How Can You Understand That "Nasal Septum Deviation" Is In Your Nose?

Causes, Definition and Treatment of Deviated Nasal Septum

The nasal septum, which divides the nasal cavity in two, can sometimes curve to the right or to the left. In the case of this curvature, which is defined as nasal septum deviation, there is a difference between the volume of the nasal cavity. That is, when entering more than one nostril, less air enters than the other. The "nasal septum deviation", one of the most common causes of ascending intranasal airway resistance, is found to be reduced by 60-80% in the more or less common population.

Many symptoms may occur in patients with severe nasal septum deviation!

Patients with advanced curvature in nasal septum may develop nasal obstruction and associated manifestations. Symptoms that can be attributed to the nasal septum deviation:

• Nasal obstruction is the most common complaint due to nasal septum deviation ... Generally, the severity of nasal obstruction of pregnancy, allergic disease and upper respiratory tract infections increases.
• Bleeding of the nose. The surface of your nasal septum may become dry, increasing your risk of nosebleeds.
• Facial pain. Patients with severe nasal septum deviation may experience pressure and contact-related pain that the nasal septum has made to the lateral wall. Sometimes this pain can be mixed with tension type headache or migraine headache.
• Noisy breathing during sleep and decreased sleep quality, snoring, or aggravation in the sleep apnea.
• Awareness of the nasal cycle. Maybe you are not aware, but you have to lie down to the side of the nasal septum deviation! It is normal for the nose to alternate being obstructed on one side, then changing to being obstructed on the other. This is called the nasal cycle. The nasal cycle is a normal phenomenon, but being aware of the nasal cycle is unusual and can be an indication that there is an abnormal amount of nasal obstruction.
• Recurrent sinus infections
• As a result of nasal obstruction, very different additional symptoms may occur such as adverse effects on tracheal function, gum disease, decrease in exercise capacity

Causes of Deviated Nasal Septum

Nasal septum deviation is usually due to genetic and traumatic causes. While traumas may cause nasal septum deviation from the mother's womb, with the pressure of the baby's face during cooling; Trauma to the nose directly after birth can also cause this situation. Traumas that cause nasal septum deviation in growing children can also cause various nasal deformities that occur when growth is complete.
