It's hard to describe the "feeling" I often get in my left nostril but I'll try. I do have allergies, but this problem occurs often when my allergies are doing fine. I get an "itch" in one spot about
an inch and a half up on the inside, If I play sports, often it REALLY itches afterwards and almost feels like a hot poker up there. Last night, after playing basketball for only a short time, it caused me to sneeze for 5 hours afterwards, at first on each breath in through that nostril. I also have very runny discharge both out the nostril and post nasal drip.
This occurs about 12 x/year to this degree or close. ALWAYS just the left nostril. Also, it can be brought on by some more severe allergies or a cold. I do NOT feel that it is allergies. I tHINK it's more like an irritated "spot" up there that is very sensative. The ENT doctor says there are no polups (sp?) or the like and just treats it like an allegry symptom, which means she doesn't treat it at all.
