538090 tn?1213811712 I haven't experienced much relief yet, but it's only been 8 days so far. They only way to fix a deviated septum is surgery. Without the surgery it can cause a lot of sleep problems, sleep apnea, disturbed sleep patterns, dry mouth. Lots of complicated problems. I'm still swollen up at this point. I use the Nasal Rinse 6 times a day. am taking antibiotics, steroids, which are awful, and steroid nose drops, as well as Vicodin for pain.
Avatar n tn I would not recommend snorting any more coke tho
Avatar m tn Having sinus problem most of my life, it’s the last few years that have been the worse. I’m a 28 year old male with acute sinusitis and a deviated septum and my sinus cavities are packed with polyps. When I was younger I had an allergy test done, and I was allergic to a few things, 20 years later, same test I was so allergic to everything they put on me that they had to stop because I swelled up so much.
Avatar n tn The doctor kinda acted like a ***** and said the damage isn't done from someone hitting you, when in actuallity my bone is messed up from getting hit and my septum is deviated.
Avatar n tn (hope i got the spelling correct) Anyways, he said that my right-side was blocked completely and it would be advisable to do the surgery and I would breathe much better if I go thru the surgery. I decided to go thru. The surgery in itself was painless. The 1st week of recovery was not bad either. The only irritating part was the splints. Once they came out, it felt like heaven. The 1st couple of hrs after the splints were removed, were very good. Then it started going downhill.
Avatar f tn It is always good to know all these things even tho along the way they may not seem like a big part of our issue.... Good luck with the Neuro....
Avatar f tn my sinus surgery i had my deviated septum fixed and lots of polyps dug out. so any advice given would be highly appreciated on my previous post. i get so worried.
Avatar f tn A vitrectomy was performed, with the expected difficult (face down) recovery period. Although the macular hole is now closed, my vision has made very modest improvement. Fine focus has not returned. You can imagine the degree of concern I continue to have in wanting to maintain healthy function of the right eye. My quality of life has been curtailed, and I want to avoid any further deterioration. I am 63 years old and have overall excellent health, with an active lifestyle.
Avatar f tn One before my sinus/septoplasty surgery, and one after recovery period. I flunked both of them. They repeated the test in case the deviated septum was causing the breathing problems.....it wasn't. My FEV1 is 73% predicted, with lung age of 78.2 years. I'm 61, type 2 diabetic, degenerative disc disease, degenerative oste-arthirits, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel, allergies....and yes, I''m a 2 pack a day smoker. Bad Me. Are these results enough to diagnose me with COPD?
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 also have a chronic sinus infection. I'm in my 4th week of Amoxacillin (3rd AB) and tomorrow getting a CT scan. I broke my nose 6 years ago and didn't realize that's when me "allergy" symptoms started. I have a deviated septum and I'm not significantly improved after medical treatment. I've been irrigating my sinuses 4-5 times a day with a pulsating irrigation system. Prior to seeing an ENT I tried elimination diet for 6 months, not eating wheat corn dairy or peanuts.
Avatar n tn I'm a 25 y/o female normally well, I had surgery in late June to correct a deviated septum and ended up with post op Infection. I was put on co amoxiclav antibiotics for 5 weeks. Since stopping the tablets I've been getting awful pains in my Lower right abdo, cramping, spasming, burning, gurgling. I've been back and forth to my docs since august & one doc suggested ovarian cysts butto keep an eye on it. I have even been admitted to hospital for possible appendicitis.
125112 tn?1217277462 lol What can you do, when you don't understand and yet, understand too that there isn't much you can do? It sounds like you and I may have similar nasal problems. I have a deviated septum (from what I have read, most people do and perhaps, some worse) but I have a nasal spur that blocks off nasal drainage. I asked my doctor if mine came from having been punched in the nose in 8th grade. He said it was quite possible. Most of the drainage runs down the back of my throat too.
Avatar n tn Thanks for the assuring reply. Tomorrow, I'll find out if I still have a job. The surgery Friday will proceed as planned. However, depending on when the second surgery can be done I may not be able to have it covered under insurance. I have gotten very good feed backs about my surgeon and the clinic. All the surgeons are affiliated with the University in a professorial or consultative role. Two surgeons that I have spoken with both agreed that vitrectomy is highly recommended in both eyes.
