Deviated septum: Surgery if deviation is affecting exercise, sleep, activities of daily living,, etc. The nose has a normal. Breathing switches (becomes more prominent) from side to side every 4-6 hours. Should notice this during the day when breathing thru nose becomes more difficult or having to sleep on the more obstructed side.
