I am not sure if a cat scan done on your sinuses would read any problem in your nasal cavity.

I asked my doctor for a cat scan done on my nasal cavity as this is where my main problem seems to be arising from and ended up getting one done on my sinuses instead.......

I had one done and found out that I had infection of my sinuses and a very small polyps in the sinus area. This they tell me is what is causing the post nasal drip and problems I have been having for the last year with my nose. I also had a camera thingy check out my nasal cavity to my throat which found I had enlarged cartlage in the cavity area due to having my nose severely broken when I was a child.

BUT, the problem I am having is when I blow my nose it feels as though there is something enlodged in the left side of the cavity which when I breath deeply I can feel flapping or moving. After blowing my nose my nasal cavity burns and almost feels like something is drilling into the the tisue and back into the center part of my nose. When this happens it hurts the cavity and the inner bridge part of my nose. Sometimes my nose also bleeds. This pain and burning lasts for about an hour as long as I dont keep blowing me nose and than my breathing goes back to normal until I blow again only to set it off again.

I have been taking Nasonex a steroid nose spray and salinex on top of taking anti biotics for the sinus infection. In the case of the sprays besides major burning they have done nothing for the post nasal drip or this problem I have been having.
I hate using steroids for anything but every time I go to my doctor she only wants to give me more of the same sprays.

I am concerned of a worm I seen in an educational show in Africa that creates simular nasal problems. Not sure if anyone else has heard of it but now a days you never know what you could have and I sure hope I dont have that.:o:confused::eek:

Thanks for any help I can get.:D

  • Try Sinox instead, it's a non-drug spray so it doesn't have some of the nasty side effects. I find it works great to clear out the sinuses, which improves my overall comfort and helps me breathe better. You can also make your own saline solutions at home, but Sinox uses high-tech ingredients which are balanced and efficient.
