What causes breathlessness and nasal congestion?

I have been having trouble for months with some sort of debilitating illness... I have lost a great deal of my hearing and it is only getting worse... I thew up a couple of months back and I felt something cram into the back of my throat.. the pain was very very bad. I could not even get up or move for two days because my right ear hurt so bad... my right nostril is constantly plugged and I cannot breath very well at times through even my mouth I it is easier to breath with my held held more up. and I have noticed my fingernails are now starting to turn purply. blue. I have had spells where I feel very faint and dizzy and very close to passing out.

As per your history, it may be due to nasal congestion.

For that you can use nasal saline drops locally.

Along with that do steam inhalation.

In case of fever you may can tab acetaminophen and antibiotics after consultation.

Along with that that you may require basic investigations like chest X Ray and complete blood count after consultation.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
