Hear me out first. As long as I can remember, I've never been able to breathe clearly out of my nostrils. At all times it's always one one side of the nose clear and the other blocked, or both half blocked. Could this just be allergies or? What could this problem be?
I would get a CT scan done to see if any bone structure or blockage is causing the issue but also nasal lining can get inflammed so it may not be an actual structure blocking it. I get like this from time to time. After many scans found out I do have a slight bone spur and deviated nasal septum-means its crooked- but, alas it does not STAY blocked up because I alternate out of each side blowing junk out of it and my ENT actually said if it were 100% blocked I'd never breath out of the side thats blocked not blow a bunch of stuff out and then (temporarily) feel better.
Hope this helps!
My ENT has offered to correct these minor issues (he said my case is minor) w/ surgery but I am trying to wait on that, as he actually opens up "windows" in your head by breaking apart the bones. Sounds too extreme to me though!
Ahh, I wish I would of known this when he literally just sent me out to get a CT scan done on my throat 3 weeks ago! Haha. It was a bit pricey, paid with cash because with my bunk insurance it would of been even more going that route. Blowing out the blocked side doesn't really do much at all, though, it still remains 90% blocked. A buddy of mine had a deviated septum and gone through surgery for it, and he's SO glad he got it done. He said that the surgery itself isn't painful, but the recovery is a bit painful - but, it's changed his everyday life 100% he says. I honestly don't even mind my nasal problems, but I do when it comes to recording - because I can't rely on a good vocal run all times of the day, luckily I have my own home studio so I can record whenever. But yeah.
