when i sought treatment for recurrent cold and running nose i was diagonised with severe s shaped deviated nasal septum . Few doctors advised for septoplasty . But with help of medicines I could avoid frequent cold attacks. However, there is difficulty in breathing and i breathing gets louder. I have headaches and bloated stomach. could this be due to lack of proper oxygen supply? Is septoplasty recommended ? R.Radhakrishnan, Chromepet, Chennai

Hi there, thanks for asking. You are true about the relation between deviated septum, problem in oxygenation and headaches. For some people deviated septum cause oxygenation problem at night, especially if they have enlarged tonsils or any other factor that cause breathing problem. For example, if you have allergy or you get cold breathing problem become more significant. Bloated tummy could be as a result of breathing through the mouth when your nasal canals are obstructed. I suggest that you check this point with your doctor. I wish you a good health.
