Every night, I sleep fine but I do notice that my mouth and my nose is 'shut' or not getting oxygen in the morning when I wake up. This started to happen I believe 4 or 5 months ago. I do forcibly take several amounts of deep breath after noticing that in the morning just as a safety precaution. I did notice that every night before going to sleep, my nose is free and not clogged up but in the morning it is fully clogged that not much oxygen can go through (having to blow my nose every morning) and I perhaps trained to close my mouth couple months back because of the dislike in the smell and dry mouth taste. I tried to train my mouth to be open while sleeping but in the morning it reverts back. I don't have shortness of breath or like a immediate grasp of air kind of thing at all nor waking up in the middle of night grasping for air; I sleep fine (also I don't snore ever and had a family member confirm this). I am worried about if it is killing my brain cells because of this. Is there a way to regain brain cells? I heard there is a process called neurogenesis or Myelination or taking alot of Vitamin B1. And is there a 'proven-medical' way to test out if my brain cells been damaged? This might sound far-fetched, but if you don't have proper breathing, does it bloat your face? (I.e. cheeks)...
But I do experience this: -Short-term memory loss (couldn't remember a quote from a movie couple days ago) -Morning headaches -Lack of Energy; tiredness
But I don't know if these experiences are coming from how I am breathing at night or it could be some other things that is attributing to this.View Thread
That is very unfortunate to hear MA64NANA...I know for sure that the Lord knows the health complications that you are going through and is doing everything he can to make your life comfortable, I'll pray for your speedy recovery!
As for this symptom, it seems to disappear but don't know if its been gone completely yet; if it does come again, I'll just head to a physician.View Thread
