Keep nose open: If the problem is mostly from allergies, then OTC nasal steroid may help. If it is due to a crooked septum, you may try BreatheRight strip or see an ENT to get it straightened out.

I am breathing 15-17 breaths a min but i keep taking deep breaths every couple of minutes cant really breath through my nose feel like lump in throat?

Breathing: Normal adult breathing rate is 12-16 breaths/min. So yours is in normal range. Also we take a deep sigh about 6 X/HR or about once every 10 min. Also, you have a stuffy nose and you are obsessing about your breathing patterns. Read up on "globus hystericus", an example of what's called a conversion reaction, in which when you worry too much you can feel you have a golf ball in your throat. ...Read more

I haven't had a runny nose for almost 2 years, and I often struggle to breath through my nose in certain postures. Why? Any relation to stress?

I haven't had a runny nose for almost 2 years, and I often struggle to breath through my nose in certain postures. Why? Any relation to stress?

Not stress related: My first question is did you get a pet? Cold may also cause runny nose but this is seasonal. The runny nose is probably due to allergies and I see you are on Claritan which is usually for allergies. Stress is not a cause of runny nose. ...Read more

For 2 years I have difficulty breathing. I have shortness of breath & can't breath through my nose unless im sleeping. Have to bend over & breath deep.

Need ENT/ allergy: And pulmonary consults. If everything has been tested and has come back normal but i would recommend that you get a referral to a tertiary care university center for a more high-level evaluation. I can't tell if your ocd perhaps even plays a role in this. You should have your psychiatrist on board with these consultations. Hopefully with everyone putting their minds together they will be able to come up with a solution to your problem. Best wishes. ...Read more

Had a sinus infection for a week. Sinuses hurt but i can breath through my nose now.  Still can't taste or smell anything though. Will they return?

Smell Gone - Back?: The sense of smell often worsens after anything that causes stuffy nose -- a head cold, allergy flare up, or a severe irritant like smoke ingestion. The sense of smell should improve when your nose returns to baseline congestion. If it has not, suspect a viral infection such as influenza or parainfluenza. Go see an ENT to have your nose examined and get treatment. ...Read more
