tighter than a drum, with me, just the right side, the red eye also gets bloodshot, but I assumed whatever irritant caused my nose to shut also irritates my eye, as the nasal passages block, then that terrible pain comes like a spike being driven into my right eye that goes back out of my right ear and even extends downward into my teeth. The goal is to clear the nose, like others used steam, stick my head in a bucket of ice water, hold ice cubes next to my nose, but the most effective means I found so far is to coat my nose with Orajel, ironically the other brands of toothache medicine don't work as well, clear liquid starts dripping, and if I am super lucky, I will sneeze, and the headache is gone that quick. Nothing works if I am in a trigger source, like being near freshly dumped liquid manure, have to get away, further confusion occurs by having neck therapy cause my nasal passages to plug then the dreaded CH, what are your experiences with this?
