Deviated septum ?

Posted , 3 users are following.

I got hit in the nose 2 years ago. Ever since my nose feels a little out of place to one side side I use my finger to push it back.

I hear a cracking noise as I do but it sorta helps. As I can breath a little easier on one side.

It's very annoying and I'm also having troubles sleeping die to always having to crack it to be able to breath enough threw my nose and even when I do it's still not 100 percent.

There are no major signs of deformity.

I really really want to be able to breath again and sleep well.

What are my options ?

Thanks in advance.

    The thin wall between the nostrils is made of cartilage and bone, and is called the septum. When this is off-center or crooked, it is called a deviated septum.

    A deviated septum may be present at birth, may become crooked during growth, or may be caused by injury to the nose and face.
