A stuffy nose can be very annoying, especially at night when you are trying to sleep. You cannot breathe properly, so you end up sleeping less and start to feel tired throughout the day. A runny nose is also a common symptom of a cold.
If you have a cold, the mucous membrane in the nose and sinuses is inflamed. This inflammation is caused by a virus. Our body tries to fight this virus by widening the blood vessels. This causes the blood flow to increase, which then causes increased pressure on the capillaries of the mucosa. This results in water entering the blood vessels, which then leaves the nose. At a later stage of the cold, this water becomes thicker and there is nasal congestion.
