I Think I Have a Nasal Airway Obstruction What Causes It?

The nasal valve is made up of three different parts:

  1. The Septum – the ridge of bone and tissue located between the two nostrils
  2. The Turbinates – fingerlike areas of tissue that warm, humidify and direct air as it enters your nasal cavity
  3. The Lateral Wall – the side tissue that forms the outer wall of your nose

What is nasal obstruction?

Many people with nasal obstruction experience difficulty breathing through their nose, habitual snoring, interrupted sleep and fatigue. Nasal obstruction is often caused by anatomical blockage in the nose, hindering airflow. As a result, you may feel congested or “stuffy”. Home remedies and medications may offer temporary relief. It’s only when your nasal airway is opened that you can expect to find real, lasting relief.

Common symptoms of nasal obstruction:

  • Trouble breathing through your nose
  • Nasal congestion
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Difficulty breathing during physical exertion
