Congestion in nose, breathing problem, allergic. Any permanent cure?

I have had a problem the past couple years with congestion in my nose and haven't been able to breath properly. My Dr. and I thought it was allergies and we only recently realized that there is a greater problem. She has prescribed me two different nasal sprays and I just stopped taking the second as I woke up yesterday with both ears completely clogged. Now I'm hearing a ringing in my ears :( Am I going to have Tinnitus? I'm really worried that it will be permanent. My Dr. told me to take my allergy pills to help the swelling. I am also scheduled to see a nose specialist next week. Just wondering if there's anything else I can do?

Hi and thanks for the query,
Nasal sprays in nasal congestion are usually a type of anti allergic drugs called anti histamic drugs or nasal steroids. Clinical response to such treatment could indicate the implication of a hypersensitive or abnormally high inflammatory reaction. Other considerations like fever, quality of the discharge (pus) and the past history of other allergic states like eye symptoms, cough symptoms must be considered.
Tinnitus could be a sign of the general inflammatory process, but a keen evaluation of the ears, preferably by an ENT specialist is advisable. I suggest you continue with your nasal spray as you wait for your appointment with the ENT specialist.
Thanks and hope this helps,
Best regards,
Luchuo, MD.

Welcome to HealthCare for your Health,

As your symptom persisting for past few years please do consult your physician again and look for DNS and do routine Investigation with x-ray leading onto diagnosis.

Temporarily you can try Steam inhalation with tinc zenoine thrice daily as it relieves congestion
Practise Doing Breathing exercises in early morning to get rid off breathing problems.
