Allergies and Sleep Disorders

Problems breathing increase risk of insomnia

A stuffy nose, scratchy throat and sneezing can interrupt your day – and keep you up at night. Allergic reactions to what’s in the air or what you eat can bring on a heyday of symptoms, including poor sleep.

Allergy and sleep connections

Allergy symptoms like nasal congestion, sneezing and watery eyes cause difficulty breathing and can get worse at night. Without the rest you need, you may find yourself waking up on the grumpy side of the bed with little energy to get through your day.

More than 50 million people in the U.S. suffer from allergies to everything from pollen and pet hair to dust and foods. Your symptoms may lead to restless hours of insomnia, increased snoring, poor quality sleep or short sleep.

Untreated allergies can make breathing during the night more difficult. Instead of uninterrupted hours of quality sleep, you may wake up several times with a congested nose, sneezing or coughing fit.
