Has anyone had symptoms after turbinate reduction surgery that despite having clear nasal passages included feelings of nasal obstruction, dry empty air, not being able to take and feel a deep breath, a sensation of being unable to breathe with nasal and facial pain, an inability to fall and stay asleep and being jolted awake due to lack of airflow, and being constantly distracted by a sense that you are not getting enough air? Have you been treated for this condition and found relief and if so, by whom and what was done to correct the problem? I am in a constant state of hell and need help!

Not a medical professional -disclaimer. Sounds like you have Empty Nose Syndrome (ENS) caused by turbinates being cut off. Go to Facebook Empty Nose Forum. My son has this nightmare condition. The dry, crusting, painful nasal mucosa, lack of sleep, and suffocation are all what he has, plus sore throat and cough from air not being warmed and conditions. Panic attacks from lack of oxygen (yet oxygen tests always register fine). Sorry this has happened to you. We are in San Diego. May help to find others who live near you.
