Nasal Conditions: Deviated Septum

Nasal congestion on one or both sides of the nose, chronic breathing difficulties, noisy breathing during sleep, facial pain and headaches, postnasal drip, and nosebleeds are symptoms of a deviated septum. Dr. Andrew Rivera, Otolaryngologist with Baptist Health South Florida, says patients can experience better airflow on one side than the other, which is a common complaint. He points out that if your septum is deviated and your nasal passage is narrow, that can contribute to you snoring.
