Nasal septum deviation

After being diagnosed with deviation in nasal septum 4 yrs ago, I avoided surgery. Now, I hv been suffering with an allergy due to mosquito repellent and got a mild fever which is subsided. But last night I 've suffered with blockage of one nostril and a horrible nightmare. I'm in a doubt if this is because of nasal septum deviation. If yes, is surgery unavoidable?

The septal deviation could be just one aspect of a bigger disease called Obstructive Sleep Apnoea Syndrome. Consult a good ENT Surgeon in your city who specialises in Sleep Apnoea Surgery.
