Sleeping positions with COVID-19 or Bronchiectasis
I just read a fb share from someone who had Covid. She asked her nurse what to do to fight it at home. One of the things that the nurse said was to sleep on your stomach at all times with Covid. If you can’t, then sleep on your side. Don’t lay on your back no matter what because it smashes your lungs and that will allow fluid to set in. Also when sitting in a recliner, sit up straight. Do not lay back in the recliner.
I wonder about sleeping positions with my Bronchiectasis. I sleep on an incline in my side. I always wake up with a stuffy nose. Shortly after sitting or standing straight up, my nose clears. Should I be sleeping on my stomach?
