Deviated septum with spur

Common Questions and Answers about Deviated septum with spur

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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>septum</span> 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.
My ENT wants to do surgery because I have had 11 sinus infections this year and my CT scan shows chronic sinusitis. I have a bad deviated <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>septum</span> and nasal bone spur He also wants to use a ballon and enlarge my sinus passages. This all sounds really painful to me. Post op he wants to sent me home with perocet. But I take three perocet everyday for 6 bulging disk and and severe disk disease in my mid and lower back.
When I told my doctor about this he looked in my nose (as he's done so many times before) and this time he said it appeared that my septum was deviated, obstructing my left nostril, and there was a nasal spur on the right side obstructing that side. Is this a probably cause? Could the CT scan have been misread and why wouldn't this have been noticed before? Would getting my deviated septum fixed relieve any or all of my symptoms? Thank you so much for your time and answers!

I am a male in his late 40's with a history of Tourette's Syndrome (mostly head and neck tics - sometimes pretty severe) and cervical osteoarthritis affecting C-4 and C-5 with a bone spur. At various times (and depending on posture or activity) I can hear/feel popping, cracking, crunching and grinding noises/sensations in my neck. My symptoms vary in type and severity depending on many factors such as posture, time of day, engaging in different activities, etc.
Hi, the findings show that there is evidence of sinusitis in the maxillary and ethmoid sinuses, this causes thickening of the mucosa. The deviated nasal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>septum</span> and the spur can cause problems with breathing. This is correlated with clinical findings. If you do have a chronic sinus infection, typical antibiotic treatment is for 4-6 weeks. A nasal steroid spray is also beneficial as well as oral steroids.
What is an osteod ostoma? I had a deviated <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>septum</span> fixed and nasal spur removed last september.....however, it did not correct my left sided nasal/ear problem....I had a tonsillectomy 5 wks ago and have been sick since 2 wks post op...I had way less problems with the septum surgery than the tonsillectomy.....
Now I am in confusion that whether it is associated with nasal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>septum</span> or with lung or with heart?? I did my cheakup with several specialist doctors in India doing PFT, ECG but all things are clear. In accordance with Doctors it is anxiety but truely I don't think it is. Sleeping in Midafternoon is really challening job for me! Please do help and also list me specialist doctors available in India if someone knows.
I've had chronic nose, mouth and throat problems for over 3 years!! ENT docs cannot find a reason. I do have a deviated <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>septum</span> and spur in my left nostril (not the cause of my other symptoms). Anyway, I can't use nasal sprays as I get nose bleeds. What I found myself in the pharmacy was NeilMed NasoGel. I've been using this and it does help a lot to clear up some of the stuffiness and helps to keep my nasal passages moist.
My results of CT was : Right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>septum</span> deviation and Spur..Left : 5mm retention cyst and frontal sinus is underdeveloped..Mild maxillary sinus focal mucosal thickening bilateral both sides and the floor and roof as well. So I guess what happens usually, and do many people have this many things at once.? My Dr. app. next week curious now I do my own research a lot of medical issues and surgeries..
I live in VA where allergies are very prevalent. I also have a deviated nasal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>septum</span> and a nasal spur...I have had progressively worsening symptoms of nasal blockage for about 3 years but last spring it reached a point of constant problems...my septum is also genetic as well as hearing loss that comes with it.... I tested for quite a few allergies of weeds, trees, molds etc...the usual suspected types when one gets testing...I most likely will start injections for this in a few weeks.....
My chronic runny nose began in 2004, about 2 years after surgery for a deviated <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>septum</span>. I think that is what triggered my vasomotor rhinitis, but since it was 2 years after the surgery, I cannot be sure on that. At least I know it is not Cerebral Spinal Fluid (CSF) that sometimes leaks into the sinuses after surgery. I am taking mostly anticholinergic drugs, such as Bentyl and Atrovent, to help it be manageable (dry) when I have to work.
I get like this from time to time. After many scans found out I do have a slight bone spur and deviated nasal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>septum</span>-means its crooked- but, alas it does not STAY blocked up because I alternate out of each side blowing junk out of it and my ENT actually said if it were 100% blocked I'd never breath out of the side thats blocked not blow a bunch of stuff out and then (temporarily) feel better. Hope this helps!

