Every morning for the past six months, I have woken up with one or the other nostril totally blocked. The condition seems worse in the early morning hours so it wakes me up, and blowing my nose does not help. I have no other symptoms and this rarely even causes a headache...but it wakes me up early and keeps me up! I have not added any medications or different foods. I have lived in the same house and slept in the same room for over thirty years - the only change was a new mattress about a year and a half ago! What might be the cause and what can I do about it?
