Re: Deviated Septum - cannot breathe out of my nose!
I am in the same boat as you. It has been a while since I have checked these boards out, and I have made several posts about my problem. I would love to go see a doctor, but because of the problem I have, and the lack of them doing anything about it, I just do not trust doctors.
I started noticing my breathing problem when I was in the 7th grade, and I'm a freshman in college now. I never had my nose broken, but there may have been a time when I was hit in the nose by a basketball (not too severe, but severe enough) and that may have caused it. I started experiencing difficulty breathing through my nose after a really bad nose bleed (this thing probably needed a good 20 minutes to stop bleeding, and the bleeding was pretty bad). This was not immediatly after the incident I think that caused it (do not remember for sure, but it does make sense). I also have large tonsils, which I think may or may not make for difficulty breathing through the mouth as well. You can check out "threads" or whatever you prefer to call them started by me relating to this problem, but I too experience the problem on one side of the nose, and then another at another time. Just early in 2005 (had it since about 2000) did any Dr. take a scope and look in there, but still did not find anything.
It has been a long frustrating road, but I think I am going to look into getting something done this school year (I was too chicken to do it over summer break) as college breaks are usually a bit longer...I think...heh
