Dear Dr, hello, i am a chronic sufferer of blocked nose. When I sleep on left side left nostri gets blocked and after sleeping on right side back left gets open. In day time both nostrils get blocked. Mostly dry coryza, some times white thichk tenacious discharge. Fade up completely with the condition. I m help and relieve me of this distressing disorder. The trouble is prominent in winter. No smell no test. Keep coming and going( both) cant cover legs at night, gets uneasy. The trouble is about 15-20 years old. Head feels heavy. Sneezing infrequently. Likess spicy snd sour. Likes moderate temp.
Ok, my polyps were sooo bad they were almost out my nostrils.
I went in and had the operation and got them removed. I was told “they will come back,,,,,its not a question of if they’ll come back, but a question of when”
Sure enough, about 1 year later, they came back and were just as bad as before the op.
I got a chest infection and the doctor put me on prednisalone and they shrunk. The doctor didnt know thats the effect they would have and was pretty shocked.
They came back a little bit more, and I was prescribed with a nasal spray called “Avamys”.
The polyps have completely gone and I havent had them for about 2 years now.
Didnt change my diet.
I havent even needed to use the avamys for over 6 months now as they’re completely gone.
