I've never suffered from allergies, and this condition (which an ENT says is aggravated, but not solely caused, by a deviated septum
) isn't accompanied by any classic symptoms of rhinitis--runny nose
, mucous, etc. In fact, my nasal passages tend to be rather dry, except for low grade post-nasal drip, usually on the side that feels most blocked.
My spouse often reports that I begin tossing and turning around 2 AM, about 3 hours after I retire. By 3 or 4, I'm waking up every 15 min.
