Nasal Obstruction: See your otolaryngologist. You may have enlarged turbinates, septal deviation, nasal polyp or a combination. If you have a history of environmental allergies, use antihistamines or anti-inflammatory nasal spray that have been prescribed to you or that have worked for you in the past. ...Read more

I have a blocked nose, but it's only on one side of my nose. What could this be?

Constant one-sided headache along with frequently blocked nose. What might this be?

Migraine?: One sided headaches can be migraines and can be associated with nasal symptoms. Also if you have a septal deviation, your one side of the nose is always closed, and that can also trigger headaches. Better to get the headaches checked. ...Read more

What are the side effects of using steroidical spray to unblock a blocked nose? And what's the statistical likelyhood of the side effects to occur?

Very rare: The steroid side effects you read about on the internet come from oral steroids like prednisone, taken in high doses for long periods of time. If you stick with the recommended dosage of nasal steroids, these do not occur. The main side effect is nasal bleeding if you're using it improperly; go to http://www.Youtube.Com/watch?V=9eixeofv_k0 for a video on how to use them correctly. ...Read more

How can I prevent getting side effects like blocked nose&feelin sick from bromocriptine 5mg tablets I only get side effects about an hour after taking?

You will not.: There is not special way to prevent this. You may want to ask your doctor that prescribed this as to what can be done. May be able to premedicate for this such as antinauseant to prevent the side effects. I am not sure what is available in the UK for this. ...Read more

Having bromocriptine 2.5mg tablets for 10 days now &I have already had 2 side effects which are blocked nose&nausea is this normal can I carry on?

Yes, you can...: ...but we don't want the treatment to be worse than the disease (prolactinoma)! It won't do you any serious harm to continue with low dose bromocriptine, but nasal congestion and nausea suck! Ask your doc for a trial of cabergoline. The mechanisms are the same, but cabergoline tends to be better tolerated. Good luck! ...Read more

Had right side maxillary cyst removed 2013 all was fine until I started getting a constant runny/blocked nose and sinus infection after another ?

Had right side maxillary cyst removed 2013 all was fine until I started getting a constant runny/blocked nose and sinus infection after another ?

Sinusitis: Unfortunately, just because you had a maxillary sinus cyst removed does not stop you from having issues with allergies and/or recurrent sinusitis. You need to have a thorough allergy evaluation and should be sure that you are being given appropriate antibiotic and adjunctive therapy to help reduce or eliminate sinus infections. You should see an ENT/allergy doctor for thorough evaluation. ...Read more

Iam having blocked nose , mucous coming through mouth , pain in the head that keeps changing from one side to another, blocked ears, lasting3yrs?

Allergic Rhinitis?: Given the three year length of your problem, it sounds more like allergy than infection. Have you consulted with your pcp or an allergist? Have you had a trial of a long-acting antihistamine such as loratidine? Your problem could be allergic rhinitis. ...Read more

Pressure on the sides of my head and above my nose/forehead. Blocked nose, post nasal drip, lightheaded (sometimes i.e walking fast, exercise, work)?

See your physician: There are many types of headaches (migraine, tension, cluster) and many reasons for each type. Alternatively, you could have sinus or other issues. It would be helpful for you to keep a log of the frequency, duration, location, and intensity of your headaches, along with associated symptoms, and take it to your physician. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/headache.html ...Read more

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?

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. ...Read more

33week preg,blocked nose,pain on temple,worse when bending, jaw ache and cheek bone ache,aches down side of neck too and abit when swallowing?

Sinusitis: This sounds like sinusitis and it is necessary to see your obstetrician or physician/provider taking care of you during your pregnancy. You must be screened for strep pharyngitis! This is treatable in the third trimester using safe medications. You might want to try nasal saline initially or if you feel brave, a neti pot using sterile saline. ...Read more

Sore throat runny nose blocked nose sneezing coughing had it for 3 days now. 3 week ago had jaw surgery my right side- teeth hurts I little.

Normal: The recovery time for jaw surgery can easily surpass 3 weeks. Be patient. At the same time, you are still susceptible to colds, allergies, etc. Also, it is normal for your teeth to still hurt. When in doubt, CALL YOUR SURGEON. We like to be kept involved in our patients recovery process. ...Read more
