Your nasal breathing obstruction, when lying on either your right side or your left side could be because of swollen turbinates within your nasal passages.
There are fleshy, soft structures within your nose called turbinates. When you lie on one side these fleshy turbinates, if somewhat swollen, tend to shift, blocking one side of your nose while unblocking the other side of your nasal passages. It is strictly because of gravity, IMHO.
