Stuffy nose....
#1
Stuffy nose....
Sometimes through the middle of the night, and when I wake up one of my sinuses is completely blocked, once I get up , it clears up pretty quickly. And it never gets stuffy again as I go through the day, or when I go to sleep.My question is , what is the relationship between sinuses and humidity? I have my humidity set slightly higher at 6 on the airsense, and have no runny nose or any other effects that I can tell, but would it help to increase or decrease it? Before I go experimenting,  I thought I would ask here…

Thank you.

RE: Stuffy nose....
Of course, much depends on the humidity level in your room. I've tried a few different humidity settings,
and found that higher humidity will give me the same congested feeling you describe.

So I keep it lower, between 2 and 4, again depending on the humidity level in my room. I use a hygrometer to determine that. About 10 bucks on Amazon.

Everyone responds differently to humidity, some don't use it at all.
