      Angry Nose problems

      Okay, so i have 2 nose problems, here we go.

      1) I can only breathe through one nostril, but, the nostril i can breathe through changes like an hours or 2. If I plug my nostril that i can breathe through, the other one i can breathe through but VERY slightly. how come i can NEVER ever breathe through both?

      2) My nose is EXTREMELY sensitive to touch, when i squeeze the nostril, it feels a sharp pain. Quite annoying..

      HALLLLLLLP MWEEE!

      Here are the list of ingredients in common nose pills:

      * Diphenhydramine
      * Phenylephrine
      * Ephedrine (& pseudoephedrine)
      * Oxymetazoline
      * Naphazoline
      * Brompheniramine
      * Chlorpheniramine
      * Clemastine
      * Loratadine
      * Pheniramine

      Here are the list of ingredients in common nose pills, that ACTUALLY WORK for me:

      *Ephedrine (& Pseudoephedrine)


      Do you have a RUNNY nose, or is it all dry up there?

      What have you tried so far?

      To get started, take about thirty mg of ephedrine.
      If you don't mind feeling like you're on speed, take 60-100mg.

      Shit. You can't take pills?
      Uhh...

      Alright. I got one good suggestion, but you're going to have to trust me.
      ONLY DO THIS IF YOU HAVE AT LEAST A LITTLE BIT OF AIRFLOW IN BOTH NOSTRILS.

      Step 1: Fill a container with warm salt water. The mixture is about 1 teaspoon to two cups of water. You can add baking soda if you can't handle the burn.

      Step 2: Spin around three times and say the magic words: "Klaatu Barada Nikto."

      Step 3: Fill a syrenge, or one of those ear cleaning bulbs, or ... something that would work... with water. Turn it upright and squirt all the air out and resuck up some more water to replace the air.

      Step 4: Stick it up your nose and tilt your head down. Squirt the water up your nose.

      Step 5: Exhale through your mouth. Water will run out your other nostril and out your mouth.

      Step 6: Repeat for the other nostril.


      I know. Sounds painful and gross.
      It's not painful.
      And, WHO CARES if it's gross? It works.

      That's not normal? One of my nostrils is almost always partially clogged. It alternates so often I don't even notice anymore... well, that and the fact that my nose has been that way for as long as I can remember lol

      I hope you find something that works. I'm not brave enough (or suffering enough ) to irrigate my nose though. I've heard it does help a lot of people.

      One of my nostrils seems to always be clogged/closed up more than the other... If I'm trying to sleep and I'm lying on my side, it's always the one closer to the pillow.

      Have you tried a nasal spray like Nasonex? I used it for a few weeks (you need a prescription but it's not too much money) and the problem seemed to go away by itself.

      Same here. I seem to always have one partially clogged and it changes. Same as Puffin, sometimes has to do with how I slept

      If it seems worse when exposed to one thing or another (like laying against a pillow) it could be simple allergies. Just wash your pillow/pillow case more frequently and that should help.

      For me, it feels like congestion further up near my sinuses. And no, there definitely aren't boogers there either.

      It's probably allergies, then.

      (I'm pretty sure congestion can change from one nostril to the other...)

      Definitely. I actually hate congestion, snot and having a runny nose so much that I'd rather get the flu.
