Discovered it was the pets (or at least that was what I was told by the allergist) which abound in my home, and was told to keep them from the bedroom. Fat chance - they don't know my pets! Anyway, while the same condition continues, since I went on apap with the hypoallergenic filters it no longer continues throughout the night. Within a very short time on filtered air, it is amazingly ameliorated. Don't know about your other issues, but more frequent filter changes might be of some help. Good luck.
Oh, yes. I also use a humidifier on a fairly high setting.
I've found much the same thing - I used to get fairly congested at night, before starting CPAP. So I was sort of worried about a nasal mask... but it's coming up on 2 years now and it's never been an issue for me... in fact, even on a couple nights where I was a bit congested before bed, I put the mask on anyhow, as an experiment, and the congestion cleared right up.
Go figure. :-)
