Good thing you start trying to find out early. Sleep deprivation could affect your lifestyle and ability to think. In the long run, it could promote heart problems and high blood pressure. It’s an extremely common problem, with one study noting that only 17% of allergy patient having an optimal sleep, half of which said that the allergy woke them up and make it hard to go back to sleep.
Why are allergies worse at night? According to William E. Berger, a professor of medicine in the University of California, for nasal allergies, four things occurs. These are itching, sneezing, runny nose and followed by mucus formation, which in turns become nasal congestion and mucous membranes would swell.
For example, when you lie down and feel your nose congested, you will find a nice breathing position, however, this only cause mucus to collect in the back of the throat, so you cough. All night long you end up coughing and try your best to breathe through your blocked nose and well that disrupt your sleep.
