Nasal blockage with dry nose and no mucus.
My nose is constantly blocked. I have brief periods where some air gets though and it's a relief because I start feeling like I'm suffocating. I pull my face to the side at times and scrunch up my face to get clear breathing for a short time if possible. I've even try bandaids on my face to open up my nose. I recently started taking sudafed and take mucinex dm. I also use saline nasal rinse.
I have tried different prescription nasal sprays and now my nose is dry as well. So I stay away from nasal sprays other than saline.
My ENT suggested the Vivaer procedure. I'm concerned about the feelings of suffocation due to the swelling when I'm already experiencing that.
I heard of empty nose, nasal crippling issues. I don't know how to get relief. I would really like to breathe out of my nose and not think about every breath.
