Deviated septum dizziness

Common Questions and Answers about Deviated septum dizziness


Avatar n tn I can't even go to the store without sweating and getting dizzy with horrible horrible sinus pain! Is it a deviated septum? One nostril is larger then the other and my nose is crooked towards the left. Never have felt this bad from a sinus infection Please can someone help?
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar m tn 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)???
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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?
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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?
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar m tn 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.
345124 tn?1234486878 OMG this exactly what I've been going through since December. I saw ent she said I have a deviated septum and allergies so my eustachian tube is blocked.! I've been on Claritin and flonase and still feel dizzy with pressure only in my left ear. I get dizzy then anxious . I even went on prize c to help but I went off after 3 days bc of the mood swings. So glad to hear I'm not crazy and others feel the exact same way as me.
Avatar m tn 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.
784382 tn?1376934640 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.
1619590 tn?1302319212 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn it must be a NUCCA Specialist) I had symptoms that I never would have related to being connected. Jaw clicking, deviated septum, chronic sinus issues, pain in left hip, digestive issues, lower back pain, the list goes on.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn The doctor said acid reflux it did help some to increase previcid to 15 X2 a day. My nose is 100% blocked by deviated septum believe this is also a contributing factor. In addition to those symptoms I am experiencing whistle from my nose and wheezing from my lungs no fluid according to the DR.??? I have had two MRI in this time with no definitive result. They continue to try to treat the symptoms but no diagnosis. They act like I am crazy!
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn It started when I had chronic sinus infections and then sinus surgery for a blocked sinus and deviated septum. The left septum never healed properly. I am convinced it was not the fault of the ENT, but that the following factors contributed to my ongoing dilemma: - Exposure to mold due to leaky roof and sub-floor pipes - I treated with an allergist and was highly allergic to mold and dust mites. It helped only a little.
