It sounds like Rhinitis which can be caused by a range of things but most often very dry air in your house. When central heating is on the air in a house can get very dry and irritates the delicate membranes inside the nose.

Fan heaters are especially bad at drying air out. That is almost certainly the cause. You will surely still need the fan heaters on though if your boiler is broken?

Perhaps try drying your washing on racks and putting trays/bowls of water in each room would help until it is fixed - just to put some moisture back in the air and especially in your bedroom when you are sleeping.

Antihistamines will probably be what your GP recommends but do mention the fan heater so he/she knows the likely cause. I would say try some over the counter medicine like Piriton but it makes me drowsy and so may not be good if you are drivng.

Sagacious - exactly what I thought when I read the thread title.
