Sinus Problems

For 2 yr's now I have had, on and off, an Irritated nose. I will be fine during the day, 90 % is first thing in the morning.
All night long I am fine, soon as I wake up my nose gets itchy then runs, I start sneezing. This will go on for about 3 hrs. I use paper towels instead of tissue due to so much mucuse. Mucuse is Clear. Antihistamines usually don't work
If I plug my nose with paper towel at the very beginning it quite often goes away.
I do have asthma, mainly as a child but has worsened the past few years. I take Simbicort daily to maintain

Re: Sinus Problems

Have you tried a saline rinse like NeilMed?

Re: Sinus Problems

Are your symptoms the same indoors as outdoors.
I have similar symptoms to you and am always better when outside the house. I put this down to having two cats.
Like you I have tried a number of things, some have given a slight improvement others none.
I have recently ordered myself an indoor air-purifier which is also combined with an ionizer, I'm hoping this may help. Sometimes we can avoid the offending substance causing our symptoms but not always.
A steroid nasal spray from your Dr could help. I wish you well,

Solofelix.

PS. Plugging your nose could cause PND and then the mucus will go down your throat.

Re: Sinus Problems

have you tried different types of antihistamines? I know that some of them don't work on me.

Also you could be allergic to dust and dustmites, which breed in pillows and mattresses. which would explain why you are worse forst thing in morning after waking.

I have got special dustmite covers for mattress, duvet and pillows..also bought a new mattress (in case old one was filled with mites) and new pillows. It is amazing how much dust can be seen on the mattress cover when changing sheets. Also matress covers, pillows, duvets etc should all be washed at 60 C regularly to kill the dust mites. Doing this may help reduce allergies.

I also have an air filter, and was amazed to see how much dust it collects. Also I have no carpets...they are a haven for dust and dust mites...

However, even doing all this may not help if you have allergies to pollen etc, which is constantly in the air.
