Breathing and bad dreams

My congestion is causing me bad dreams.  When it settles in my throat it causes funny sounds on my exhale.  I guess it's because some of the air gets trapped for a moment and then leaks out after the main exhale.  Clearing my throat or drinking something warm fixes the problem.  Can't do that when I'm asleep though.  What happens is that I hear the noises - which sounds like ghosts or an unhappy puppy.  Then my brain puts the sound into my dream.  I've had some very weird dreams over the past couple of days.

At first I thought it was related to my asthma, but I am actually not having a hard time getting air in and nothing feels constricted.  Just mucus in my throat.  Icky, but something easily dealt with.

The weather is supposed to be nice next week.  Keeping my fingers crossed that all of this ick has passed so I can go out for a - probably very very slow - 5k.  I'm sure I'll at least be able to walk it even if I'm not well enough to run it yet.
