Horrible Stuffy Nose

My nose is so stuffed up that I can hardly sleep. I wake up all the time to blow my nose. Also, when I blow it, there is always blood. It is driving me and my husband crazy. I have tried inhaling the steam from a cup of hot tea before bed, but it doesnt work. Anybody have any non-medication remedies that work?

how far along are you? mine eased up a bit around 18 weeks. It's still stuffy, especially at night, but it's more tolerable. have you tried the saline nose spray? don't use the other nose sprays.

I am 22 weeks and it did go away for a while ( between 16 and 20 weeks ) but now its back wrose than before. Its pretty much only at night. I will give the saline kind a try.

I totally have a stuffy nose. I use Vicks or a similar chest rub. That helps and the smell is soothing. Helps me sleep. I also find that elevation of my head while I'm sleeping helps. Good luck!

I am having the same problem...it is driving me nuts and I am not getting any sleep! I have not found much that works though...still searching!

oh no! it's worse? eek! well, if you do try the saline spray, let us know how it works out. I'm 'dealing' with it, but haven't been compelled to buy a bottle. Actually, I forgot this, but now remembered ... if I spend a good 3-5 minutes brushing my teeth before I go to bed, by the time I'm done, my nose feels a little runny, and when I b__w it, voila, my nasal pa__sages feel open. (but then by 3am I wake up stuffy) oh well! It helped : )

I take my saline spray every where I go! It's the only thing that has helped so far! It does tend to dry my nose out but it beats the alternative!

I have the answer. BREATHE RIGHT STRIPS!!!! They are fabulous. I had the stuffy nose too and these stopped it instantly. I was finally able to breathe again.

According to my doctor you can use saline nasal spray, benadryl, sutafed, sinutab. Try putting some vics vapor rub on your chest before bed.
