Can nasal congestion or a stuffy nose be a sign of a deviated septum?

0

I have been experiencing nasal congestion for the past few weeks that has yet to subside. I have tried every over the counter remedy imaginable including the neti pot and I’m beginning to think that this may be something more than mucus build up. Can nasal congestion or a stuffy nose be a sign of a deviated septum?

Hi there,

Thanks for your question.

The most common symptom of a deviated septum is nasal congestion. When one side of the nose is more congested than the other, it can become difficult to breathe. Recurrent or repeated sinus infections can also be a sign of a deviated septum. Other symptoms include:

– Nosebleeds
– Facial pain
– Headache
– Post nasal drip
– Loud breathing and snoring during sleep
– Sleep apnea
