Avatar n tn Hi Nasal polyps are known to recur after surgery and can be troublesome. Generally it is not recommended to take Sinex for more than 7 days. Please refer: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vicks_Sinex I understand you have no insurance and hence are reluctant to seek medical advice. However you must not take OTC Sinex without medical supervision. It does act as a decongestant but causes dependency among other problems. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else.
Avatar n tn These medications relieve inflammation, increase nasal airflow and may help shrink polyps.' 'Treatment for nasal polyps may also involve surgery. When medications aren't effective, your doctor may recommend removing your polyps. This is often the only option for people with cystic fibrosis who usually don't respond to steroids. The type of operation depends on the size, number and location of the polyps.
Avatar n tn Im sorry, lol, i put tonsils and by all means meant sinuses. I get the hard balls too, once in awhile, not very often at all.
Avatar n tn Is it an coincidence that on two occassions when my husband has stopped smoking his nasal polyps have flarred up? He stopped about 12 years ago and had surgery to remove nasal polyps 10 years ago. He stopped smoking about 2 months ago and the polyps are very prenounced in both nostils and appeared very quickly. Did the cigarette smoke keep them at bay over the years or is the timing a total coincidence in both cases.
Avatar f tn I was reading some of your questions and i just wanna tell you about my experience. I'm only 16 at the moment but my Nasal Polyps rule my life. I've had numerous steroids, nasal sprays and well nothing worked. I had my adenoids removed when i was young and now an operation every two years is what i face. I couldn't breathe through my nose, coughed up continuous phlegm and headaches left, right and centre.
Avatar m tn Over the past 6-7 years, I've had FESS 4 times, including turbinate reduction and deviated septum correction the first time, and in-office microdebridement of polyps 4 times. Polyps always return. Nasal steriod sprays ineffective. Antifungal rinses ineffective. Daily saline nasal rinse ineffective. I prefer to avoid further surgeries since they treat the polyps instead of the underlying cause of the polyps. Only effective long term treatment has been prednisone.
657020 tn?1238041118 I have read that steroid sprays may help to shrink nasal polyps and I am wondering if anyone might have input as to the best nasal spray for that purpose? I have used Flonase in the past to control allergies. Thank you.
Avatar n tn A scope to evaluate for nasal polyps or other anotomical abnormalities should be untertaken. Surgical draininge of the sinuses is also another consideration if all medical options have failed. Followup with your personal physician is essential.

Please see your personal physician for further evaluation of your individual case. Thanks, Kevin, M.D.
Avatar n tn so yesterday we agreed to do sinus surgery to clear it all out. he thinks that could be sinusitus with nasal polyps in right max sinus and the one in my nostril as well...has anyone ever had something like this? internet gives so much negative and conflicting info and quite honestly its scary as well.
Avatar n tn An ENT can shrink the polyps with nasal steroids, but if that doesn't work, surgery can help.
232690 tn?1189759429 The doctor did a visual inspection and I had nasal polyps. The pain moves around from the base of my nasopharynx, throat, and occasionally in the laryngopharynx. It's lasted about 2 years. A few weeks before I got the chronic sore throat, I had a 3 day-long flu with fever and rash on my chest for a few days. I decided to get a full panel STD test. The first test yielded false positive HIV: reactive ELISA, non-reactive Western Blot. I retested 7 months later and it was negative.
Avatar n tn A couple of times I used other nasal decongestants and didn't develop the rebound symptom effects of nasal spray, but sometimes it happens and the only thing that works is Rhinostat.
Avatar n tn of the mascara goes into my nasal passage because my eyes burn to???? I have been to an ENT, no concern apparently for a CT scan. I have been to an allergist and he seems to think that my nasal area is being compromised by "something"...possibly chemicals??????????? I will post any further info and wish us all luck in finding the never ending solution.
Avatar dr m tn For many people with obstructive sleep apnea, nasal congestion and chronic sinus infections are a common problem. Nasal irrigation with saline is a natural way of clearing nasal and sinus passageways. The Neti-Pot is a yogic variation of saline irrigation that became much more popular after Oprah's recommendation. Many of my patients that have tried this method report good results, with better breathing and less sinus pressure and headaches.
