My sinus problem is that one nostril is blocked most of the time, alternating
between nostrils, occasionally unblocked and completely blocked. Had septoplasty turbinate reduction, done nothing at all. Doctors never prescribe anything other than nasonex, which was only effective the first time I used it, then its as if the sinus adapted to it. I use sinus rinse, that sometimes provides temporarily relief. It is really unbearable, it is there all the time, constant discomfort, hard to sleep.
