Hello everyone, I cant begin to tell the time since I've been having trouble with unrefreshed sleep, since nearly 2006 I've had trouble waking up in the morning along with what felt like a dull pressure in my forehead making me drowsy and sleepy. The entire day would go with me being sleepy as if almost being drugged with fatigue & impaired thinking, this problem gradually over the years has gotten worse.
A few months back I noticed that I consistently had a clogged/blocked nose especially in the morning and a visit to the ENT revealed I had a Deviated Nasal Septum.The ENT prescribed some medications which I took for a month and did not follow up. I still suffer from what appears to be a clogged nose impairing my breathing.
As a child I did have issues waking up in the morning feeling unrefreshed, I wonder if it is the same problem that has over the years increased several fold.
As of now I suffer from heavy and a drowsy head in the morning, feeling fatigued and wanting to lie down instead of working and this happens to me everyday.The tiredness is simply excruciating.
So to put it simply can this nose of mine create problems for a good nights refreshing sleep??? Can it cause lack of oxygen being taken to my lungs giving me a heavy head in the morning???
I have absolutely no family support on this matter and some insights & advice would really help.
I am also an IBS sufferer which my make my like all the more miserableView Thread
Thank you Doc, I don't think a sleep study will be available in my area. But another problem is the fact that I've never felt like I breathe through my mouth at night, I've never been heard snoring during sleep.Can you recommend me some steps I could take to minimize any sleep difficulties caused by nose clogging. Does nasal irrigation work ?
Apologies for the late reply, I was busy with office work so took some time to follow up. I just hope this problem of mine can be resolvedView Thread
