Deviated septum lack oxygen

Common Questions and Answers about Deviated septum lack oxygen


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 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 When I get a bad cold I'm sometimes hospitalized because my O2 stats go way below normal, like 76-79%, then I get seizures. Lack of oxygen to the brain hence seizures. But that happens fairly rarely. I'm on oxygen, but I rarely use it, only when needed. I understand that I'm fairly sick, but I've lived and coped with my "sickness" all my life. I'd like to say to all of you people who low O2 stats, don't let it rule your life.
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 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 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.
Avatar m tn Go in for surgery on 4-16 for a deviated septum, they want to biopsy some nodes, nodules, or boogers on the other side of the nose. 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.
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 m tn Surgery will be removing tonsils, adenoids, and a Volvo-ectomy (or something like that) and the they move uphill where they fix a deviated septum and biopsy some suspicous nodes or nodules, (i.e. boogers) they saw in my nose. 6-10 painful recovery days they tell me. 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 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 dr m tn Do you feel like you can never get enough oxygen into your lungs? Do you feel tired all day no matter how much sleep you get? Have you tried various home remedies, over-the-counter medications or even prescription medications with no help? If you answered yes to any of the above, what you will read below will show you how critical it is to breathe well through your nose. Chronic mouth breathing can not only affect your quality of life, but your life, period.
Avatar n tn I finally saw an ENT that recommended the procedures mentioned above because over a very deviated septum and a enlarged turbinate. I had the same sentiments as brokenbytears a few days after the procedure. The third and fourth days after the surgery were pretty rough. The I had a Lortab prescription for the pain that did the trick for me. The sore throat from the breathing tube put me on a diet of Slim Fast and room temperature chicken broth.
Avatar m tn ) It was suggested that maybe I have chronic sinusitis. 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?
209987 tn?1451939065 For the past 6 days now, the right side of my nose ( the side that has a deviated septum ) has been numb and tingly. It feels like there is no blood getting to my brain on that side. When I breathe out the air is hot on that side. I constantly feel on the verge of an anxiety attack because of this. My ears are popping, and the sinus rinses over the holidays have only made things worse. There were about 4 days there where i couldn't breathe because I was so congested...
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 m tn I am 57 yr. had problems since college. I had an attack during nuclear die stress test. Clear followup on heart cath. My aorta spasms right below my sternum. For years I have been told it is severe heartburn, acid reflux etc. it is a severe burning and knife like pain. It feels like the alien is coming out. Found out that Jewish Hospital in Cincinnati is doing research as to genetic connection. They are prescribing l' arginine, an amino acid.
Avatar n tn Also I've heard very poor things about the doctor, my uncle actually had him do surgery for a deviated septum which was unsuccessful. I booked an appointment with my doctor on monday who told me over the phone that my blood test and CT scan were fine. 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?
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 dr m tn They pointed out, however, that it’s unlikely that OSA causes dementia, and that the lowered oxygen levels and sleep fragmentation is what can aggravate poor cognition and memory loss. I disagree with the last statement. The fact that 70-80% of Alzheimer’s patients have OSA is a very high figure. The minimum criteria for a sleep apnea diagnosis is 5 apneas or hypopneas per hour, and each episode has to last longer than 10 seconds.
Avatar dr m tn Sometimes what we’ll see is a deviated septum or nasal congestion due to allergies but more commonly what you’ll see is when we look in the mouth, the back of the throat is very narrow and you’ll have a very large tongue that sits very high up, covering up the uvula, the little thing that hangs down in the middle of your throat. The next step is to undergo an endoscopic evaluation, meaning that a small, tiny camera is placed through your nose and your airway is visualized.
Avatar n tn I have a slightly deviated septum which totally cuts off my breathing through that side. It leads to very mild headaches and pressure over/under eye and behind my eye. Claritin used to help clear my nose, but it's been inconsistent of late. Afrin/Nasalcrom seem to help clear me and some of the other issues like the eye/head pressure subside. I have another ENT appointment scheduled for 6/5, my first visit in over a year.
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 m tn I've been diagnosed with everything from maxillary antral disease to deviated septum to panic disorder to seizure disorder, to allergic asthma, to farsightedness, nearsightedness, bilateral stigmatisms and a lazy eye to life long untreatable post nasal drip to migraines to agoraphobia to unexplained insomnia to unexplained rapid heartbeat to unexplained chest pains. AND THEY TOLD ME THERE WAS NOTHING ANYONE COULD DO!! It's sooo frustrating to be fighting your own body for your health.
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 n tn Hi,Ihave had cronic sinus problems for years,partly I believe is hereditary,my father and grandfather had sinus problems as well,and also because I was born with a cleft palate.Because on the deviated septum this adds makes drainage of the sinuses almost impossible.I also get allergies in the summer and fall.All the nasal sprays,ect,don't do much for me.I found it interesting to hear about other people getting the "brain fog" you mentioned as I get this a lot.
Avatar n tn Therein lies a BIG problem. The involuntary breathing takes over when we are asleep, deprived of oxygen (hypoventilation) or have excessive oxygen (hyperventilation). Most of the time we simply ignore our breathing and let the involuntary system take over. Therein lies a BIG problem.
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 n tn I have a history of migraines and chronic sinus problems (I was once told by an ENT that I have very large sinus cavities) for approx. 25 yrs. I do have deviated septum which was once corrected with surgery but now has gone back to its original state. For the last 6-9 months, my headaches come almost every day. I take three Excedrin Migraine, or if at night and worse I take Darvocet with Promethezine (generic for Phenergen - to prevent nausea).
