Hello and welcome to HCM
You have mentioned that you have enlarged turbinates and a septal spur.
These findings indicate that you have some kind of structural abnormality of the nasal septum
Anterior ETHmoidal nerve
is located very superficially in the nasal mucosa. Any noxious agent or irritation causes stimulation or compression of the nerve.
The cause in your case is definitaly the septal spur. Spur is a projection arising from the nasal septum. The sur must be impinging or compressing the anterior ethmoidal nerve.
Anterior ethmoidal syndrome
also called anterior ethmoidal neuralgia
causes intense pain in the forehead. The pain can invove any part of the head and neck region depending on the portion of the nerve compressed. It can occur around the orcit, in the cheek region, along the jaw etc.
For the neuralgia, decongestants are the best mode to relieve pain.
However, for apermanent cure surgical correction of underlying cause (spur) is required.
Consult your ENT specialist
Thaks and take care
