What Causes Breathing Through Mouth With Stuffy Nose?

Can wearing glasses cause breathing-through-nose problem because of the glasses resting on bridge of nose. I breathe through my mouth mostly now because my nose is always stuffed up. I m very tired - can t stay awake to drive any distance, headaches, because of breathing issues. I also have asthma - which never bothered me as much as this issue does. I may be grasping at straws - but something has caused this problem and I ve had it for 4 months or so - taken antibiotics - still the same issue.

Cardiologist 's  Response
Hello,

Your symptoms are not related to wearing glasses, but they could be indicative of hypertrophy of the nasal mucosa or sinus infection. For this reason, I recommend consulting with an ENT specialist for a physical exam and performing a sinus endoscopy.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist
