Avatar m tn 13th, 2007 is the date of the surgery Today is the 11th. I have been taking prednisone for the last few days, I guess that’s to help with swelling and bleeding but I’m not real sure. I take 10 pills a day (50mg) and I find they make me very moody, tired and make me want to pee. Dec. `12th, since I’m going to be bed ridden for a few days you’d think that I would be out doing something, but nope, I’m on the computer watching videos and reading blogs on sinus surgery and septoplasty, geesh.
Avatar m tn Well, messing with it will certainly cause some swelling, which is what everyone is probably noticing (OR, you are being very persistent about it and eventually people just give in and agree with you, lol), but messing with it would not permanently change the shape of your nose. You really are selling your nose short! You posted a reply to my advice 4 days ago, stating you would stop messing with it and give it some time. Four days is not nearly enough.
Avatar f tn no not at all its healing real well it gor thinner inside but is healing now no hole that i can see/reach a small dent just under the bridge which i think is worn away tissue, i dont think i have deviated my seotum it looks out of dhspe from outside but i dont think i got to the cartalidge which is the septum right? just corroded the tissue arounf=d it, im hoping it looks out of shape because of this and will change in time.
Avatar f tn My ENT specialist looked up my nose with a camera and said that he could perform surgery to correct the inside of my nose structurally but he did not know what is causing the pain and did not think that such surgery would make any difference to my symptoms. He recommended that I see a Neurologist. I wanted to know whether it is worth seeing a neurologist about this problem as my GP thought that there was no point.
Avatar dr m tn Not breathing well through your nose can alter your heart rate and blood pressure, as well as to increasing your stress response. Your nose makes about 2 pints of mucous every day. If your nose isn't working properly and mucous isn't cleared, the stagnant mucous can lead to infections such as sinusitis or ear infections. Lastly, not breathing well through your nose can aggravate snoring or obstructive sleep apnea.
Avatar m tn IF YOU DO OTHERWISE, YOU CAN BLOW THE INFECTION INTO YOUR EARS OR THE PART OF YOUR NOSE WHERE YOUR SENSE OF SMELL IS. NEVER BLOW YOUR NOSE AS HARD AS YOU CAN. THIS CAN BLOW THE INFECTION INTO YOUR EARS OR THE PART OF YOUR NOSE WHERE YOUR SENSE OF SMELL IS. Blow very very very gently. Let the gravity do the work of removing the saline and infected mucus. DO NOT TURN YOUR HEAD TO THE SIDE WHEN YOU HAVE SALINE SOLUTION IN YOUR NASAL PASSAGES.
1626584 tn?1299851707 I went in thinking I was going to have to have minor outpatient surgery on my nose for the second time to correct my sinuses, But No. No. Antibiotics and a "you've got"... well thanks but no thanks. I do pee Alot!! but you know weak bladder.. i've had 2 children. I am always drinking ..and thirsty.. and yea sometimes I feel really weird like Im about to die.. and I am nauesous for no reason quite a bit.. But It is what It Is.
Avatar m tn Reason as to why this happens. Deviated septum perhaps? When you breath in the air sometimes hits the internal area of the nose, where it's tender and is just blood vessels so it dries out. So basically have your septum fixed, or learn to love ointment and blowing out scabs. Maybe you're lucky like me and it was just a scab that couldn't heal without cauterizing. A broken blood vessel that won't heal.
Avatar m tn Dam This is good information, I'm 43 years old and have always been in shape,,, I started experiencing the shortness of breath about a year ago, had all the test done and everything was negative. So one doctor told me that i may be having panic attacks and don't even know it.. Bullsh@t is what i said because one of my doctor friends told me that give you that type of medication because they don't know whats wrong with you to make you think it's mental. Hell i know when i can't breath or not..
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?
Avatar n tn you also can add little tea oil tree to your toothpaste just alittle, that would helps kills most the baterica in your mouth even the back of your throat; can less the odor; then you floride your mouth. Then you can do something else. ;) (this is to less the bad breath that food has left on the back of your throat. so it wont bother your family, people that have been around you. I guess this is enough for right now and I Hope everything above would be able to help some of you. good luck.
