Help me stop the morning snots.
Invariably, every morning my sinuses go into overdrive about 5-10 minutes after I wake up. My nose gets completely congested and I'll have to honk wads of clear mucous into several tissues to clear it out.

If I don't blow it out, it will actually build up to the point that it will start to run out my nose.
Yeah, I know. Ick.
Most times after I blow it all out my sinuses will still be swollen and it will be hard to breathe for my nose for the next hour or so, after which it goes away.
Sometimes though, the blowing starts sneezing fits that may follow me through the whole day.
This has been going on for several years and I finally "woke up" to the fact that this may not be normal.
I used to think that I have a slight allergy to cats (had 2 up until a month ago, now down to one), but I've noticed that nothing changes when I go on vacation or am otherwise away from the cat.
How do I stop this? Am I a candidate for a turbinectomy
