My nose has become increasingly blocked over the past few years and is causing great discomfort and breathing problems. No pain, just extreme nasal tenderness and just lately pressure to the front of my head and eyes. It is also causing a painful throat because of inhailing dry air. I have tried the following: Sinus rinses, various nasal sprays on prescription, visits to consultants which included numerous camera insertions. Food intolerance tests, allergy tests, accupunture, reflexology, leaving all dairy and wheat out of my diet and all to no avail. I was told 9 months ago by my ENT consultant that my nose wasn't really blocked but that my brain was sending false messages. I have tried to put up with the situation but life is becoming increasingly difficult and I can't understand why I am in such discomfort if this is really the case.
