breathing through mouth

hi!

I have a cold right now, and I'm feeling all stuffed up, I'm taking sudafed which is helping a bit, but I am still only able to breathe through my mouth.

I find that i am often burping...does this have anything to do with me breathing through my mouth? maybe because im taking more air in???

confused?

Re: breathing through mouth

I had a similar problem when I was really feeling my worst. I kept getting the hiccups. I assumed, like you, that it was because I was breathing through my mouth more...but it made me feel worse!

Well I have chronic sinusitus, I dont breathe through my mouth, however I do burp a lot and it's because i keep having to swallow all the mucous that goes down my throat(can happen if you have a bad cold too). It really sucks, I keep drinking water because I find that it helps the mucous to go down better than just swallowing, and cuts down the burping. So drink a lot of water
