Nasal allergies can contribute to sleep difficulties according to survey
This article discusses a survey showing that 59 percent of nasal allergy sufferers surveyed said they have sleep issues as a result of their allergy symptoms, but only 35% take medicine to prevent the allergy symptoms. Nasal allergies can reduce airflow through the nose, which can make snoring and sleep apnea worse. This is particularly true for children. Sometimes, I send my patients to allergists or ear / nose / throat specialists for evaluation of their nasal symptoms.