Avatar n tn If I stop and for 5 minuets or so breath in my nose to the count of 4 and out my nose to the count of 4 I calm way down. Sometimes I really struggle with the first couple minuets then it gets much easier. I know how hard it is but this may give you some comfort. Try to turn your focusing on your breathing into a positive experience if possible.
Avatar n tn My brother has an extremely noticeable indentation on the top of the crown of his head if you run your fingers across it. Our reasoning is that when he was younger (age 4 or 5) he slept on the floor between my sister's & my twin beds and in the middle of the night his head got wedged under a bed frame and the floor.
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.
748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
Avatar m tn This should give your cardiologist a picture of what your heart just did even if you sense that the weirdness stopped by the time you hit the button. I can't diagnose you because I am not a doctor but if what you are feeling happens in a fleeting second and goes away you are likely having pvcs or pacs. They are extra beats arising from different areas of your heart.
Avatar m tn None of them seem to relate to the closure of the windpipe and cant give me a straight answer when I ask them. Has anyone an answer or better still has anyone else had this problem.
Avatar m tn Hey, I hope you feel better soon. I'm sorry to to hear about your surgery and all of the pain it has caused you. People can be incredibly cruel, but they probably don't notice your nose as much as you think. My old roommate's nose was broken about 3 times and wasn't straight, but to be honest...I really didn't give this much thought until she pointed it out.
Avatar n tn i have this nose pressure. that is located on the upper corners on the side of the bridge of the nose inside. its like there is something "pinched" inside of my affected nostril. if things get worst, not only that i felt this pinched or pressure, the affected nostril of my nose also suffer compression!. its like your one nostril was being compressed, so damn compressed that you may think that the hole of your nostril was disappeared. totally blocked.
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.
Avatar n tn -) I kept my lips and the outer skin of my nose lubricated as the constant tissue rubbing makes your nose raw and breathing out of your mouth because breathing in and out of your nose during this time is so painful, your lips get so dry.
Avatar n tn ) I wondered about the wisdom of doing cataract surgery at the same time as retinal surgery, too. The recent medical literature seems to favor it. Since I didn't have a cataract at that time, my retinal surgeon saw no reason to do it. As it turned out, I was very glad that I waited on the cataract surgery. It gave me time to research my options in IOLs and allowed me to choose an experienced cataract/refractive surgeon.
Avatar n tn My ENT did a ct scan of my sinuses and informed me I did have minor infected tissue (ct scan done at the end of a 4 week course of antibiotic) a deviated septum, large turbinates and a Concha Ballusa that is 4 times the average size which he believes is causing my problems and he recommends surgery. Has anyone had a similar diagnosis?
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 I was fine till July 2013 my ENT said I should get a deviated septum nose surgery and modified grommet ear tubes (with hooks in back). I did have surgery hoping to decrease sinus and ear infections. OMG wrong decision. Been having vertigo, dizziness, ear pain, sensitivity to weather changes, vision issues since surgery.
Avatar f tn It is difficult and painful, but instead of blowing your nose, simply dab away the excess phlegm from your nose as it runs. Tilt your head back and let the phlegm run back over your sinuses. Soon, (5-10 minutes, from first aggravation,) the phlegm will dry and your symptoms alleviate. Do not sniff or snort too hard. breathe through your mouth. and do NOT blow your nose. (I know that is difficult because of the excess, watery phlegm.
Avatar f tn my mom does the same thing and it is so incredibly annoying. only things she drinks or anything else that is like liquid.
Avatar n tn left side from below the eye, over the cheek, side of nose, upper lip, and upper teeth and gums. of course i don't have insurance so i can't go to a doctor. yay. this is why i am researching myself. reading this thread has given me some hope i will get feeling back eventually, but unfortunately no one seems to follow up much with reports afterwards. i promise to keep posting with my own follow up reports. so far, most of my swelling is gone, but the numbness remains.
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 n tn i have a temporary solution plug nose and inhale through nose you should feel pressure in your ears but it gets rid of the crackling such a relief at times
