Hello, @sp8239. Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I'm sorry to read about your symptoms and struggles.

While we wait for other members to respond- I'm interested to know what your sleep study results revealed and when is your next appointment with your ENT? Are you thinking about having your deviated septum fixed?

Dec 12, 2018 · Blockage in Sphenoid Sinus Causes Daily Headaches in Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT)

Hi @sharlynn62, have you made any decisions about surgery yet? I would like to introduce you to @czechmate, @tuckerdoodle, and @huronshores, All connect members whom have mentioned sinus surgery.

Also, here is some sinus information that Mayo offers on their webpage. -https://www.mayoclinic.org/departments-centers/rhinology-nose-and-sinus/overview/ovc-20426855

I think researching surgeons that have completed multiple sinus surgeries and looking for facilities that work closely with ophthalmologists should be a big part of your research.

Have you spoke with an ophalmologist to discuss potential risks with a surgery like this?

Dec 7, 2018 · Vivaer nasal valve remodeling and Empty Nose Syndrome? in Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT)

Hello @healthiswealth1, Welcome! Thank you for posting. You will notice that I merged your post with another to discuss Empty nose syndrome. Please virtually meet @warpedtrekker– 🙂

Can I ask where you live? Do you have access to visit Mayo Clinic in Rochester? The reason I ask is the Rhinologists here work closely with Allergists and Pulmonologists. Maybe that's something worth looking into?

Hello @karissa20, Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. Thank you for posting. I'm sorry to hear you have gone through this.
