ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I have been diagnosed with Empty Nose syndrome. I had 3 sinus surgeries years ago and I only have 50% of my inferior turbinates left. now I am so sick because of this. I have not slept in years, have chronic sinus infections, facial pain, shortness of breath, asthma, ear pain, too much air going up nose, dry nose, tracheobronchomalacia, bronchectisis, reflux, depression, tired all the time and now permanently disabled at 56. There are so many people suffering from empty nose syndrome and the medical community has no cure. There are many people committing suicide because of this problem. Doctors are still cutting people’s turbinates off and do not want to recognize this awful complication that happens to some people. They have no ICD code for this and it’s not a recognized medical problem. People are putting out thousands of dollars for experimental injections and implants that are not covered by insurance. Please help us find a cure for this horrible illness.
