sinus bleeds
in the morning around 4 to 6 am: while still asleep my left sinus fills with blood and wakes me because of the drip of blood. I blow my nose and the sinus drains andd the bleeding stops. It has been going on for 4 nights streight. Do you know what possibly it is? Jim

Sounds like extreme sinus irritation (Sinusitis) secondary to an infection.  The bleeding issue is very concerning.  

I would recommend consulting your PCP/GP about this ASAP.  Sounds like you need a decongestant, saline spray and possibly an ATB (only if this is an infection secondary to a bacterium or bacteria).  

It is worse when laying because there is no gravity helping the sinuses to drain.
