Nasal congestion refers to a stuffy nose.
Nose - congested; Congested nose; Stuffy nose
Many people think that a nose gets congested (stuffy) from too much thick mucus. However, in most cases, the nose becomes congested when the tissues lining it become swollen. The swelling is due to inflamed blood vessels.
Newborn infants must breathe through the nose. Nasal congestion in an infant's first few months of life can interfere with nursing, and in rare cases can cause serious breathing problems.

Since July of 2006, I have been experiencing very strange visual sensations (deja vu - seeing repetitive visions of experiences or thoughts regarding insignificant people that I have known in my life as well as physiological changes (a perceived drop in blood pressure, face paling, etc.) during numerous very short 20 to 30 second episodes. These episodes occur 4 to 5 times a year - usually seasonal and I experience about 10 -15 of them over the course of 2 days or so each time. A headache usually precedes them as does a change in my taste buds (things are tasteless or metallic tasting for a couple of days). After the episodes begin to wane (very few after a day or so), I experience a heightened sense in everything (an alertness, a heightened awareness of life). I went to see a neurologist a couple of years ago and he felt they were a type of migraine. I am experiencing them today (it's a weirdness I find difficult to explain but at times they are very fear provoking)...
for more than a year i had pain in the back of my head and it turned out to be sinus infection but even with treatment the pain came back after 3 month. Now add to that pain, i have an other sharp pain in the right side of my head behind ear and i have balance problems, i pass out for seconds without really falling when im walking or even in bed. And sometimes I can't stand more than one voice or noise and sometimes i imagine that something is going to fall while i try to catch it but nothing is really going to fall. i visited my docter and he recommended an M.R.I brain scan. any suggestions about what could it be? Age: 18. Never had any headaches until one year ago. Malek
