Blocked nasal cavity worry all day
« on: February 09, 2014, 03:00:00 AM »
So ~4 months ago my nasal cavity was "blocked" when i lay, and sometimes when im apsitting.
At first i thought it was normal, but then after 2.5 months i started worrying because it was getting 100% blocked!
4 weeks ago, i was taking a shower, and my nasal cavity still was blocked, so i deciced to blow it a lot, and guess what!?
 Big green phglem came out of my nose, it was very big and green.
After that day, my nose started feeling a lot less blocked, now its like 25% blocked, and my nose feels awkward.
Im really scared about it being an infection, and it spreads near my brain and die,
Or i stop breathing.
I really do not know what i have nor how to get rid of it!
I cant sleep or keep calm, i think about my nose 24/7 and blow it a lot!
Please help me, what do i do?!  :traurig001:

EDIT: when i blow my nose, it does a strange sound

Are both nostrils clogged?


Have you tried taking some Sudafed? You can get it at any pharmacy.

I doubt it'd be like a nasal polyp (I think that's what it's called) because you'd be able to see it.

Sudafed usually cleared out my nasal cavity pretty well.

When I was congested I did this number....

* Press your tounge up tight against the roof of your mouth, and press firmly with your thumb between your eyes, just above the bridge of your nose. there's kind of a divet between your forehead and your nose bridge. I held that for a good 30 seoncds or so and it usually cleaned me out.


You can alsopress firmly with two fingers under each eye socket at the top of your cheeks and sometimes that will do it.

If problems get worse I wouldn't see a problem with going to minor or urgent care at the hospital and get that checked out man.


Hope that helps some.

By the pressure point relief?


Don't feel worse, I'm sorry if I did. I didn't mean to come off as striking more problems.

if it was the polyp thing that startyled I apologize for that, for some reason I was assuming that's where you were going with it, I should have re-read your post. I've read about them back in school, it's not even the same situation, that is like a growth that deals with allergies and stuff I think. There's no way that's what it is because believe me... you'd know.

Don't feel worried about it, sorry, I did the best I could there.

I'm certain it's not going to spread to your brain. Sounds like allergies. My husband is allergic to everything and never has more than one nostril working at anytime and this has been going on for years.

If it was a sinus infection you would have a lot of pain in and around your face and jaws.

You may want to look into a Neti Pot - its a great way to flush the sinuses

There are these things called nasal turbinates and there are 3 on each side inside your nose. If you look up your nose, you can see the 1st ones.  One of mine got swollen and my doc was 'no big deal'.  I looked it up and saw that they're almost always swollen because of allergies or sinus infections. The might give you a steroid nasal spray.  That gave me a headache so they switched to a regular allergy type nasal spray and it just feels a tiny bit clogged some days. Unless they are so bad you can't sleep at night, they don't do anything like a laser reduction to them. 

Do NOT use stuff like Afrin every day. That will make them swell and stay enlarged.  Steam helps and they also had me use Sudaphed behind the counter (generic is cheap) when I felt really clogged.  Worked very well. 

It still feels a tiny bit bigger than the other but I hadn't noticed it at all today til I read your thread.

It could be a sinus infection, but it sounds just like allergies too just like other loafers have said. Blowing a large amount of snot out of your nose is not a big deal and that that the blockage mostly cleared is a good thing.
Steam and heat can help loosen the mucus so that is why why it most likely came out during that time, and you were probably blowing harder than times in the past.
You probably have allergies and your sinus cavity is irritated.
Try some allergy meds or visit a doctor if you are super concerned.

OK so in the old movies and TV shows when someone had a bad cold, they would always be shown sitting at the kitchen table with their face over a big bowl of steaming hot water and a towel covering their head and the bowl of water.  That was the old fashioned way of loosing up clogged nasal passages - the steam from the water would help ease the sinus swelling - thats what likely happened while you were in the bath.  The hot water hit your nasal passages and loosened up the phlegm and it came out.

Today people want to use meds to try and clear clogged sinus but as a long term allergy suffer I personally think that is folly.  A neti pot works simply, much more efficiently and is a lot cheaper.

I agree with everyone else, you have nothing to be worried about, get a neti pot and clean your sinuses and breathe steam to help loosen everything up, Sudafed or an allergy medicine would probably help you out a lot or a nasal spray to get everything open. I had blocked sinuses for just over 5 months and had the same worries but my dr and ENT assured me that I was not going to get an eye or brain infection and no I definitely would not die from a blocked nose :)

Sounds like an infection or sinus issue--but nothing to worry over.  Call your doctor and see if you need an antibiotic to clear it all up :)
