HELP! Can a Blocked Nose Cause Dreams About Suffocating?

My brother threw a hairbrush at my nose. I've gone to a doctor about it, and he said there's a piece of cartilage that fell off the bone and is blocking my airway.

He said surgery is risky and could possibly make my nose fatter/leave a hole in my nose so I declined surgery.

I'm trying to live with the constant blocked nose, sniffing, and whistling, and sometimes only one nostril is blocked, but it makes me really panicky.

In fact, I've had dreams about suffocating multiple times and this has never happened before I broke my nose. Can anyone help!?

    Yes, it can.

    Time to bring out that nebulizer.
