When i breathe in...

When i breathe in through my nose it hurts in the back of my nose

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the pain? Does the pain affect your breathing?

A couple of days - it does make me become a mouth breather

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Just diagnosed with Lymphadema

So, this seems like upper respiratory tract infection. That can cause pain due to inflammation in the nasopharynx.

I would suggest that you start on an anti inflammatory like Motrin 200 mg thrice a day along with Sudafed twice a day and steam nebulization with menthol crystal thrice a day.

Keep yourself hydrated and sleep with a head up tilt of about 30 degrees.

If you experience nasal congestion you can use Xylometazoline nasal spray, one puff each nostril, sitting up thrice a day for relief.

Let me know if you have more queries.

Hope this helps.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
