Why does my nose run in the morning?

Every morning when I wake up for the last few months I get a streaming nose and sneezes. I don't get it during the rest of the day, it's weird.

Is my nose pregnant? Am I just allergic to mornings? grin

Dust in your pillow? :/

Sounds like any allergy. Dust or cat fur?

I get this. It goes on until lunchtime. It's very annoying, and I get through loads of tissues. I have no idea why though.

Yes, but Rhinitis is just the name for a runny nose, either due to an allergy, or not..but not because of a virus, ie the common cold.

It could be non-allergic rhinitis, which is what I think I have.

Not fur. Could it be dust mites? The duvet hasn't been washed in a shockingly long time. It stops after I get up.

It doesn't happen if I lie down in bed during the day, though. Only when I sleep there all night.

If you're pregnant, it could be hormonal, or could be due to a change in temperature - that affects me, but much more so in the morning.

Not pregnant. Temperature thing I thought was to do with pressure changes? In any case it starts shortly after I wake up but I'm still lying in bed.

I have no idea why but I have EXACTLY the same problem! I sometimes take a one-a-day allergy tablet before bed and wake up fine. I think mine must be dust.

I second/third allergic rhinitis. DH gets it - his is a dust mite/cat hair allergy. It's the source of the constant, loud snoring and the morning snot-fests. Relentless cleaning/washing/hoovering helps.

I get this too, have had for as long as I can remember. Presume it's an allergy and take anti histamines when I remember.
