Have to agree on fans - if used appropriately they are generally healthier than A/C.
Providing it is not unbearably hot I have always found it more comfortable to use (if available) the old fashioned ceiling fans at their lower speeds, this gently moves the air in the room and helps to keep you cool but without causing the kind of draughts which are likely to produce other aches and pains.
Amongst the various advantages are that they use considerably less electricity and don’t dry out the air which can cause other respiratory ailments - a big disadvantage of ceiling fans can be found when they are installed in low rooms and you stick your hands up in the air
If it is unbearably hot, you could try cooling the room with A/C for a couple of hours before going to bed and switching the A/C off and a fan on when you do go to bed.
I got to like ceiling fans years ago in Asia and Africa before A/C became common place – sometimes modern technologies are not as good for us as the older technologies they replaced
