The Upper Part Of The Nasal Bone Is Depressed With The Nose And Throat Feeling Blocked?
I have a complaint where the base of the nose between my two eyes feels depressed. In addition, my nose was like clogged and my throat felt a lot of phlegm and like there was fluid flowing. my eyes also feel sore because of the pressure at the base of the nose. In January, I checked with an eye doctor last year and my eye pressure was 21-19 after several trials. and when viewed using the yellow light the eye doctor said my eyes are still normal. feeling depressed is only when I’m not much activity. I have never felt great pain in my eyeballs, only feeling depressed and not comfortable at the base of my nose. Is this glaucoma or sinusitis?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Seeing from your symptoms, the possibility of disease is more directed at sinusitis. Sinusitis itself is acute (if it occurs less than 4 weeks), subacute sinusitis (if it occurs between 4-12 weeks), and chronic sinusitis (if it occurs for 12 weeks or more). There is also what is called recurrent sinusitis, which is a symptom of sinusitis that occurs several times a year. If these symptoms have lasted more than 12 weeks (already more than 1 year in your case), then the sinusitis that you experience is called chronic sinusitis.
The following are some of the symptoms of chronic sinusitis:
Feeling full and depressed in sinus areas on the face (can be on the forehead above the eyebrows, at the base of the nose between the two eyes, on the inside of the eyeball, on the cheeks under the eyes)
Impaired olfactory nose or tongue feeling
Greenish / yellowish slimy nose thick
Post nasal drip (phlegm running down the back of the throat)
Can also be accompanied by symptoms such as headaches, bad breath, tooth pain, fatigue and weakness, coughing at night, etc.
It is better if you consult directly with the ENT doctor so that further examination and treatment can be carried out. The doctor can suggest several types of therapy such as administration of decongestant drugs, nasal spray corticosteroids, sinus irrigation, antibiotics, or if all the treatments are not successful in treating sinusitis, the doctor can propose a sinus cleansing operation.
Some things you can do:
If you have allergies, you should avoid allergens (substances that make you allergic)
Prevent airway infections (diligent hand washing, avoid talking close to people who are coughing colds, etc.)
Avoid smoking, cigarette smoke, and exposure to air pollution
Use a humidifier in your home or work place
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