Left inferior turbinate hypertrophy, 3.Right bony spur noted in the nasal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>septum</span>. The E.N.T. surgeon told that the only remedy is Endoscopy surgery, which is the permanent cure. I want to know whether it won't grow again? After surgery, whether my daughter can have normal diet? How long she should be in rest? Whether she can go to school within a week time? Whether there won't be any complications in surgery? that is the side affect of the surgery?
So far I have had sinus CT scan - revealed a deviated <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>septum</span> with nasal spur. Brain MRI came up clean. Been diagnosed with several allergies, mild sleep apnea and subluxation in my neck and lower back. I'm on allergy drops, been seeing a chiropractor for the last 4 months and now have a mouth piece I sleep with for the apnea.
Hello, I'm a 36 yr. old male who began having balance problems (walking but feeling like I might fall down) last August 2006 - went to my primary care Dr. he told me I had fluid in my ear and gave me some meds, that went away and then I began to have headaches daily for 3 months and then they went away.
This is why it is so frustrating, I have had sinus surgery to correct a deviated <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>septum</span> and clear out nasal cavities. After the surgery the PND seemed to get worse, actually it was not even the reason I had the surgery. this problem seemed to be mpre apparent after the surgery. I went back to my ENT and in the scope he did not see anything wrong. I have tried so many thigns that barely take the edge off, I am running out of options.
I have a history of IBS, GERD, Gastritis, Lactose Intolerance, Chronic Sinusitis, Allergic Rhinitis, Deviated <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>septum</span>, Cervical Arthritis w/ bone spur, Tourettes w/ head jerks, OCD, GAD, Panic Attacks and a few others I can't think of right now. I'm middle-aged, don't smoke or drink and don't take a lot of meds. Can anyone relate?. Thanks very, very much for your input!.
Thanks for the reply, the ENT Doc. tells me I have level 3 allergies with a deviated <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>septum</span> and a nasal bone spur - he thinks the allergies are causing the dizziness and that the inflammation from the allergies around the bone spur was causing the headaches. He's giving me allergies drops and the headaches are gone - the dizziness has improved. The tests I would like them to do is heavy metals and Lyme. Although it's reassuring to hear that the disc bulge can be the source of the leg issues.
I have had both MRI's done and no surgery needed but some bulging in L5-S1 - you don't think the Chiropractor knows what he's talking about? Also - ENT Doc. tells me I have level 3 allergies with a deviated septum and a nasal bone spur - he thinks the allergies are causing the dizziness and that the inflammation from the allergies around the bone spur was causing the headaches. He's giving me allergies drops and the headaches are gone - the dizziness has improved.
I also have a Deviated nasal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>septum</span>. I have my sinus CT scans with me. I've tried the full dose of antibiotims a couple of times to no avail. I have constant mucus discharge frequent sore throat issues. Fortunately there's o headache or eye pain. I go through 50 tissues a day. The scan taken as of Feb 2008 showed that I have ethmoid sinusitis and that my turbinates (both middle and inferior) are inflamed restricting the flow of air into the ethmoid sinuses. I find the constant need to snort.
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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>septum</span>, 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.
My ent doc says I have polyps, deviated <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>septum</span> and a bone spur but surgery is questionable. I wish I could give you some advice but nothing seems to help me very much. I am going to see a different ent soon.
This was primarily due to a badly deviated <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>septum</span> and bone spur that had to be surgically corrected. The infections are pretty much under control now, but I still have one big problem. At night, especially when I sleep, I get extremely congested, and I have to breathe out my mouth. Now I have been getting dry mouth (I don't think it's an infection, because I don't see any evidence of that). I also have a very bad dust mite allergy.
I've had 2 sinus CT scans which revealed a deviated <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>septum</span> 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. Went to the Neurologist and he examined me and said I was fine.
I have a deviated <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>septum</span> with a spur, and the spur is in constant contact with the turbinate (and nerve bundle) on the opposite side. So I am in pain almost all of the time. I am making my appt. for surgery this week and am hoping that this cures my horrendous facial pain. This is no way to live. I have to laugh when medicine says, "well, we don't know if sluders really exists". HA!

I have had an MRI of my neck and lower back – came back ok. Went to the Neurologist and he examined me and said I was fine.
I also have a deviated <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>septum</span> with a septal spur and mucosal thickening in the maxillary portion of the sinuses. I also have a perforation in the sinus. I need to know what my next steps are. I have some referrals to a neurologist and ENT. What kinds of questions do I need to ask. I have been getting headaces for about 5 weeks now and that is what prompted the CT.
Anyway, I've had two CT Scans--one of my sinuses that found evidence of past sinus infection, a nasal bone spur, and a deviated <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>septum</span>. I visited an ENT and he didn't feel concerned that what was found was causing my symptoms. The second one was an orbital one to see if there was anything going on around my eyes (as my eyes checked out fine). My doctor said that the radiologist said there is evidence of sinus disease.
