I've had severe turbinate obstruction for almost a year . It's causing bad insomnia, lethargy, and headaches. I've tried flonase and it worked only for a week. Right now I'm using saline rinses and they help about 30% but not enough . The ENT recommended turbinate reduction but I don't want to risk ENS . I also saw a pulmonary doctor. I did an overnight sleep test and asthma test. The results came back that I don't have asthma and that I don't have true sleep apnea. He said I only had some disruption in airflow in my nose and that a turbinate reduction would most likely solve my problems. I'm going to see an allergist soon. However, I just wanted to hear if anyone has experienced sudden onset prolonged swollen turbinates and found the cause whether it be conventional or unconventional. It'd just help me try out all the possibilities if I don't get answers through conventional means. Nothing changed in my diet and nothing noticeable changed in my environment .
