Deviated septum and fatigue

Common Questions and Answers about Deviated septum and fatigue


Avatar f tn Would a severely deviated septum contribute to frequent sleep disturbances, and if so would surgery to correct the deviated septum be sensible?
Avatar n tn , 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.
189372 tn?1219836958 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.
Avatar m tn I have been struggling with sensation of lightheadedness or dizziness and fatigue. It is hard to describe. At worst, it feels almost like presyncope but I don't faint. The baseline feels like I am lightheaded. Cognition is intact and vision is normal except during the presyncope attacks. Those can last minutes or sometimes hours. This has been going on for about a year. MRI, blood work and neurologist consultation all were normal.
Avatar f tn Fatigue and shooting pains were the pre diagnosis symptoms. During each round of tx I got more tired, pain kicked up and brain phog came in off the coast (more so anyway). Post tx I went hypothyroid, developed heavy RA symptoms and still have terrible problems with both the pain and fatigue but deal with it by pushing through till I drop.
Avatar m tn It revealed nothing abnormal. I also underwent sinus surgery for a deviated septum and unfortunately that hasn't remedied the problem. Some days I feel better than others, and I haven't been able to correlate it with anything (weather/food/sleep/etc). Are neurological problems likely at my age (28)?
Avatar m tn The sinuses have a vast surface area and hence with the slightest infection and inflammation the toxins are absorbed easily into the blood stream and cause the nausea, dizziness, weakness and fatigue. The post nasal drip can also causes acidity and reflux. 3. Assuming that your underlying condition is allergy, do you have sneezing and watery discharge (rhinorrhea) and nasal obstruction? Do you also have aspirin sensitivity?
Avatar m tn hey everyone so about 3 months ago i became very dizzy in class it felt like the room was moving it lasted about 5 seconds and went away prior to this i already had 2 dizzy spells the first one wasn't bad it was weird had no effect and the second was bad but i slept it off and was fine the third one witch happened in school was the worst since that time i got dizzy in class it felt like my body just got hit with something i couldn't concentrate in class because my eyes felt stiff and if i looked
Avatar m tn I have been having trouble for the past year with violent hand tremors that can sometimes spread throughout my body, especially after any sort of exercise, severe headaches that are not treated by common analgesics, I have to take Profrin tablets and they rarely work, as well as extreme generalized fatigue that is not benefited by sleep and muscular weakness. These symptoms ebb and flow in a progressive matter.
Avatar m tn hi im new to this forum so would like to tell my story, i am a 24 year old male and ive always had allergies to mold and dust but was able to control them, however since christmas i have had constant allergy symptoms LITERALLY EVERY DAY, no break whatsoever, ive been using allergy meds, steroid nasal sprays and neilmed sinus rinse for the past while but no relief, ive developed a pressure like feeling on my forehead above my nose and also below my eyes and the back of ny neck feels sensitive to
Avatar n tn There are only a couple possibilities that you haven't mentioned for which the symptoms match somewhat. One is a deviated septum and the other is some kind of inner ear problem. Did she have some kind of head injury, that it could be a concussion? Or would the car scan rule that out? I'm sorry I don't have any better answers. I hope you can find out what is going on soon.
Avatar f tn And looking at another one in August for Chronic sinusitis, and a severly deviated septum. I saw my PCP today, and he told me Provigil was VERY expensive, $500.00 a month and insurance co would fight it, and even then my co-pay would be out of sight. He started me on a perscription of Bontril. I took one about 11:30 today, and had no problems today at work. I'm excited about this, I sure hope it works. I do have to see him every month to get a refill, as it does have some serious side-effects.
Avatar n tn He did a CT Scan and determined I had an deviated septum. I had the surgery and It didnt work at all. I still have all the same symptons. I'am going back to him on Friday. I'am going to have him refer me to an allergist. I feel so much better reading everyones story. I was convinced for awhile I had some sort of brain tumor. Because of this I have had anxiety attacks. I was perscribed Zanax. When I'am feeling really bad I take one. Wish me luck at the ENT.
Avatar n tn Thank you for the feedback. I had high cortisol levels back in Sept and I also did a hair analysis for mineral testing that showed I had a slow metabolism type and it kept mentioning "adrenal fatigue and hypothyroid". When I got my thyroid results back this week, she mentioned "your thyroid levels look great". I just wanted to get confirmation that I am in fact having hypo symptoms based on my numbers and I wanted to see if air hunger was related.
Avatar m tn I forgot to mention I also have mild nausea and post nasal drip. This is mostly caused by a deviated septum and enlarged Turbinates though. I was actually scheduled to have this fixed on July 16 but had to cancel because of all this other drama.
