Numbness in right side of head around eyes and cheeks, deviated septum, ear congestion. Causes?

Hello, I am experiencing numbness on the right side of my head, and around my eye and cheek for the better part of eight weeks. I have a deviated septum , which affects my right nostril , and my right ear has felt plugged up (although I can hear out of it). Can the numbness/issues I ve described be related to my sinus issues?

HI I have gone through your mail and as you said that you are having numbness on your right side of head,cheek and around your right eye.your right ear is blocked and you are a diagnose case of deviated nasal septum right side and your right nostril is affected. After listening your this story I am suspecting that your deviated nasal septum to right had given rise to right sided sinusitis thus giving you right sided numbness or heavyness over head,around your right eye,cheek and this also extend to your throat and blocking your right ear by reaching to ear via eustcchian tube (tubular connection between throat and ear).You are now advice to go for these basic investigations like-(1) C.T.Scan of paranasal sinuses, (2) culture and sensitivity of nasal discharge & throat swab. (3) Audiometery - Pure tone & Impedance of ear,after this you should contact your E.N.T.specialist for exmination of ear,nose and throat and co-relation of reports of investigations to establish a diagnosis which may be manage accordingly.Thanks.
