    Nasal septum deviation is the middle bit that separates the nostril is more to one side than straight. I have this and many sinus sufferers do. I'm not an expert but I believe it's saying the left max sinus (located in your cheek) is inflamed and mucous is thick, really indicating your sinus are blocked and inflamed with the thick mucous. That's what I think I have.

      I know my stupid GP is leading down the depression route. This is obserd! He wants to increase my amitripyline to such a dose it treats depression! Not having that. I'm not imagining my upper gums and teeth hurting and my cheeks feeling swollen. So much so it affects me sleeping! Maybe the dentist will take an xray and I'll get.more sense out of them.

      I went back to the doctors yesterday and showed him the xray, now I'm on different stronger antibiotics i have to take them for days! 300mg roxar roxithromycin and i have to take alergy relieve nasal spray which takes roughly a couple of days to notice slightest signs! And nose drainer stuff with salt.in it to flush germs ect! If it doesnt help then i have to see a ent specialist! I have developed the worse cough to the point i wake up during the night sweating and coughing my gutz up! I was almost gonna take myself.to the hospital but was bit to dizzy to.do so! Managed to go back to.sleep adventurely! I told my doctor I'm having trouble breathing ect but no he ignored that didnt he 😠 it could be due to my sinuses ect! Who.knows i just wanna feel some relief and not feel.like I'm getting worser and worser each day! It arent normal to be exhausted from climbing stairs at home i told him that and he said oh thats probably due to you being all.clogged up! I laughed at him lol! Hopefully we both get to the bottom.of this coz neither of us should have to suffer like this 😢
