    Hi, I have been having a blocked nose for a very long time, mostly at nights when I lay down on my bed, and when under a fan. My nose is always dry and blocked at nights. Usually on the right side of the nose and when I turn to the left, it moves to the left. Sometimes I fell pain in the chest. I have tried all sorts of drugs for cold and flu but none worked. Even inhaler. Please may I know the cause and remedy.

      I wonder if you have nasal polyps. These are small growths in your nasal passages that can cause blockages. If this is the case, a referral to an ENT surgeon will be the best course of action.

    Hi , I've been having a blocked nose for a couple of weeks now. It's on and off , sometimes it's totally normal, sometimes it's blocked completely, other time it's half and half . Even after I blow my nose all the time , the second after my nose is back as being blocked. I find it really hard to breath especially during night , and when I wake up in the morning i always have some fluid in my throat for some reason ... I've been trying pills for blocked nose, taking them every 6 hours, but nothing seems to work. I don't know what to do anymore ....

      Hello Maddie, I am sorry to hear that you have been troubled with a blocked nose. There can be many causes each with its own specific treatment. As we need a diagnosis, the first step will be to see your doctor. If this does not help, consider a referral to an ENT specialist - one condition that comes to mind when reading about your symptoms is a nasal polyp and this can be sorted with a simple surgical procedure.

Pregnancy can make you more susceptible to a blocked nose. Hormonal changes can cause the delicate tissues of your nose to become inflamed, restricting the flow of air and causing you to experience a blocked nose.
