Why is it that when I wake up in the morning I always have a stuffy nose

You might be getting too hot while you sleep, that happens to me.
Does it go away after you've been out of bed for a while?
If so, I don't see any reason for worry. Lying down can cause your sinuses become congested. :)

I do, too. But it is only in one of my nostrils.

It could be due to a few things .. the air in your room is too dry, or you could have an allergy to your bedding. Maybe it's time to have your pillows and blankets washed.

Do you have a ceiling fan over your bed? If so, there's your answer. Fans blowing overhead even on low speed dry out your throat and your nose. Purchase a product called "Ocean". You can find it at your local drug store, Walmart, etc. It is a little white bottle with an orange cap. Ocean is buffered salt water which keeps the mucous and nasal passages moist and will relieve your stuffy nose.
