septal spur, turbinates large. Headaches, infections and teeth pain?

Posted , 2 users are following.

Anyone else suffer?

My nasal spur is hitting a middle turbinate and the inferior turbinates are big.

Any tips, especially want to hear if surgery has helped anyone as that's the only thing that can help a septal spur I'm told.

    Oh my goodness, yes I have a similar thing going on. So painful. I have allergies and when I have an allergic reaction my turbinates press against the nerves in there, everything gets squeezed and I end up sometimes having painful facial headaches that go on for days and sometimes weeks. It's horrible I've had 2 surgeries on my sinuses to correct other problems but my first ENT couldn't figure out what was going on and he said I was getting migraines. I went and had a second opinion from the top sinus doctor where I'm from and he is going to do a revision on my surgery because the first one also left diseased tissues and didn't do my surgery correctly. Sigh. I have to pay privately though because otherwise I would have to wait 2 or 3 years and I'm so uncomfortable and sometimes in severe pain that I just can't wait.

    I don't know if I have an actual spur or if everything is just being squeezed. I have big nerve bundles right there so the headaches kill me. Normal Advil and tylenol don't do much for pain. It sucks. ,
