direction in the nose (see the graphic on the website listed in the Source box).

My doctor explained to me several years ago the proper way to blow my nose to empty those turbinates...so I would have less sinus problems overall (and 15 years later, so far, so good!):

1. Loosen everything up by creating a humid environment...preferably of warm, moist air (i.e., lay a really warm washcloth-compress on your face; put a towel over your head and bend over a sink of hot water for several minutes, etc.).

2. Once you feel the mucus beginning to Loosen, bend over at the waist (the upper body is perpindicular to the floor), and then blow your nose.

If you can visualize them as little bowls of water, you can better understand why bending over works to empty them out. It also makes sense that they would clog or drain down your throat when lying down.

My doctor also said that our goal is to have clear nasal mucus...yellow and / or green colors signify an infection.

It may take a few times before you feel like your nose is cleared out such that it won't be a bother when you lay down...

Hope this helps!
