Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.
yes this is reversible and this will go away. However if the pain increases then you should seek the help of a ENT sugeon who advised you naseptin.
4 beelds in 30 hours is not very serious and can be contyrolled by the therapy you are trying.
