When you have allergies and experience their symptoms at night, falling asleep can be a challenge. A stuffy nose that can lead to snoring, breathing is difficult, and waking up with a scratchy, sore throat is uncomfortable. Add postnasal drip, watery eyes, sinus pressure and headaches to the mix, and you feel like you’re in the middle of a never-ending nightmare.
Of course, you’re not alone in your suffering. According to the National Sleep Foundation, people with allergies often suffer from sleep problems, leading them to experience daytime fatigue, a decline in school or work performance, and even depression. And if you have sleep apnea, having allergies can exasperate the symptoms.
Before you turn to the nighttime allergy medicine, there are things you can try first to help you sleep.
The older your pillows are, the more skin cells, dust, body oils and sweat get trapped inside them. If you’re among the 20 million people in the U.S. who are allergic to dust mites, you’re only worsening your allergies by sleeping on old pillows. Some experts suggest you replace your pillow every six months.
If you can’t replace your pillow every six months, consider purchasing a zippered pillow cover, which can help protect your pillow from dust mites and other allergens. Wash the zippered protector every three weeks and the pillow itself every three months.
In the end, allergy season for many people doesn’t last the entire year, but long enough to be considered an extended bad dream. Use the above sleep help tips for allergy sufferers to get you through this allergy season well-rested.
