my nose constantly blocked 24/7 some times can breat through my nose at all

hey guys i dint know where to post this but thought this might be the best place. my problem is my nose, it is constantly blocked i have a antihistamean nasal spray which i am only meant to use 2 times a day but i have to use it 3-4 times if i dont spray it then my nose completley blocks up and if i hold one nostral closed and try and breath through the other on i can sometimes they both are completly blocked, i cant sleep at night and i keep getting headaches and i think thats because i keep sniffing or something to do with my nose being blocked. i have been to the doctors and he sent me for a head scan and gave me about 3 nasal spray which were rubbish i have just been to spain and i had to by a spray there and it seems to help so i bought 2 to bring back with me my nose is still blocked if i dont spray it enough though. and i dont sleep at night im always waking up

heres a few details about me

im 22
i smoke (could this be the cause)
i have a dog (but my nose is no worse when around him)
i have a horse (but again my nose is not worse around him)
i dont eat healthy all the time
i dont exercise and much as i should but i am under weight for my age (9 stone thats 126 pounds) i do find it hard to put weight on even though i eat like a horse.

any ideas or advice would be great thanks this has been going on for about a year now.

See an ENT and an allergist. There could be something there, such as a nasal polyp, that needs to be removed. Or maybe you are allergic to something, some people are even allergic to cigarette smoke.

Instead of using sprays so often look into saline rinses. You can make this up at home and use it to flush out your sinuses.

My dad had a sinus problem for two years--he even had surgery which did not come close to taking care of the problem. He was than told by and ENT here to try rinsing his sinus with pickling salt and water. My dad's sinuses cleared within days. He continues to do his sinus rinses every day. Just a suggestion-hope it helps.

hi guys i have just got back from the doctors i told them that my nose is constatly blocked 24/7 and none of the sprays they gave me worked and showed him the one i had bought myself, he has now gievn me prednisolone tablets 6 tablets a day in one go with a meal for two weeks he said it was a steroid and if it works he will give me a spray instead of tablets, he said if it does not work he will send me to a ent specialist, so hopefully im getting somewhere now. he checked my nose and said he could not see any polyps but did sugest thats what it could be.

Do you move barrels of hay? It could be hay mold, which is very common for people who own a ranch. It's got very common cold-like side-effects once you inhale it's spores. Itchy skin, hives, rashes, blurred vision, watery or itchy eyes, stuffed nose, diarherea, excess mucus, exhaustion, wheezing, coughing, headaches, and these are just to name a few.

Fletcher,

If your condition gets worse when taking steroids, you may have a bacterial infection, not allergies....be careful as steroids can be dangerous for some people.
