I too have a deviated septum. I have 2 ENT doctors tell me that with the sjogrens, surgery would not help with the infections that I have. I was told that I could probably breath better but not garenteed. I gasp for air sometimes.
I have horrendous pain in my nose and face and I live with constant infections. the saline wash and spray help with that.
I was also diagnosed with trigemenal nueralgia (chronic face pain) and when it is bad it is terrible.
I never ever had sinus problems until sjogrens came flying at me like a speeding bullit and- and........I had a lot of dental work done.
