Used nasal rinse today for post nasal drip and now my nose by my eyes has feeling of pressure. Normal? Did I do something wrong

Used nasal rinse today for post nasal drip and now my nose by my eyes has feeling of pressure. Normal? Did I do something wrong

No: Saline entered a sinus cavity behind the bridge of your nose, the pressure will dissipate. It may help to treat sinus congestion to facilitate clearance. Afrin (oxymetazoline) otc can be helpful, but should be used at physicians discretion and not for more than 3 days (unless instructed to do so). Also, try the squeeze bottle for saline rinses, it allows better control of velocity of rinse and can use upright ...Read more

I was hit in the face recently and now when I blow my nose my eye moves like outward due to the pressure, why is it doing this?

I was hit in the face recently and now when I blow my nose my eye moves like outward due to the pressure, why is it doing this?

Emergency problem: After facial trauma to eye sockets or the sinuses, a person SHOULD NOT blow her nose. If she blows her nose, air and bacteria can be forced through the cracked bones and into the space behind the eyeball, thus pushing the eyeball forward. Bad things like and infection behind the eyeball and even blindness can happen. An eye MD doctor and an ENT doctor should evaluate now; or one can visit the E.R. ...Read more

When I blow my nose liquid squirts out my eye. I have read various cases of this, however, I have I.I.H so I worry it could be increased pressure..

When I blow my nose liquid squirts out my eye. I have read various cases of this, however, I have I.I.H so I worry it could be increased pressure..

Squirting eye: 1st, it is probably normal. EVERYONE has tiny tubes the carry our tears away from our eyes and down into the nose aided by gravity...That's why our nose runs when we cry. If you blow your nose and that pressure pushes from your nose backwards, that pressure can push the tears backwards and back where they started, in your eyes. Then they have to start that journey all over again...So relax ...Read more

Been having pressure n my face between my nose & eyes runny nose, cough, lightheaded when blowing my nose it's kinda green alil? No fever no aches!

Been having pressure n my face between my nose & eyes runny nose, cough, lightheaded when blowing my nose it's kinda green alil? No fever no aches!

Good old cold!: Sounds like you have a good ol' cold. Congestion from the cold gives that pressure feeling, and the drainage can cause the cough. Kinda green means the body is sending white blood cells to fight the infection - that's a good thing. Since no fever or aches, doubt influenza or sinus infection. Wait 10-14 days with symptomatic care (humidifier, saline rinses of sinuses...) and if not better, doctor. ...Read more

Head pressure, pressure on my nose. It becomes heavy when I change my position. I hv checked blood pressure. Its normal. Is dis anxiety. Or survical?

Rhinitis: It sounds like you may have a component of rhinitis (congested nasal mucosa) and/or sinusitis. Lying down usually makes this worse. A decongestant like pseudoephedrine, especially when combined with a non-sedating anti-histamine (like cetirizine) is often very helpful. Also propping up your head on 2 pillows can help. Dust and allergies make it worse so meticulously clean your sleeping area. ...Read more

Now further pressure behind eyes and eyebrows but a friend tells me warm liquid feeling isn't normal sinus issues, it's in the back of my head.?

Now further pressure behind eyes and eyebrows but a friend tells me warm liquid feeling isn't normal sinus issues, it's in the back of my head.?

Not to worry: ONe cannot feel eye pressure as " behind eyes". Likewise, increased mass or volume in the orbit that might push the eye to be more prominent is not felt as pressure. Changes of any sort in the back of one's head cannot be felt as pressure in the eyes. Severe sinus issues can make one uncomfortable and can effect the orbit and eye; these should be checked by a primary physician or otorhinolarygo ...Read more

What is the best way to relieve sinus pressure in head. Have a cold and when I blow my nose I feel pressure in back of head and all over?

Sinus rinsing: Nasal rinsing/neti-pot saline rinse is a very effective FIRST line remedy for acute sinus issues (I usually recommend chitorhino (chitorhino. Com). You may want to consider a short course of nasal decongestants like Afrin or neosynephrine - but use these for no more than 3 days.

A "cold" that lasts more than 7-10 days is a sinus infection by definition - antibiotics are needed at that point. ...Read more

Is it normal to have trouble breathing out of both nostrils 3 weeks after ESS? Nose is sensitive to touch, head pressure, dry nose, low sense of smell

Breathing: Swelling in nose takes 6-12 weeks to subside. Airway will most likely get better in 6-12 weeks. Sensitivity is normal. If very tender, may indicate infection. Abx may be indicated.
