Your sinus are designed to drain thrugoh your nose or back thrugoh your throat. When you lay down your head is in a position where stuff doesn't drain, and it collects there. Also you don't breathe as much. and blow the dust out. Your circulation is less also.I take claritin at night, that fixes the problem.
