Deviated septum dizziness

Common Questions and Answers about Deviated septum dizziness

deviated-septum

in the AM i will have a little solid white discharge when i blow my nose but its nothing major. i went to an ENT. had a ct scan done of my sinuses. DR said i had a deviated septum with a bone spur. i am scheduled for all kinds of allergy testing and a VNG ( for possible ear issues ) but after talking w/insurance and billing, i can not afford all the testing. DR said the deviated septum and bone spur could be causing me the issues but wanted to do all this other testing first.
I'm sort of leaning towards going for surgery, because the CT scan also showed that I have a deviated nasal septum that has been giving me a lot of breathing problems for a lot of my life (it was misdiagnosed as hay fever), that I would like to have fixed with another surgery - and the ENT specialist said that I can have the 2 surgeries together, which will save me some time and trouble.
For 8 months now I have put it down to sinus problems (my mum has suffered for decades) However after a recent CT scan, my sinuses were ok but I have a mild deviated septum, which my e.n.t says I need surgery for. .Can a mild deviated septum cause all of these symptoms or is it possible that a CT scan wouldn't have shown the full extent of the deviated septum(my nostrils always seem blocked)???
Had a small child run into my left jaw prior to Christmas 07 but CT of sinuses and L jaw show no infections or break/fracture/dislocate. ENT MD diagnosed badly deviated septum, but this dizziness started in January - never present before. Wondering if the arteries in the back of the neck are still crimped? I get a sensation at the base of my skull as if someone were sucking through a closed straw accompanied by severe dizziness. Not imagining this.
Hi Everyone, In Aug 2008 I had a Deviated Septum Nasal Surgery, I had all the common reaction with tons of bleeding for 1 - 2 weeks till my nose healed. I always felt even after surgery my nose felt stuff or swollen & I found myself having trouble breathing. Well this continues for a few months. On Sept 29th 2008 I spayed Afrin up my nose for the 1st time for 2 spays each & felt really high for a few seconds.
All tests came back clear except for a CAT scan, which showed my having a severely deviated septum. Should I assume this is all from my sinuses, or could this be something else? My blood pressure and any other vital signs are normal ascross the board.
I have a deviated septum and have suffered many sinus problems over the years but now it has become much worse. I have this constant throbbing behind my nose and a feeling of fullness in my head. i also get really dizzy when i lie down or turn my head and my eyes keep geting blurred. I have been to my doctors who prescribes me antibiotics but this doesn't seem to do much good. i also feel as if I want to sneeze a lot but often cannot. Please help as this is making my life miserable.
Saw the ENT, did a CT scan, and said no evidence of infection/just major swollen turbinate.worse on the rt, where I have a deviated septum. Not much fluid, and what's there is clear. Put me on Clarinex to try for a month, if that doesn't work the Singulair plus Nasonex. DOes this sound right? COuld this all be causing the dizziness? I've had allergy testing done and do not have any allergies, but the ENT still feels these meds will help decrease the inflammation. ANy thoughts on this?
I had a CT scan performed, and am currently seeing an ENT who will be performing surgery in a month to fix my deviated septum. About 4 days ago, I came down with what I believe to be a cold (productive cough, fatigue, and nasal drainage). I have been having yellow to dark green discharge from my nose, which probably means i have another sinus infection. My main problem is the dizziness that I have been experincing for the past 3 days.
They showed a sinus infection and deviated septum (no tumors)but he doesn't feel they are causing the dizziness. So he is sending me to a neurologist. I'm scared to death at what he will find. I'm a 44 yr. old white male in good shape and up until now felt very healthy. I haven't had any head injuries. I'm also frustrated and scared that the sinuitis hasn't gone away. Any ideas? I've never been so worried or depressed in my life. Thank you.
I've had 2 sinus CT scans which revealed a deviated septum with a nasal bone spur. In March I had a brain MRI which came back "clean"/"unremarkable". I have also been to a chiropractor would told be I have subluxation in my neck and lower back - have been seeing him for 5 months and still have symptoms. Could it be MS, ALS or a brain tumor?
If you do not respond, the headache does not reduce or if steam inhalation makes you feel worse then you probably have significant nasal obstruction or a DNS (deviated nasal septum) or hypertrophied turbinates. 5. It is difficult to see the sinuses on nasal examination as they are surrounded by bone and their openings are very small and usually hidden. The gold standard investigation is a plain CT PNS (Para Nasal Sinuses) on a multi slice machine.
the dizziness & numb face is most likely all from the sinus trouble-deviated septum & trapped infection. will have surgery & will see if that alleviates the dizziness & numbness.
My initial problem a few months again was a recurrence. I have a severe deviated septum, however I moved and I have been living in the Caribbean for the past year and half and the weather changes apparently have affected my sinuses. Although odd findings, the severe dizziness and weakness were attributable to sinusitis. It eventually settled down and was most likely a viral medication since two antibiotics didn't resolve the symptoms, however they dissipated over 3-4 weeks.
