Sinuses Fill Up When I Lay Down

    
Asked by jsmaxwell (Male; 32; History of migraine.; Relevant drugs:Use relpax as needed. ) on Wed 08, Jul 2009 11:30pm

I am a reasonably healthy 32 year old male with a history of migraines (since I was 11 yrs old). Whenever I lay down my sinuses fill up. If I lay on my right side my right one fills up to the point that I can't breathe out of my right nostril, but my left one is completely open. If I turn over to my left side, whatever is filling it up drains over to my left sinus so that my left nostril is completely blocked by my right one is open. Ever hear of this?

Hello, These symptoms are due to congestion of the sinuses by mucus.It can be due to allergies,viral infections,deviated nasal septum,chronic sinusitis,adenoid enlargement and diseases like sarcoidosis and GERD. Pls discuss these options with an ENT specialist and get yourself evaluated.A CT or MRI sinuses may be required to confirm the diagnosis. Hope it helps.Take care and regards.
