Insomnia with body heat and dry throat

When temperatures starting rising in June, I’ve had chronic insomnia. I have studied it very carefully and eliminated all factors except 1) heat 2) humidity 3) air pressure. When 1 or more of those are high, I wake up feeling hot and often a dry throat. I have adjusted my humidifier, dehumidifier, A/C, and fan religiously which helps but it’s still going on.

I got a sleep study done and was not diagnosed with sleep apnea. Before this started, I started using Flonase every day and also saline water in my nasal passages. That could be causing inflammation and I plan on going to the ENT next.

Anyone had this kind of strange insomnia. I have eliminated diet and stress and sure of that.

Thanks! I hope I can also help others in this community


Try Vicks vapor rub on the bridge of your nose. I do it every night and sleep so well. Just a dab

I think my problems have been due to Flonase medication. I’ve stopped taking and things are getting better
