Best Answer

Easy....the fan dry out the air, which results in drying your natural saliva, thus drying out your nose, mouth and throat.

Answers -

you do not even have to sleep under it (as in a ceiling fan) a fan anywhere in your room has the same result. Ask me. feel like sh!t this morning!

I get sore eyes as well because of fans

Easy solution: purchase a humidifier (spelling?!) They aren't expensive and oh so necessary (especially in the winter.)

Hmm, doesnt happen to me and I sleep with a huge fan on every night, else I cant sleep. I actually wake up with blocked nose if I dont put the fan on. Maybe you are falling asleep with your mouth open, or worse could be snoring?

As Freaks as stated... some suffer from backache... I use the fan to cool room down, then I switch it off...

It dry's you out like a piece of bilton. No moisture anywhere!

Any artificial heating or cooling will do this...I turn everything off an hour before I go to bed...in summertime a pure cotton sheet...and in winter a big warm duvet. You can help the air a bit if you put a bowl of water in the room...but change it daily or it will become a nursery for the mozzies.

Problem is, it`s so hot when you go to bed and i hate getting all sweaty so we put the fan on and then only do i fall asleep, only to wake up feeling HUNG OVER and it`s horrible. Open the window the mozzies feast on you....so what to do? hmmm trying to twist hubby`s arm for aircon but i think that might just give the same effect as a fan....i suppose i`ll have to just put up with it rather than lay in a bed drenched in sweat...yuk!

I sleep with my windows open and a pedestal fan on in the room. The mozzies cannot fly against the airflow generated by the fan and to prevent the drying out effect I place a small bowl of water on the side table beside my bed which I change every evening. I suffer no ill-effects at all.
