Heading to the ER tonite

I have this crazy addiction to OTC nasal sprays for the past year or so and yesterday was the day that they all lost effectiveness. I have worked 4 days straight 12 hours per day with a total of 6 hours between all 4 days.

I can't breathe out of my nose at all, it's like someone put a vice on it, only through my mouth making sleep impossible. My ENT has been in surgeries for the past 2 days and hasn't gotten back to me and I am desperate now. I need an oral steroid or something to make me be able to breathe again.

I want to kill myself...

Re: Heading to the ER tonite

not sure you're still around this evening jeff but i keep hearing so much about netti pots for instant relief... you might want to check it out. Most of the 24 hour drug stores around here sell them.

Oh gosh, I used to be the same and then I went on a trip and forgot my spray, I thought I was going to die but my nose got unblocked eventually and unless I have a real bad cold I have not used a spray ever since. Good luck to you

Re: Heading to the ER tonite

Just got home from the ER, got a prescription for Prendisone to help open it up, gonna call my ENT back tomorrow and get an extension on the prescription as he only wrote for a few days since I couldn't get with her.

Gonna take the next 5 days off and go cold turkey with the help of the Prendisone and oral decongestants. Pray for me... I have been up now for close to 24 hours and worked 11 of those today on only 1.5 hours of sleep from the night prior.

I want to kill myself.

Re: Heading to the ER tonite

When I was younger I had caught a cold, I was using Affrin (sp) and became addicted to it without even knowing it. So I have never used it again.

I have a deviated septum and use flo-nase daily to keep me breathing correctly. It's a mild steroid to keep the tissue from swelling and closing off the airways.
At some point I will have to get it fixed, but since guys noses grow their entire life, I figured I'd wait till I was 50 or so to get a nose job!

Re: Heading to the ER tonite

Its amazing how you can get addiction to stupid things.

When I found out I had the brain tumor I had to have a special test involving nuclear technology so for some reason I could not have any chocolate, coke, pepsi, tea or coffee for 48 hours. When I got to the hospital I had a terrible migraine. I told the doctor and he said it was the caffeine withdrawal. I could not believe it.

Same here. I used it, and eventually I couldn't breath without it.

Re: Heading to the ER tonite

I have a friend that was in the same boat. He has has surgery also. He claims he can never be off the medications, which is mostly sudafed type stuff. Anyway I keep telling him he is just dependent on them. It may have started as a nasal cavity infection, but thats long gone now as proven by his last checkup. But he "needs" the medication to breathe.

Well I hope the best for ya and that this goes over soon. Its hard on the body no matter what.

Re: Heading to the ER tonite

That prednisone is worse than not breathing IMO.

I was prescribed that for a case of Hives from antibiotics.That stuff made me sweat so bad when I slept,it was like someone dumped a bucket of water on my bed.(no I did not pee the bed).

Ity dehydrated me something fierce.I could not drink enough liquids.
