Hi guys! Thanks for your input!
It's weird because during the day maybe my left nostril will be a little stuffy, then later on in the day my right nostril gets a lil' stuffy while the other gets totally clear! They seem to take turns being stuffed up!!
I thought I was the only one with this problem! It is the most damn frustrating thing that I have dealt with in a LONG time. Mine seems to change by the half hour!! And when I wake up in the morning, usually one nostril is COMPLETELY plugged. It causes alot of anxiety- because one minute youre used to breathing one way, the next minute it totally changes! GRRRRR
I used the following medications for this:
Zicam Allergy (OTC)
The ONLY 2 that worked are Flonase and Zicam (Amazingly enough). Flonase actually works the best for me, though. I had some sort of lung irritation earlier in the year, took Advair and it was gone. Fluticasone Propionate seems to work well! Give the Flonase a shot for at LEAST 7 days. I have been on it for about 12, and have just started to consistently notice the difference when it wears off- but it IS working.
Oh Yeah- my sense of smell is shot too. Except for real close stuff or real FOUL odors....
