Why do my sinuses always close up at night?

The older I get, the worse my sinus issues. Throughout the day, my nasal passages are mostly okay, but it never fails: I get into bed at night, close my eyes, and ten minutes later I can't breathe. While I'm working my way through various remedies (drugs, doctors, homebrewed quackery, et cetera), I'd just like to know WHY this invariably happens? What's going on up inside my head?

Why do my sinuses shut down at night?

Too frequently, my sinuses ambush me at night. I'm fine throughout the day, then as soon as I hit the pillow--bam--something inside stuffs my nose for no decent reason other than to give me a headache that keeps me up half the night. Doc's X-rays show no abnormalities in my sinus cavities, but if I take his prescribed Allegra D too late in the day, the pseudoephedrine prevents me from sleeping. Do I need to move to a drier climate, or is there some miracle home remedy that I'm missing?

How can I clear my sinus problem?

Help me breathe! The older I get, the more sinus trouble I have. Almost every morning I wake up with a semi-headache because one of my nasal passages is entirely blocked. This isn't a seasonal thing, nor does it seem to be allergy-related. During the day it clears up, but at night, I must depend upon nasal spray (the kind you're not supposed to use too consistently). Should I take the plunge and go see a doctor? Or is there some miracle drug I can get over the counter?
