Headaches from turbinate hypertrophy
I have inferior turbinate hypertrophy, one side of the nose is always blocked. My ent says it is a minor issue and has given me decongestants. However I also experience very bad headaches in the forehead, eye movement also gets restricted in such scenarios. Need help in understanding this relationship between nose and headaches and what can be done to reduce them.
