Sinus Congestion?

2 posts in this topic

I heard that gluten allergies can cause sinus problems. For me, it is sinus swelling, and not mucus. I get my worst congestion at night, usually having one nostril completely clogged. I have just been off gluten for a few days now, and I would like to know how long i should expect for congestion to go away. How many days, in your experience, did it take for nasal congestion to go away? 

ty!

Hi Norman!

 

Everyone is different and symptoms improve at all different rates.  My son had severe nasal congestion -- it has improved, but isn't completely gone - gerd and sinus issues are his only remaining symptoms - although much improved.

 

I hope this improves for you quickly -- also sometimes we blame gluten for some issues that can be attributed to something else -- if your sinus issue doesn't improve - I'd look at other possible irritants.

 

Hang in there :)
