  • i think its because the congestion adds to making you tired, and that run down feeling. When you clear your sinuses, even for a moment, you feel better and more awake. The watery eyes comes from congestion for me. And the congestion is sometimes a symptom of my overtiredness. So its kinda a cycle. Best wishes. Get more sleep!

  • I think the whole action and noise of blowing your nose would be impossible to stay sleepy through. Pretty noisy stuff!

  • no, it is more like opening my sinius makes me awake
    this is only when tired with watery eyes
    not when just tired, boy would that be nice, not that moms get tired alot

  • thanks diane
    thought it was congestion but what i did NOT think of was that just being over tired makes you congested
    the cycle=makes sense
    getting more sleep, easier said than done!