203003 tn?1210859507 It is important that you get tested for allergies before you have this surgery. I also had a deviated septum from a broken nose in my teens that didn't heal correctly. Please also check into chemical sensitivity. I am one of those people too that can get a strong sinus like headache from certain scents: Inscense at church, certain candle scents, fresh flowers with the pollen still attached and certain musk perfumes.
Avatar f tn the pressure behind this ear is unreal! My tinnitus seems a little worse too.. I have a deviated septum (I don't know if this was caused when my EX broke my nose) but my snoring is so much worse. Jake said I woke him up this morning because I was snoring so loudly. I have noticed that I have a lot of nasal mucus too. I know that this does happen after surgery, but I think I am going to see if my PCP will refer me to an ear, nose and throat specialist.
299940 tn?1192322967 After many doctors thinking I was just looking for drugs, or I was imagining it, I was enough of a thorn on the doctor's side to eventually be referred to a neurologist who did a brain CT scan and found nothing, because the scan stopped at the top of the maxillary sinus!
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 n tn Did your ENT recommend surgery for the severe deviated septum? I had sinus surgery in 2003 and only have had 2 sinus infections since. You may want to talk to your physician about septoplasty surgery and ask him if that would help. Also, before I had the surgery I used J's Nose Drops (available online) and that got rid of all of my sinus infections. There is also another product called "Bi Yan Pian" that works. It is also available online and very cheap.
Avatar n tn Most recently, I've had cataract surgery on both my eyes. Upon recovery from the cataract surgery, when my doctor (ophthalmologist) was examining my eyes, he found that my optic nerve is swollen and immediately sent me to other doctors who agreed that it was swollen and told me I need to see a neurologist right away and the swollen optic nerve meant an increased level of pressure in the brain.
Avatar f tn Such as you or me I presume. Maybe you had the wrong surgery first? Maybe your deviated septum was the cause of your pvc's? Not getting enough oxigen under severe exercise then coupled with a sort of apnea on a night or two during the month causing a pvc's bout the next day under normal conditions...who nose's? Hospitals are for profit as are most Dr.s nowadays. Lemme check that colon, yes we removed a polyp, we'll have it checked for you..wink wink cha ching. Any a-hole will have polyps.
Avatar n tn sorry ahead of time for the long post! i too, have had a problem with these, however, my case hasn't been so cut and dry! i started with them in december 2006. i had a sore throat, looked in and saw one. went to the doctor, he said strep causes these things and gave me an antibiotic (test confirmed it). i had strep on more time in 2007 with no white spots. in february 2008, i had a sore throat, looked in, saw my whole right tonsil covered in them! went to the doctor, told it was a cold go home.
Avatar n tn Did you ever get your feeling back or have surgery? I Had surgery 10 days ago and I still have numbness R nose area, upper R lip and teeth. I have a lot of tingling with sharp pains and I guess that is good.
Avatar n tn I too have this problem which happened immediatley after surgery to remove my gallbladder. It happened every 5 mins, then eventually 15 mins, 30 mins etc now its hourly. I mentioned this to my doctor who said that the surgeons must have damaged my diaphram, and that it will hopefully settle itself down. If not they would need to intervene, but he did not elaborate on what that meant!!.
Avatar n tn I have craniofascial distortion, with jaw misalignment and a deviated septum. I have evidence from the literature that links all of this to the inheritance of SBO and tethered cord. Maybe it is quite common ?? .
Avatar n tn I've heard of a lot of people being like this this year. I don't have a deviated septum and Dr. said I didn't need surgery...but if it would help me I would try it! How do you get a deviated septum? And...why are you having problems now from it and didn't before? These are questions I'd ask. I'm also thinking my immune system was run down due to so much stress in my life recently which wouldn't fight this. I, too, was thinking I had a SERIOUS illness. Now I'm feeling better.
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 I had tonsilectomy 2 weeks prior the click started and I feel that this click is the after cause of the surgery. Of course ENT will say that everything is fine, because he is the one that did the surgery... I keep touching my wind tunnel and pushing it with my fingers to the right, something clicks, then after I swallow next few times there is no click and then it comes back again. Very tired of this clicking sound... Don't know if it ever will go away.
