    It sounds like it could be allergies or possibly a sinus infection.

    Are you getting heartburn or sick burps? If you are you may have allergies and reflux.

    You could try taking some antihistamine to see if it helps. I would recommend taking in the evening though because it can make you drowsy and don't drink alcohol if you take them.

      Try some nexium to see if it helps, you need 1 every day. But take a multi vitamin and mineral every day with it too as nexium can stop you absorbing nutrients from food and drinks but it is really good at helping reflux symptoms.

      I get a blocked nose and a bit phlegmy and wheezy in the morning and a cold and flu tablet can sometimes help. I use Beechams all in 1, but any brand with those same ingredients is fine even a supermarket own brand works the same.

      Look up breathing exercises for dysfunctional breathing or diaphragmatic breathing techniques. I have had a lot of breathing problems and these exercises have helped a bit. We can get in bad breathing habits without realising.
