For about the past 2.5 years, I have had severe issues breathing out of both nostrils. Basically, it feels like the upper part of my nasal cavity could be stuffed with cotton or something else preventing me from being able to breathe normally on both sides. This is apparent throughout all times of the day, whether I am working or sleeping or doing anything else.
It has gotten to the point where it is difficult for me to breathe at all unless I am breathing out of my mouth all the time. I have been seeing an ENT through the VA for about a year-and-a-half now. I have had multiple scans done, and he says that he does not see a deviated septum or nasal polyps. I also have been going to regular appointments for allergy shots, which has helped with my normal seasonal allergies, but has done nothing at all to help with my breathing issues.
This has become such a problem for me now that I often have anxiety attacks because of it. I am not sure what else they could check, but it has become a major life affecting issue for me. I was wondering if anyone here has ever heard of something like this and could give any insight as to what I might be able to ask my doctor the next time that I see him.