Avatar f tn -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
Avatar f tn The nasal septum is a plate of bone and cartilage along the center of the nose. A deviated nasal septum is shifted to one side. When your septum is deviated there is less space on the side that the septum leans towards. Generally this area is squeezed. A deviated nasal septum may cause blockage of the sinuses on that side to the point that the sinuses do not drain as well. This can cause swelling of the nasal and sinus passages.
Avatar dr m tn if they have a deviated septum and if allergy treatment doesn’t work, then we can offer a septoplasty. There is also surgery to reduce the turbinates, which are these wing-like structures on the side of the nose that swell when you have a cold or allergy and there’s one other condition called nasal valve collapse that is frequently undiagnosed. This is a condition where the sidewall nostrils of your nose tend to collapse due to just natural weakening or due to previous surgery.
Avatar n tn The stuffy nose always goes away when the migraine is over, although I never really breathe well from my nose, probably due to my deviated septum. I also don’t seem to have a very good sense of smell if that helps. It’s definitely not as good as it was when I was younger. The pain always seems to start in either my nose area or the back of my neck. Excedrin Migraine stops the headaches about 75% of the time, and seems to work better when the pain starts in my neck instead of my nose.
Avatar m tn Sinus has symptoms like feeling pressure on forehead, sinus drainage, fatigue, poor sense to smell and taste, bad breath, sore throat, ear pain etc. You need to undergo detailed evaluation and rule out deviated nasal septum, blocked sinus, presence of foreign body etc. You may have to undergo surgery (drainage and corrective procedure) if symptoms persists. You need to get an ECG, plain chest radiograph and echocardiography to rule out the cardiac and respiratory causes.
Avatar m tn I have a deviated septum for long as i can remember and due to that i logicaly breath through the mouth most of the times(because of clogged nose).But can the deviated septum alone without any other factors like overweight ,could cause OSA? I often wake up with dry mouth like 6/7 days a week but this could be just because of mouth breatjing and sometimes i feel tired even if i sleep much.
Avatar n tn problems in speech or swallowing, visual problems, fatigue and acute or chronic pain syndromes, bladder and bowel difficulties, cognitive impairment, or depression. The initial attacks are often transient, mild and self-limited.
Avatar m tn Worse is I have developed lightheadedness or vertigo ( I am not sure of terminology but my head does not spin but when I walk sometimes I feel like a prankster comes up and shoves me forward or to the side or even up and down.) This then leads to headache and my Bp goes up and I get real nervous....Does this sound familiar? I have been through many doctors many tests. All negative thank god. But negative tests do not make me feel better it makes me a nervous wreck which makes matters worse.
Avatar f tn I had Sinus Surgery in January 2010 which included turbintate reduction and deviated septum repair. They also "Cleaned" out my sinuses. In April 2010, I had a UP3 (uvula & tonsills removed and pallet shaved) for Sleep Apnea and recurrent strep infections. For the last few months I have been very tired (exhausted), no energy and have had pressure behind my eyes (no pain). Have just been having an "off" feeling.
Avatar n tn I was fine for about a month but then in February 2007 I started feeling weakness and stiffness in my legs and when I walked almost a feeling of un-coordination and that my foot would hit the ground but it would take a second before my leg would be stable and I've had a stiff neck, lower back burning and discomfort and some mild balance problems and fatigue.
Avatar m tn Hi, its unlikely that a deviated septum can cause dizziness. Deviated septum can cause problems with breathing, as it causes nasal blockage. Your symptoms of dizziness and lightheadedness, if are relieved by eating something, indicate that you might be having episodes of hypoglycemia. Inadequate sleep can also cause tiredness, fatigue and dizziness. Other causes for these symptoms are inner ear infections; brain disorders heart problems, fever, stress, low blood pressure and anxiety.
382218 tn?1341185087 I'm considering having surgery to correct my deviated septum and am wondering whether this is might be a bad idea in light of having MS. I would think that the trauma might possibly induce a relapse? Has anyone here had this kind of procedure and if so, did it worsen your MS symptoms, temporarily or permanently? I could definitely live with the deviated septum, but it has gotten worse over the years and I often feel plugged up on one side.
Avatar m tn So fast forward to this April... Major symptoms came back and worse this time. The biggest problem has been severe fatigue. I'm just going to list out the rest of the symptoms..
Avatar m tn Six years later we are looking at another drainage, turbinate reduction, and correction of a deviated septum. I also advise sinus rinses, although my child adamantly refuses to do this.
Avatar n tn I'm thinking of getting my deviated septum fixed because i have this horrible nose pain that radiates behind my eye and has been there for the past 2 months. Does it really work?
