My nose seems inflamed and full. Sometimes it whistles when I breathe.

This was one of my first symptoms and it seemed to get better and go away when I started antibiotics back in June/July. Then I went off of them in November and then back on last month.

Anyway, this fullness in my nose and Throat has come back. Sometimes I feel like I can’t get a full/deep breathe.

So annoying! Help!

Hi BTB, I have a couple questions.. Do you have any pain and or tenderness associated with the feeling of fullness in or around your sinus area? Even anywhere else on your face.. Headaches? Any feelings of pressure or fullness in your head or ears as well? Also is your nose stuffed up when it feels inflamed and full or no?

From what you said in the past when this happened it seemed to go away while on antibiotics so I was wondering now that it's back again are you on antibiotics at the moment?

The fullness that your referring to in your throat dose it ever feel like your being strangled or your esophagus is being squeezed?

sorry for all the questions lol I am just trying to understand better to see if I could be of any help..

I did have a lot of issues with sinus area and teeth/gums, I was not stuffed up like a cold.

It was pressure, soreness and my throat would feel like I wouldn't be able to swallow. Tingling, numbness in lips tongue too.

It did get better and go away with in about 4 months of treatment and then only a small occurrence during a herx about 12 months into treatment.

I,m at a year and a half now and haven't had it occur since then.

Not getting a full breath can be Babesia. Its referred to as air hunger.

I have had similar symptoms for days now. I get this numb feeling in my upper front teeth that goes up over my upper lip and into my nose. I've had numbness across the bridge of my nose and the tissue in my nose feels swollen. A couple of mornings I woke up and my face felt puffy and swollen and was red and hot to the touch during the day. All this has been coming and going for days now. Pollen is really bad. I'm wondering if it could be some odd reaction to the pollen. My eyes have also been dry and scratchy with blurry vision.

I also just confirmed I'm still having problems with ongoing mold and/or mycotoxin exposure, so that's on my mind too. The tooth/nose thing seems to kick in when I get in my car (mold? pollen?) but it's also happening in the house and wanes when I walk into another room.

Having to be a 24/7 detective is exhausting when you already hurt and have brain dysfunction.

I should mention you could have a resistant sinus infection or MARCONS. I would have the Lyme doctor test for MARCONS first.
