i'm still having problems with this dry nose, eyes not so much.

i woke up this morning all stopped up with a bloody nose. i use a saline solution alot.

so far my sense of smell has not been affected that much. well a little. i can't smell coffee in the morning anymore and i swear sometimes i smell stuff he can't.

my sinuses under my eyes always hurt and the sides of my nose are very swollen.

i've been to an ent and he says "normal".

well i'm tired of being "normal". there has to be something wrong.

i can't blow my nose cause nothing is there, it's dry.

i give up...

Get a humidifier for your bedroom .. or the house if you can afford it.

With Sjogren's I suffer terribly from this in the winter. I want to move back to Texas!

Milk really does that to me. If you are dairy-free, there may have been some milk or casein that has gotten into your food.

Gluten does that to me, for sure, too. And corn is a huge offender of my sinuses.

Still, a humidifier that has an built in anti-microbial feature with a blue light or such is good -- but let the machine air out a bit before taking it into your bedroom.

CHENILLE and fuzzy fabrics should also be avoided, even velour and corduroy. They shed something fierce and get into our sinuses. We react to the fibers but also to the dyes and finishing chemicals.

If you have any new textiles or other objects in your home, be sure to consider those, too.

Antioxidants to help calm the inflammation can help regardless of the cause but they can help only so much. Hope you find a clear cause so you can banish that but the moisture in the air will still be needed if it's dry.

Xlear nasal spray may be more helpful than the saline, or can be used in conjunction with saline.

Xylitol (active ingredient in xlear nasal spray) can promote restoration of moisture in mucus membranes, and also inhibits microbial infections.