You also may need to undergo surgery for deviated nasal septum. This can relieve recurrent attacks of sinusitis and secondary infection. You need to continue with Anti histaminic against prescription. Sometimes nasal sprays of corticosteroids are useful. Remember, symptoms can be controlled through medication, but you can't get rid of the allergy itself. Close the windows when you sleep. I suggest you to consult ENT specialist. Take care and regards.
Dizziness/imbalance still remained somewhat, so I had a CT scan of the sinuses which showed a very badly deviated septum, polyps, very little flow in ethmoid and maxillary sinuses but no sinus infection. There was no way to tell if surgery would fix my problem for sure, but I had it done and now I feel 100% again (after living for 2 years with fogginess, lightheaddedness, dizziness/imbalance and feeling detached). Please give it a try.
I've had a CT scan of my sinuses and an MRI of my brain. CT scan showed a deviated septum with a large bone spur. MRI was unremarkable, except with contrast it showed that I had a few white matter patches in various places on my brain. I was sent to a balance and dizziness center, who felt that I had something off with my vestibular system based on my symptoms, so started vestibular therapy and was referred to an audiologist.
until I plugged each nostril and found that air flow was strained in one nostril. Later, a CT scan would reveal that I have quite a deviated septum. The point is, I thought my breathing was fine...until I actually tried the nostril breathing test. Wow, was and do I continue to be congested. No wonder I felt good after a cry lol! Blew out all the nasal congestion on account of it. 8-] Best of luck.
Tested Hormone levels blood glucose levels, thyroid total cbc. They were normal. I was referred to ENT- He had me get CT scan, stated I had deviated septum and that I needed surgery. I have had severe dizziness, blurred vision, almost like car sickness.. major headache and was then given Steroid (6) day dose. This helped and I too dreaded the 7th day, which I began to feel worse again. So, I call ENT and they told me to have the surgery.
In February of this year I got a CT scan and the ENT doctor said I have a severe deviated septum with chronic sinusitis. I was treated for a sinus infection and that was it. I still felt bad so I went to a neurologist. He wrote it off as a vestibular problem. I did vestibular therapy for 2 months with almost no relief. In May when allergy season started, everything got worse. I have had nonstop sinus pressure/pain, headache, dizziness, major eye strain, my face is sore, my teeth are sore.
These episodes can last a few days or a few weeks with various degrees of intensity. I have a history of Allergic Rhinitis, Chronic Sinusitis, a deviated septum, GAD, OCD, Hypochindria, Tourettes Syndrome, GERD, IBS, Cervical Arthritis and Panic Disorder. My Tourettes causes me to jerk my head back and forth and side-to-side many times each day and as you can imagine, this is not good when you have cervical arthritis and a bone spur.
Having surgery to correct deviated septum, septoplasty, turbiinate reduction and remove polyps/cysts found on CT scans. Headaches are horrible, pressure on my nose and upper teeth is almost unbearable at times....dealt with this a long time...but finally after ongoing sinus infection for the past 10 months I gave up and gave in to having this surgery which I am very nervous about. Hoping these next 3 weeks pass by quickly so I don't back out again on having it all fixed.
I had my tonsils and adenoids removed, hoping it would alleviate some of the pressure and eyes issues, by maybe improving drainage, though it didn't, and I am going to have my deviated septum corrected. I feel like anyone I explain this to just thinks I'm crazy, no one understands. I don't know what to try next or where to turn.
I had several x rays when I was young and had chronic sinus infections and no tumors or growths or deviated septum were found. It had been concluded that my sinus infections were from allergies, and I had been directed to an allergist for treatment. My concern is despite being treated for my most recent sinus infection I have been left with unusual headaches and dizziness that I would only experience under the cirumstances of a high fever.
They say it is from having a deviated septum on both sides and constant sinus pressure. but it is an awful feeling. i feel like the room is swaying, or i am, and i can't make any sudden movements. it's causing extreme fatigue and sometimes a feeling like i will pass out, i have never passed out though. i feel horrible because ever since this started happening i have not been able to play with my son really b/c every time i try to do something i get dizzy too quickly.
My sinuses also usually feel blocked though 2 sinus CT scans have shown as clear, with a slightly deviated septum. Of course both the times I went for the CT I was not feeling that blocked up as I could not immediately attend for the CT due to work and it was about two weeks later, neither showed anything. I've also had a brain CT which came up clear. Along with this I also have post-nasal drip and the thing that is ruining my life the most, dizziness.
I've seen my GP, a balance and dizziness therapist, an audiologist, and ENT, and a neurologist. CT of sinuses showed deviated septum with bone spur. Had sinus surgery April 2014, with absolutely no improvement in symptoms. MRI was normal, except for white matter patches seen on contrast, which the neurologist said is fairly common, and most likely from previous migraines (I've only had 3 or 4 "classic" migraines in my life).
-GERD and hiatal hernia -chronic sinusitis (10+ sinus infections a year-- I've had 2 CT scans and my sinuses look fine, though I have a deviated septum) -mold and pollen allergies (did sublingual drops for several years, recently switched to allergy shots) -yeast allergy (eliminated yeast from my diet) -Raynaud's disease -irregular periods/bad pms (started taking yaz about a year ago, which has helped) -chronic fatigue -weakness (if I am standing for any period of time, my legs will start shaki