Avatar m tn In the beginning it was mainly chest tightness but now it's developed into post nasal drip which triggers the shortness of breath. I attempted a 5 minute jog + 1 minute of sprinting a few weeks ago and I was on my floor with the nebulizer fighting to breath. All blood work and scans suggest no serious problems. I don't have polyps or anything else that would explain this better.
Avatar m tn Nasal steorid sprays (nasonex, nasocort, flonase) can help slow the growth of the nasal polyps. However, there is no way to completely stop their regrowth - just regular surgeries to remove them Increased water intake and nasal rinsing should help remove the muscus and thus limit the bacterial growth and smell. You would need a neti-pot or nasal rinse bottle which is easy to find in grocery and drug stores.
Avatar n tn The 2 most common causes in adolescents and adults are deviation of the nasal septum and nasal polyps, the latter often associated with chronic allergic inflammation of the nose. A deviated nasal septum can be corrected with surgery. Nasal polyps were, in the past, often treated surgically but at this time treatment with an inhaled nasal steroid, such as Flonase® (fluticasone), can effectively shrink the nasal polyps. You should make arrangements to be seen by an ENT specialist.
Avatar f tn I went to an ENT wednesday, May 8th and he gave me amoxicilin and flonase for my post nasal drip and said I have a sinus infection. I stopped the neti pot and salt water gargles because I burnt my lips and nostrils from doing it too much. Today I still have the swollen uvula and it is swelling up again and my post nasal drip is worse. I have pressure in my sinuses and I have cut dairy, spicy, and hot foods from my diet.
Avatar n tn My Dr ordered a CT scan a year ago and said i had a deviated septum and some nasal polyps. I generally take Flonase. About a week ago the allergies and sinuses really got a hold of me and i had horrible sinus pressure, felt really spacey, had ear fullness and pain, felt a little off but no ear infection. I got put on a antibiotic. I then just started the Flonase back up. One day i felt short of breath off and on. I also took a Zyrtec.
Avatar n tn I use flonase and its useless. Iv'e been on every nasal spray out there by prescription with no help. I use nasal irrigation several times a day to keep the mucus from getting into my lungs. This is miserable Out of the blue tons of mucus will fill my throat and i won't know where it's coming from there is so much.
Avatar m tn If was on antibiotics for 2 weeks, also Flonase...and hasn't really anything. I'm using a netti pod daily now to clear the nasal it's all clear mucous so I can rule out an infection..but mg nasal does feel swollen some. I also have a swollen occipital and neck lymph node the occipital shoots pain occasionally it's very discomforting. Doc said my ears are clear but my right ear closes up when doing anything active. Any suggestions on the lymp nodes or ears?
Avatar n tn Shortly Following an upper respiratory tract infection a little over a year ago, I developed a sore throat, which I pinpointed on the soft palate, up in the nasopharynx where I can not see it. It is fairly chronic: it comes and throughout the day, and I've noticed it get worse if I consume alcohol, though I do not drink often or heavily. I've seen 2 doctors, both of whom said I had post nasal drip and polyps most likely due allergies, though Claritin & Flonase had minimal effect.
Avatar m tn My husband has asthma and uses proventil and also had nasal polyps and uses flonase. He has had 4 lower back surgeries and 2 on his neck. His neck and lower back are fused. Last May he went into anaphylactic shock from taking Aleve (Naproxen). This past January he went into shock again to a prescribed antibiotic, Avelox. A week ago he had an alllergic reaction to the first two pills of a medrol pack..we counteracted it with benadryl melt tabs and shot him with an Epi Pin.
Avatar f tn If I lay flat, there is a wheezing sound, I have had x rays of my chest and they are fine. I feel like I have to clear my throat all the time. What can I do. He put me on a nasal spray fluticasone. It makes my nose run , an nauseates me, This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/235166'>Belching and throat tightness</a>.
