My son, 28 years, has deviated septum. He has no problem with breathing in the daytime. When lying down, he may breathe partially through mouth.One ENT doctor says he must undergo surgery. Another one says he may have surgery when he faces problems, say, sinusitis etc. I am confused. How can I take a decision in this? Anybody could help?
Tony, You sure need to be careful about getting a deviated septum fixed along with turbinate reduction. I had a deviated septum fixed along with my sinuses opened back in 2004 . Its been a nightmare for me. I'd gladly take what I had back before surgery. My turbinates were not touched. Please take a look at the following site before getting any kind of nasal surgery, especially turb reduction. Not telling you what to do, and I'm not a doctor.
There is absolutely no evidence that a deviated septum leads to oxygenation problems and problems with the heart and lungs. The only reasons to fix your deviated septum would be 1) you are finding it difficult to breathe through your nose 2) you have sleep apnea and fixing your septum may help with CPAP compliance 3) you are having severe, difficult to treat nosebleeds 4) you are looking for cosmetic rhinoplasty (of which a septoplasty may be a part).
I have had pain in my right ear that my doctor said was because my right nostril is almost completely blocked. I have a deviated septum and if I plug my left nostril it is very difficult to breath through my right one. I have seen my doctor and he has tried meclizine and allegra and I felt better for a while and then it came back. I am pretty sure that there is some sort of problem related to my nose, sinuses and ears. I am just not sure what the problem could be.
, morning headaches, anxiety, heart palpitations, uncoordinated food swallow (randomly gasp for air for no reason), constant front head pain/pressure for 3 years,, i have a deviated septum and the ENT also said my nasal mucosa looked inflammed and red, it has always been like this since my head pain started, my nose feels constantly blocked and very DRY not runny.
Hi SparkyIreland, I too have the same symptoms and my doctor suggested surgery to correct deviated septum. Did you have Deviated septum surgery?....If yes, how do you feel now. I mean did all your sysmptoms cleared.

I’m a 28 year old male with acute sinusitis and a deviated septum and my sinus cavities are packed with polyps. When I was younger I had an allergy test done, and I was allergic to a few things, 20 years later, same test I was so allergic to everything they put on me that they had to stop because I swelled up so much. I don’t understand how that could happen that I could be so allergic to so many things in a few years.
I have Paroxysmal Afib (am in sinus most of the time) and would like to have surgery to correct my deviated septum;which impedes my breathing. I take one aspirin a day. I would like to know the impact afib has on this surgery; such as what if I go into afib during the surgery and what about the aspirin and bleeding potential. Thanks for your help.
Assuming you are referring to a deviated NASAL septum (FYI there is a region of the heart called the septum), the answer is POSSIBLY. A deviated nasal septum, when severe, could impair normal respiratory pattern. In some cases this has led to loud snoring and even obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). OSA could cause inadequate oxygenation during sleep, putting extra stress on the heart, which has been linked to the development and worsening of atrial fibrillation (AF).
ENT only told me I had a deviated septum and that he didn't beleive in surgery.. I can't stand this anymore, nothing I do improves anything.. have tried allergy pills, nose sprays, neti pot.. and nothing.. also had a ct scan and that didn't show anything.. also my neck is so stiff and the pain goes down to my shoulders.. starting to really wonder if I have a more serious illness that just no one is able to detect.. All i know is that I can't live like this any longer..
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.
My husband needs surgery for deviated septum, I went with him for pre op. He had the surgery scheduled, but, they called and said his ekg came back abnormal. They want him to see his heart doctor before they go any further. He had a heart attack about 7 years ago. But, has had no problems with his heart since, stress was the main reason of his problem at that time. They said in comparing his ekg from then and now it was different. I am very anxious and need answer.
Your symptoms could be a combination of deviated nasal septum and uncontrolled GERD. You could be having persistent post nasal drip and sinusitis and thus headache due to congestion caused by a laryngo-tracheal reflux of gastric contents. Treatment of GERD is a combination of drugs to reduce the acid and lifestyle changes.
