Why Do I Wake Up With A Stuffy Nose And Sinus Pressure? Video

Mouth breathing really increases the chance of waking up with sinus pressure and a stuffy nose.

It might seem logical that mouth breathing occurs because the nose is congested, but that is not always the case. The brain of a mouth breather thinks carbon dioxide is being lost too quickly from the nose and stimulates the goblet cells to produce mucous in the nose to slow the breathing.

This creates a cycle of mouth breathing triggering mucous formation, nasal passage blocking, leading to more mouth breathing. So in fact, mouth breathing can cause nasal congestion leading to more mouth breathing.
