• Nasal Polyps Symptoms

Nasal Polyps Symptoms
  • Running nose: Continuous watering from the nose with or without sneezing is one of the most common presenting symptoms of Nasal Polyps.
  • Nasal Obstruction: One of the most troublesome symptoms of Nasal Polyps is the tendency to obstruct the nasal passage bringing on a 'stuffed-up' feeling.
  • Mouth Breathing: The patient experiences difficulty in breathing through his nose, and unconsciously starts breathing through his mouth, especially at night. Mouth breathing leads to changes in the facial structure.
  • Post-Nasal Drip: Nasal mucus tends to run continuously down the back of the throat.
  • Loss of sense of smell: There is partial or complete loss of sense of smell with or without loss of taste.

Symptoms of Nasal Polyps
  • Facial pain and/or headache: This occurs due to the pressure of the swollen and irritated tissues on the nerves of the sinuses.
  • Snoring: Polyps tend to restrict a person's breathing compelling them to snore at night.
