I just had this happen yesterday during an outpatient procedure. Just my left nostril and it started immediately when the tube was placed into my nostrils. Just the left one. I was awake for 20 minutes before the procedure so I must have taken it out of my nose at least 6 times! My nose was itching like crazy! But it never seemed like it was caused by an irritation because the reaction was immediate! When I was driven home it continued, when I got home it continued ... same thing, bend over and nose runs. I have been blowing my nose constantly, I have tried saline mist, used my neti pot and nothing has helped yet! How long did yours last? To me it feels like it does when I find one of my dogs hair in my nostril, but I can't find anything in there, although it feels like there is something there! I just want it to stop!View Thread
