LOTS OF CHOICES: Yes, there appears to be a newer plastic surgery procedure, but there are otc preps that may prevent the headaches such as butterbur, feverfew, magnesium, riboflavin, and of course, botox. Even a new dental splint is being touted. The headaches could be stopped by using a triptan nasal spray such as zomig (zolmitriptan). See a headache specialist and find a customized approach.

Thick nasal mucus: Thick nasal mucus can be related to sinusitis, but not necessarily. If you have chronic allergies or recurrent infections you should consult a doctor who can identify if there is an opportunity to improve nasal inflammation with sprays or treat infection with antibiotics. You may benefit from good nasal hygiene as well which involves using salt water rinses to clear mucus and allergens.
