Good night, I have problems with breathing precisely in the morning when I wake up, when I wake up from sleep my nose is blocked, sneezing, phlegm and tightness in the chest. also did not experience a cough at all.Because of this worry I will come to the nearest clinic and do a check-up accompanied by a chest X-ray, and the results are all normal. Is this dangerous or not 🙏
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
From the symptoms you mentioned, chances are that you are experiencing allergic rhinitis or vasomotor rhinitis. Allergic rhinitis usually causes symptoms such as runny nose, sneezing, nasal congestion accompanied by itching in the nose, itching and runny in the eyes, it can also be accompanied by feeling unwell. Allergic rhinitis is caused by exposure to air allergens such as exposure to dust mites, animal dandruff, mold spores, flower pollen or grass. If you experience this in the morning only, then there may be allergens in your bedroom. You can try to clean your room from dust, change your sheets and pillowcases bolster at least once a week, clean your bed with a vacuum or dry your bed in the sun, keep away all objects that can collect dust from your room, if you have a building pet, try not to bring your pet into your room too.
Vasomotor rhinitis is caused by exposure to other things that are not potentially causing allergies, such as exposure to cold air, changes in weather, cigarette smoke, air pollution, too sharp odors, certain foods and drinks, hormonal changes, etc. Vasomotor rhinitis can be found symptoms such as runny nose, sneezing, nasal congestion, but usually itchy nose and eye symptoms are not found. To overcome this condition, you must find the trigger and avoid it.
Both of these conditions are harmless and do not require special treatment. The best treatment is to avoid exposure to triggers. To help reduce symptoms, you can rinse your nose with saline and use a humidifier or air moisturizer in your bedroom.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
