I have a deviated septum and enlarged turbinates and I think possibly a nasal polyp, what can be done?

Hello. I’ve experienced sinus pressure in the face for many years (I think 8-10). The pressure is right behind the top of the nose and also in the ears. My breathing is slightly restricted. I was told I have a deviated septum and enlarged turbinates and I think possibly a nasal polyp. I’m a classically-trained singer, and, for some reason, singing makes it feel significantly better (although when I’m singing poorly, it makes it worse). Benadryl helps it somewhat (but definitely not all the way) and I do remember the symptoms basically vanishing once when I took an oral steroid (although nasal corticosteroids don’t do much). I can actually relieve much of the pressure simply by pulling my nostrils apart (or using a nasal strip), but that’s obviously not cutting at the root cause.

I feel a pressure on the cartilage in my throat, any ideas what it can be?

I’ve been having a strange sensation in my throat since November of 2016. At first, I thought it was a stomach virus since I was feeling very nauseous during that time. However, when the nausea stopped, I was left with a feeling of throat tightness. I didn’t vomit during that time. It has now been a year, and I feel it occasionally on and off. Sometimes it’s possible to ignore, but other times it’s very strong. It feels like I’m pressing my fingers on the cartilage in my throat (where the Adams Apple would be on a male) and the tight sensation can be felt up to my tongue. It’s not as common, but another symptom I feel is a sort of spasm at the back of my throat. The best way to describe it is the sensation you feel when you are about to gag. But, I don’t gag. It lasts for a few seconds, then goes away.

I can drink, eat, speak and breathe with no problem. For a time, it did affect my appetite, and I lost weight very rapidly due to not eating much. I suspect it might be stress or anxiety related since my symptoms seem to show up when my anxiety starts to act up. My other guess it can be related to heartburn. Symptoms show up also after really bad heartburn. Any ideas what it can be? Thank you.

I’m having a problem with my sinuses, major headaches and nose bleeds?

Hi I’m having a problem with my sinuses and major headaches and also occasional nose bleeds. Sometimes i get pressure on the right side of my nose and the pain causes the right side of my face to swell and my teeth to hurt where i can not even close my mouth. Then with the headaches i take medicines but it might soothe it for like 1hr and come right back 10x harder, also with the nose bleeds it can happen depending on the severity of my headaches. Maybe you can help me. Thank you and have a blessed day.

I am worried I have throat / tonsil cancer, is this cancer or anything to be concerned about?

I am worried I have throat/tonsil cancer. I have 2 areas 1 on each tonsil that shouldn’t be there and I’m not sure how long they have been there. I am 36 year old male with HTN and Gerd. I smoke a pack per day and have since I was 15. My throat doesn’t hurt and I seem to have no other symptoms. Is this cancer or anything to be concerned about? Both things are squishy and painless.

I have an intermittent low hum in my right ear, please advise?

I have an intermittent low hum in my right ear only. It sometimes goes ‘on and off’ when I turn my head from side to side. It also sometimes starts if I press around my earlobe area. Sometimes it is in synch with my heartbeat and other times it is just a continuous hum. I have had my ear checked and my wax is normal levels and there is no damage to my eardrum. I am 49 yr old male.

Difficulty inhaling through nostril, is it a deviated septum from nasal fracture?

On Monday, Nov 20th, I woke up and stood up out of bed to stretch. The next thing I remember is waking up on the floor. I typically run slightly hypotensive and must’ve created some kind of pressure change internally during the stretch. I fainted and fell onto the floor. Thankfully, I did not lose consciousness after hitting the floor and was not alone. My nose, although extremely painful and lacerated, was not deformed. My bf (an EMT) and I (nursing student) assessed the situation and deemed it necessary to seek medical attention at the time (4hr drive away from vacation location). Within a few hours, nasal swelling and facial bruising around and under the eyes became apparent. Although the pain has slightly subsided 6 days later, and the bruising is less, I am now experiencing difficulty inhaling through one of my nares. I am wondering if this is from internal swelling from the trauma done to the soft tissue or if I may have a deviated septum without an external deformity from an unconfirmed nasal fracture?

I’ve had a bump on my eyelid for over a week, is this cancer?

I’ve had a bump on my eyelid for over a week. At first I believed it was a cyst but it won’t subside and is larger. I don’t know what it is or how to deal with it, hopefully it isn’t as serious and will go away but please help me identify what this bump is, the cause and solution.

After the first bite of food, throat will block up?

My son is a 32 yr old 6′ 2″ 195 lb seemingly healthy man EXCEPT sometimes when he eats within the first bite of food his throats will block up. It will constrict causing pain but relax. Sometimes after a minute or more the food will work it’s way down and he can continue to eat but on many occasions the food will not go down. He can not eat or drink anything as nothing will pass he then will have to make himself throw up to dislodge the food. But will not then be able to eat for a long while. This might happen15-20 times a month. He has tried drinking before he eats but makes no difference. He has had the problem for about 8 years. Because of no insurance he has not tried medical treatment. As his mother, I am very concerned for his health. There doesn’t seem to be any particular food that triggers the problem.

I have had an off and on ear infection and now it’s worse than before?

I have had an off and on ear infection and now it’s worse than before. It has caused me flashes of pain. This has been happening for the past 3 weeks. I thought this ear infection at first would go away on its own. I can’t put pressure on the ear or the area where my side burns are located either. I just put a q-tip in my ear and instead of my normal brown earwax, my ear wax is now a greenish color and I pulled out a bit of blood. Should I be worried?

I have an inconstant tinnitus that appeared around twenty days ago?

I have an inconstant tinnitus that appeared around twenty days ago.

i still cannot tell where exactly i hear it. sometimes i think it’s a sound in the back of my head. at other times i think it’s more around my left ear. when i cover both my ears, the first supposition is confirmed, but when i lie down especially on my left side, the second one comes to mind.

if i have to describe the sound, i would definitely say that it is very much like white noise or a very distant cricket sound, the kind of sounds you hear at a quiet summer midday. the good thing is that sometimes it stops and even when it’s there it is not very loud. sometimes i have to cover both my ears and listen closely to trace it back in my head. although when it first started, i remember that it would wake me up late at night or early in the morning. it would be loud and i would find it very hard to sleep.

what really makes me anxious is the cause of the tinnitus i get and why it is not constant as most people i read about have it.
when i first had it i was in a bad place. i thought maybe because of stress and anxiety i was experiencing at the time. then, i went on vacation, and that’s when it first got away and started to get very low. as soon as i came back home, it got back a little bit higher than during vacation and probably as it was before.

i cannot tell if it’s because of the noise, earbuds (usually they are not high but i use them a lot to watch on my computer alone in the room at campus where i spent the last five years) stress, or the act of lying down. i noticed that lying down without a pillow makes my ears stuffed as if i’m under water.

i’m very scared that my hearing will be damaged because of the tinnitus. is this possible? what do you think the cause of this? do i have to see a doctor?

sorry for talking too much. i thought this might help.

thank you.
