Deviated septum lack of oxygen

Common Questions and Answers about Deviated septum lack of oxygen


189372 tn?1219836958 Here are my symptoms, I would like to know if all of these could be associated with a deviated septum, I would love to know of people with similar symptoms who are going to have the surgery or who already have had surgery, and of course anyone else that wants to comment.
Avatar f tn I also have allergies so I wake up with a stuffed nose. Can the allergies and deviated septum be causing the low oxygen? Should I just wear a breathe right strip and use a nasal wash before bed? Starting oxygen at night and a sleep study seems like a lot if it is a simple fix. My doctor is on vacation right now. Maybe I don't completely understand oxygen drops. Due to a ton of blood work and several specialists it is not vitamin related, muscle damage, MS, etc....
Avatar m tn HI NOT TO WORRY YOU OR ANYTHING, but your sleepiness is a sign of lack of energy and oxygen, shortness of breath is deffinatley to do with your heart disease and lungs, as you have heart disease you heart has to work faster than normal which will make you more out of breathe! have you been checked out for copd? have you had time in hospital treatment and had your blood gases done at all?
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 A pulse oximeter that reads saturated oxygen in the blood will confirm your oxygen level and if you do shallow breathe then your oxygen level will drop below normal.(You can watch the level rise as you take deep breaths). It is a long shot, but having your septum straightened 'may' help, as you won't be labouring for air as much and your breathing will be more normal. Hope you can find good doctor to sort it out for you.
Avatar m tn At the same time, they will remove tonsil, adnoids and a Volvo of some sort. They say lack of oxygen, airflow and sleep sre setting me up for anoth heart attack, so therefore the surgery. I've been writing these songs on and off for about 5 years. Hang tough.
Avatar m tn I just took a new PFT test and my breathing is normal. i did have a deviated septum but got that fixed..My lung specialist says its just all in my head and that i have this because ive become aware of my breathing pattern. i've used advair, singular and breathing pumps for asthma with no results. when im sitting or laying down its seems to be fine but when i stand up or move it kicks in more. I'm losing hope on what's going on with me. Does anyone have this?
Avatar m tn I'm also in the midst of xanax withdrawal and when then comes in full force I'll feel insane with lack of air. Years of therapy and medication helped me.
Avatar n tn Learn this breathing exercise and do it everyday, and all of you will benefit, as extra oxygen helps the body to cope the breathing problem.Do not give up, try for at least 6 weeks. Build up your timing gradually.If you feel tired or dizzy, stop and resume after one minute.
Avatar m tn I saw my ENT doctor this morning and she showed the result of CT scan. Indeed I have Deviated Septum and she suggests me to be operated. This Deviated Septum explains excessive mucus in my throat. However, I am still wandering if it causes some bloody mucus in my throat in the morning. For that I worry about my lungs.
Avatar n tn Up until this moment my right hand is still somewhat numb, my head is hurting and I've got weird prickling pains in my shoulders. Could my sinus problem (sinusitis?) be causing a lack of oxygen which in turn is causing my headaches and these weird problems. Also would a CT scan show a lack of oxygen. The main thing I'm worried about is loss of brain functions as my mind seems to be very impaired at the moment.
Avatar dr m tn And hypopnea is restricted breathing with greater than 30% chest wall movement decrease and blood oxygen drop of more than 4% for 10 seconds or more. A pretty complicated definition! The total combinations of apneas and hypopneas for the entire night divided by the total number of hours one sleeps gives us the apnea/hypopnea index or the AHI. This is the most commonly used measure to diagnose sleep apnea.
Avatar m tn My symptoms include dizziness, cognitive problems, memory problems, unbelievable fatigue, headache, eye pain, diarrhea, acid reflux and indigestion. My fear is that my brain has been damaged by the lack of oxygen and sleep. I know that stress, anxiety and depression also play a part but the anxiety and fear are winning this battle. The doctor won't prescribe a machine until he gets my sinus problem resolved. By that time I will probably be dead. I am 47 yrs old 5' 11" tall 180 pounds.
783663 tn?1236204328 The root of the problem needs to be evaluated. Is it because of a deviated septum, is it an airway issue, is it postural issue, etc. You can try many different things, or even go as far as having surgery done. But it is generally best to be evaluated. If I were you, I would start by going to someone who can evaluate me for snoring and if in fact you have apnea as well. At the young age that you are, it is very dangerous. You can find out more if you go to http://top3dentists.
Avatar dr m tn Chronic mouth breathing can not only affect your quality of life, but your life, period. As an ear, nose and throat specialist with years of experience helping people breathe better through their noses, I have seen hundreds of people have dramatically improved lives. One of the most important reasons to breathe through your nose is because of a gas called nitric oxide that's made by your nose and sinus mucous membranes.
