I'm 21 and am struggling to breath out of my right nostril. Only happens at night and mostly when laying down. I've done absolutely everything I can think of to fix it but it doesn't work. It's driving me crazy as I'm lucky to get 4 hours sleep a night for over a year.
I saw a Dr about it and she reckoned I have dust mite allergy. Blood came back negative but she was still sure it was that.
I ended up buying an asthma council approved air purifier, allergy bedding, washing hot once a week, cleaning fan regularly, and vacuuming carpet with a HEPA filter vaccume cleaner weekly. Didn't help. Vicks and all didn't help. I tried nasel sprays for months as well and antihistamines. Nothing worked.
I went back and saw another Dr recently. He put me on predoslione got a week. This didn't help either. He said because that didn't work it's very unlikely to be an allergy.
I'm now waiting to see a private ENT but can't get in until the middle of January. So until then I'm not sure what to do. The only thing that does work is a nasel decongestant but can't use them for more than a few days.
Has anyone got any ideas what else may help? January is a fair wait and this little sleep is difficult.
