? congestion: Of your nasal cavity and your sinuses can give you the same symptoms, chronic congestion can lead to chronic inflammation and later infection, not sure what kind of MRI you had? Was it direced towards your sinuses or part of head examination which at times shows part of the sinuses not the whole system, get seen by your doctor who would refer you to an ENT, goodluck