Avatar m tn I am not getting enough oxygen and they worry I might have another heart attack if this is not done. They mentioned lack of oxygen to the brain but I told them I wasnt using it so not to worry.
Avatar m tn I will say that although doctors found a deviated septum and swollen turbinates, there has never been a sign of actual sinus infection or post nasal drip, on CT, MRI, or sinus endoscopy. The symptoms have been continuous for 41 months. Did you see the films I posted? To recap: Dull pressure behind my forehead that is deep and diffuse, head feels heavy, with frequent morning headaches that are throbbing with tenderness all over my forehead.
Avatar n tn When the doctor took them out, I sucked in so much air I got dizzy and the doctor fainted from lack of oxygen. Just kidding. I still have a bit of a sore throat and I too had a bit of visual blurriness for a few days. I also had trouble being able to urinate for 5 hours after the surgery. I drank lots of water with lemon juice and that helped. I am very glad I had this done. I no longer wake up with a horribly dry mouth because I don't breath through my mouth almost exclusively at night.
Avatar dr m tn Researchers found that when people with Alzheimer’s and OSA are treated with CPAP, cognition and memory improves. This study was published in the November edition of the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society. They estimated that about 70-80% of Alzheimer’s patients have at least 5 apneas every hour. The authors concluded that CPAP may be an effective tool to improve cognitive skills if someone with Alzheimer’s also has OSA.
209987 tn?1451939065 The only thing that's really bugging me now is this numb/tingly feeling and the feeling as though I'm going to pass out from lack of oxygen to the brain. I can also feel my pulse on the right side of face. Anyone else get this? How long did it last for you?
Avatar n tn I can sometimes get light headed as well from a lack of oxygen. Some days I cant tell I have a problem at all and others I can bairly breath. Doe anyone have any suggestions on what this is or what else I can be doing to improve my condition? Any help is appreciated.
Avatar m tn The allergy tests indicated some allergies, but not anything significant. I also have a deviated septum (I know many people have deviated septums) I changed my diet and took some homeopathic medicines as prescribed, but I didn't get any immediate relief from the brain fog and the sinus infections and eventually I stopped seeing that doctor. I did, however, continue with the diet changes.
Avatar dr m tn Contrary to popular belief, I see many people with UARS who self proclaim themselves as being lazy, compensate for their chronic fatigue and lack of energy by becoming overachievers, being highly productive and creative in everything they do, going non-stop during the day, but crashing at night. They’re also much more attuned to their bodies, being proactive about their health, and taking care of whatever illnesses they have before they become huge problems.
Avatar n tn Boy have I been there. Most likely what's going on is that you have a deviated septum. I have the exact same problem, anxiety, one side of nose blocked and all that you mention. The only thing that will work long term is to have the septum repaired surgically. Not a big deal. Caused by a blow to the nose usually. DO NOT do what I did. I could not deal with the sensation of the blockage, so like you, I began having panic attacks.
Avatar m tn I also found out lack of nitric oxide causes it. This is what is genetically lacking. Also nitric oxide is produced by breathing through nose. I don't because I have a deviated septum. So I will probably have surgery.
Avatar n tn So he tells me that I still have a deviated septum and that I have a lot of scar tissue. He also says that my sinuses are not draining right. So then he says I need to have another surgery. He also states that the headaches might be something else other then sinuses and that the sinuses could be the trigger for the headache. I have the surgery and again I am still having headaches everyday and I have still the constant pain in my cheeks, around the eyes.
Avatar m tn • A defect or injury in the cartilage of the nose, called a deviated septum, can cause chronic blockage in the nasal area. This may be corrected by surgery. • Other irritants can inflame the nasal passages, such as air pollution, cigarette smoke, cigar smoke, and perfumes made from synthetic ingredients. Once again, see your doctor, or avoid the irritants. • Asthma is an immune disease, and asthma sufferers are highly susceptible to sinusitis.
Avatar m tn However, be warned that medical knowlege of dysautonomias (autonomic disorders) although acknowleged that it exists, is very limited amongst general medical practitioners nor is it a straighforward business in respect of the availbility of (or lack of) evidence in general to support any one type of best practice management - which may explain the reluctance of some to test for them in the first place.
748543 tn?1463449675 In simple terms incorrect posture is due to a twisted spine, which barring accidents or skeletal abnormalities- like a short leg, is due to an incorrect position of the skull. The position of the skull is influenced by the position of the lower jaw and ultimately the position of the jaw is mandated by the eruption pattern and final position of the teeth. Hence your bite is dictating your posture. Ever wonder why your chiropractic adjustments don't hold for long?
