Could TMJ cause persistent blocked nose /nasal congestion (one side, sometimes both, no snot). Already went to ENT and had mri. Nothing's wrong. No a?
May be different: Although TMJ issues can cause many different symptoms, it's very possible that your upper airway congestion is due to allergy or other non-tmj conditions. Has your primary care practitioner suggested the possibility your congestion could be allergy-related? It is more common for patients with TMJ conditions to complain of ear congestion. Make sure you discuss this with your physician or arnp.See 2 more doctor answers

What can I do as a follow-up for Globus sensations, if I am still experiencing symptoms and ENT found nothing after nasal endoscopy?
Globus: Globus or "lump" sensation is often the result of sinus post nasal drainage and silent reflux. Smoking makes this worse also. Some other causes include Zenker's diverticulum, goiter, stress, neurological disorders. Your otolaryngologist will most likely place a flexible scope through you nose into the throat to assess. Evaluate further with persistent symptoms while treating possible causes.
I've chronic nasal congestion. My ENT couldn't figure out the problem. The only thing that work is nasal decongestants, but can I use them everyday?
Decongestants: Depending the type you are taking and your medical history decongestants can be taken safely. They can be taken everyday as long as you follow the recommended dosages and frequencies. If you have hypertension or cardiovascular disease, you should not take decongestants oral ones. Topical sprays should only be used for colds or sinus infections for 2-4 days then stopped.

Will an MRI of the brain and IAC without contrast show my sinuses? My ENT ordered this exam due to severe nasal congestion and facial pressure.

Neti pots can: Reduce nasal congestion. Mix ¼ tsp salt w 1 cup lukewarm water. More salt can also be used. Place solution in neti pot. Tilt head & pour solution into 1 nostril. Blow nose lightly & spit out any liquid that drains into throat. Repeat on other side. This can be done in the evening before you go to bed & again in the morning. You can watch a video online to get the finer details down.
Start simple: First start with a pure antihistamine to see if allergy may be playing a role. Zyrtec, Claritin or alavert are otc and worth trying. If after a few days there is no improvement then try a decongestant as well. If after a few days you are still blocked you should see your family doctor for a prescription nasal spray either a steroid or an antihistamine. If that doesn't help you need to see an ent.
Quick fix: Although, my philosophy in the practice of my specialty, has always been what is the diagnosis before treating the patient. There are a number of treatment possibilities. Otc Neo-Synephrine nasal spray for a maximum of 3 times a day for 3 days. Sudafed, a decongestant, for 3 days. Rarely a high but short course of oral steroids or nasal steroids. If all of these fail, see an ENT doctor.
Blow your nose.: The best way to get rid of this is to blow your nose and get it out. Sometimes your nose can be swollen from the flu, so nasal decongestants and cough medicine may be needed. Allergies can cause this, like hay-fever in the spring and summer, so a Benadryl (diphenhydramine) might help. All these things help depending on why your nose is stuffed.