The doctor kinda acted like a ***** and said the damage isn't done from someone hitting you, when in actuallity my bone is messed up from getting hit and my septum is deviated.
In Aug 2008 I had a Deviated Septum Septoplasty out of no where in late September I felt really light headed, trouble breathing through my nose, and I felt like I was going to passing out. The event happen to me 3 times in 3 weeks. Each time I was hopitalize with pefect for vital signs. The light headed spells started getting longer by the day to the point where I felt lighted headed all day & often was concern that I was going to passout and find myself in the hospital again.
You might should go in for a sleep study to check for sleep apnea or ither abnormal breathing patterns or difficulties like your sinuses beings blocked, deviated septum, or just allergy related swelling in your nose. I actually use those breathing strips to keep my nasal passages open. They really do help. You did say you only just started your meds last month and if that is the case maybe the combination of them plus your already existing symptoms has made your life miserable.
Five years ago I also hurt my nose playing basketball. Fearing the corrective surgery to fix my deviated nasal septum, I have taken the above mentioned decongestants for five years. My recent echocardiogram demonstrated severe aortic regurgitation, thickened intraventricular wall, dilated left ventricle, dilated aorta etc. I have not had high blood pressure over this time. Please advise.
Thank you very much for the answer- I will ask the doctor about that condition. I did see an Ear Nose and Throat Specialist last year and I have a deviated septum and they were wanting to do surgery - unfortunatly my insurance refused to pay any part of it and we just couldn't affort the 4000 for the surgery- I will say that from last October-Feb I had quite a few- but since then I've only had one or two.
ALSO, I have a severely deviated septum due to wrestling that occurred in high school, maybe 5 years ago, give or take, I was wandering if that would have anything to do with whats happening here, because i know you are supposed to breathe through your nose, and i often breathe through my mouth. When I breathe through my nose its not as full of a breathe as it should probably be. I often have to take a deep breathe to calm myself and slow my heart, or make it stop beating hard.
There are all sorts of reasons for your nose to get congested from allergies to dry or humid air or a deviated septum. See your GP if you think this is something new that won't go away. Have you been back to your cardiologist for your ablation followup? I went after 3 months and you are about 3 months out. When did you have the monitor? Have you gotten the results from that yet?
No one can say for certain what your future holds but like I said, the heart is very resilient and I think in the absence of heart disease your heart will keep on going despite the pauses. But do talk to your doctor and go and get checked out by a cardiologist if you haven't yet been evaluated.
There are people who have really bad sinuses and maybe even a deviated septum that makes using a nasal style mask a problem, so need to be given a full face mask. Some may have an inset jaw that obstructs their airway, so the cpap may not solve their problem. But otherwise, there are solutions to almost every problem if we persevere.
I have a deviated septum, both sides. a sorta of S shaped septum.
Moreover, years ago, I had surgery for a deviated septum, but now, I feel like I breathe worse. My nose is continually clogged. No real mental issues, but sometimes I experience anxiety and I have an extreme unfounded fear of death, which usually comes out more so at night. I don't have medical insurance at this point, but when I get it, I will surely get a sleep study. At this point, my self-diagnosis is part sleep apnea, part anxiety.
No significant loss of breath (although I do have a deviated septum which often makes me feel as though I can't breathe and keeps me up some nights), and no significantly abnormal chest pain when running or jogging. I am not a habitual drug user, and this was the only incidence in my entire life where I have ingested stimulants recreationally.
Finally, any procedure carries risk. A colleage of mine lost his son to a simple procedure to repair a deviated septum. Those incidents are extremely rare, but must be raised to you when it's time to make a decision. All of us here, men and women have come through it fine, the reward for the small risk is to be able to finally be free of a weight that I had carried for nearly a lifetime.
