I'm a 20 years old male. My ENT has diagnosed me with a deviated septum, she now suggested surgery. I suffer from allergic rhinitis as well. (I'm taking meds for that but they don't seem to help).
Everyday when I wake up I have an headache.
Also, my eyes feel sore and I have a general feeling of being unwell.During the day, I yawn a lot, and i feel sleepy. For the allergy, I have already changed meds twice, as they didn’t seem to work. I tried aerius, fluticasone nose spray, and some others.

Other than that, the last year in september I have been diagnosed with erosive gastritis, esophagitis and bile lake.
I have tried different types of meds, Lansox, Pantoprazol, and Zantac (which I am taking now) but not much seems to change.

I'm trying to understand now wether the headache is given by my bent septum/allergy or by my stomach, before I have surgery.

I have been feeling like this since 2009, and it never got better.

Also, I wonder, how come my meds against the allergy aren't working? How come I have been feeling like this since Dicember? (I thought allergies attack mostly before summer) Can my headaches be related to my deviated septum? If yes, what are the chances that the two are related? Could I have sleep apnea? (My partner told me that at times I even wake her up because Im snoring loudly)

Thanks for any replies. I hope somebody can help me to shred some light on this subject.
