Many Orlando residents suffer from a chronic runny nose, postnasal drip, facial pain, headaches, persistent stuffiness, pressure over the forehead and face. Without realizing there is an underlying problem causing these symptoms nasal polyps. 

Anyone can be affected by nasal polyps. In fact, they are very common, affecting about 30 percent of Americans. These soft, noncancerous growths, typically in the shape of a grape or a teardrop, are found in the lining of the sinuses or nasal passages. 

Do you have nasal polyps?  Here are a few common symptoms:

Have a difficult time breathing through the nose

Headaches and persistent stuffiness 

Constant runny nose

Postnasal drip

Facial pain or pressure

Chronic sinus infections

Little to no sense of smell

What causes nasal polyps? 

“Scientists don’t yet fully understand what causes nasal polyps, why some people develop long-term inflammation, or why irritation and swelling (inflammation) triggers polyps to form in some people and not in others. The swelling occurs in the fluid-producing lining (mucous membrane) of your nose and sinuses.” Mayo Clinic

If you’re anything like me, and have tried just about every over the counter medication looking for relief from my symptoms. But they just kept coming back. That’s when a friend told me about Orlando Ear, Nose & Throat.

With an exam, diagnosis, and treatment, I am breathing easy and pain free! Not only did I find relief, I found out there was a more permanent solution.
