In the United States, almost one in four adults suffer from chronic nasal congestion every day and of that group, 85% say that it negatively impacts their ability to function in a normal way. That means a lot of people can't breathe correctly. Some of the impacts it has on their life include disrupted sleep, fatigue, decreased smell and taste, headaches, and being able to enjoy activities outdoors. Some of the most common causes are:
- Nasal polyps
- Deviated septum
The most disturbing fact is that half of the people in a study who admitted to chronic nasal congestion didn't go to a doctor to find a solution to their sinus problems. Residents of Coral Springs, FL are no different.
If you have tried all the home remedies that can help with nasal congestion, it is time to talk to your ENT about the options they offer. Allergy medication can help and if the reason is nasal polyps, removal of the polyps will offer relief. Taking care of any infection offers relief, as does correct a deviated septum. One option Dr. Madasu is an expert practitioner of is Balloon Sinuplasty, which is an endoscopic procedure that uses a balloon to open up clogged sinuses and allow normal drainage.
Sinusitis is chronic inflation of the nasal passages. It usually follows an infection of some sort and can last for years. It can be caused by bacteria, a virus, and even a fungus. With sinusitis, the pain in your face may be around your eyes, your cheeks, and your forehead. If the cause is bacterial, your ENT may recommend an antibiotic and then an inhaled steroid to bring down the swelling. A prescription for decongestants may help to relieve some of the symptoms. If it doesn't respond, surgery may be the solution.
