Allergy?

I got sinuses real bad last winter and to this day every day I have a stopped up nose at night sometimes in the day..when I eat it sometimes makes the nose congestion worse. Also, I get real bad pressure on the bridge of my nose between my eye brows like it may bust or something...the pressure goes with my pulse. Do you know what could be causing this congestion or pressure? I don't want a nose vessel busted open...thanks for any info! I will reply god bless!

Hi, your symptoms could be due to sinusitis. Its unlikely that they are related to nasal vessels. The pressure you feel in the bridge of your nose is where the ethmoid sinus is located, this could be inflamed. The best way to get to the bottom of your sinus issues is to see an ENT.  A good examination inside the nose with a camera might give the ENT more information as well as a CT scan of the sinuses.  If it is a chronic sinus infection, 4-6 weeks of antibiotics are pretty standard in addition to nasal steroid sprays, oral steroids, and salt water irrigations of the sinuses.  If this fails to solve the problem, sinus surgery is usually recommended. Regards.
