Allergies Keeping You Up At Night: Be Worried of Exhaustion




Waking up in the morning, fully rested, is the best way to start a day. A warm shower, a healthy breakfast, and you are ready for the new challenges that will come your way, throughout the day. However, if you didn’t sleep well, or not at all, everything will seem more difficult. If you can’t stop coughing or your nose is running at night, it might be because you are suffering from allergies.

Restricted Breathing at Night: A Cause of Anxiety

If you have problems breathing at night, and you feel your airways are restricted, it might be what specialists call nocturnal asthma. This condition can be caused by dust or pet hairs floating around, or a room too cold which can impair your lung function and restrict them from pushing air out easily. When this happens, the level of oxygen in your bloodstream is reduced, which will augment your sensation of being tired. The more exhausted you’ll get, the higher the anxiety will grow.

One solution to this problem is to learn breathing techniques for anxiety. As your anxiety grows, your breathing follows, which brings many consequences, including the fact that falling asleep again, might become impossible. By learning how to control your breathing and calming it down, you will be able to return to sleep and face the day in a better condition. You’ll also be able to make better decisions and take actions to solve the mystery of your breathing difficulty, coughing or runny nose, in the morning.

Don’t Mistake Your Symptoms for a Cold

If your nose is running and you cough at night, the first thing you will think is that you caught a cold or that you have the flu. However, there might be another explanation to it, especially if it starts happening frequently. These symptoms are often seen in persons suffering from allergies.

The other symptom that results from nocturnal allergies is fatigue. You may think you are sleeping, but the small coughing is enough to seriously disrupt your sleep, leaving you exhausted within a few days.

Deciding on taking over-the-counter medicine, to relieve the allergy symptoms, might also be the wrong decision. Doctors agree that most of them create even more fatigue, which won’t help you feel better. The solution is to visit an allergist, so that he can proceed to tests, which will precisely indicate which medicine you should be taking.

In the meantime: Breathe!
