Best Way To Stop Waking Up With Sinus Pain

Are you all too familiar with waking up in the morning with a blocked nose, feelings of pressure in your forehead and swelling around your eyes, cheeks and nose? If so, there’s a good chance you’re suffering from sinus pain caused by something you do when you are sleeping.

It may sound strange but sleeping with your mouth open and breathing through your mouth while sleeping greatly increases your chances of waking up with stuffy or blocked sinuses.

Here’s how it works: when you breathe through your nose you ventilate your sinuses, which helps keep them clear and healthy. If you breathe through your mouth when sleeping your sinuses and nasal passage aren’t getting ventilated. This is bad because your brain then decides to increase mucous production to help protect you from pathogens and deficits in carbon dioxide levels.

The increase in mucous production can lead to acute sinusitis and blocked nasal passages forcing you to breathe through your mouth, which only increases the risk of sinusitis.

When acute sinusitis is left untreated or exacerbated by mouth breathing it can develop further into chronic sinusitis, which, in extreme cases, may require sinus surgery to provide relief. Often sinus surgery can be avoided through the effective combination of medication and nasal breathing.

Make the switch today to maintain nasal breathing when sleeping and look forward to getting good quality sleep without sinus pain.

When children breathe through their mouths during the day chances are that they also breathe through their mouths at night. Mouth breathing at night is directly connected to altered levels of carbon dioxide and oxygen in the blood stream. When less oxygen is able to reach the brain, learning and the ability to focus at school becomes a problem for many children.
