Re: Nose feels blocked all the time please advise!!
While it has probably been talked to death here, likewise the decongestants and nasal steroid sprays give me some temporary relief. Actually I can tolerate the congestion pretty well during the day. Its always very early morning or late night when more congestion sets in I think due to rolling over from side to side sleeping. I heard somewhere on here due to your nasal cycle. Cause if I can manage to lie still in one side all night, ny nose can stay reasonably clear (but I can't LOL).
baldy: what you should stay away from are the otc nasal sprays like otrivin or dristan, etc. After more than a few days use, it may cause rebound effect and make your congestion worst. I used otrivin for 4 days straight to try to unblock my ears and threw the bottle away. The rebound was awful.
Oh yes, if anyone else can confirm it, don't do nasal rinses if your ears get blocked up due to sinus issues. It might make matters worst.
