Other than allergies and colds, I guess I breathe quite normally for a human being.

Not currently broken, I hope. I had a straight break years ago, so it never bothers me now. Someone mentioned a panicky feeling when breathing through their nose. If I try alternate nostril breathing, I'll get the same and notice I favor one side. :scratch:

It might be a deviated septum or... swollen erectile tissue. :lol:

About 85% of People Only Breathe Out of One Nostril at a Time

Today I found out around 85% of humans only breathe out of one nostril at a time. Even more interesting is that the pattern of switching from breathing out of one nostril to the other happens in a cyclical fashion, with about four hours or so between each switch typically; although, this can vary from person to person and vary based on your bodily position or nasal congestion.

This “nasal cycle” was first noticed by a German nose specialist, Richard Kayser in 1895. How your nose accomplishes this switch is via erectile tissue in your nose, which is very similar to the erectile tissue in a penis or clitoris. Erectile tissue will swell up in one nostril, mostly blocking it, and at the same time erectile tissue in the other nostril will shrink, opening it up for breathing.

Even more interesting is that depending on which nostril you are predominately breathing out of at any given moment, it seems to greatly affect your body and brain.

But now its the main orafice I breath through.

When I was a child I used to tell mom that "I think God stuck my nose on wrong" which concerned her, but she was clueless.


When I was in my 20s our family doctor said that I had "the worst deviated septum he had ever seen".

Finnally!

So I got the operation to straighten out my septum (the wall between one's nostrils), and its all good now. I can swim, and can keep my mouth closed while I eat now and such.


Naturalplastic, I've been told I have a deviated septum too. Could you tell me more about your experience with your operation and exactly what it did for you? That's something I might consider for myself.


My nose always looked a bit asymemetrical. One nostril always filled up with boogers before the other did. But even the other one did work right.

The doc sent me to a specialist. He lectured me that "no you wont get two black eyes-this is NOT a rhinoplasty ( his patients always get confused apparently)".

So I got the operation. There is a short recovery time when youre forced to breath through your mouth, and both nostrils filled in with cardboard like stuff while your septum heals. Was only a day or two. But then they take it all out- and wow- its great. Both pistons firing the way theyre supposed for the first time in my life. My nose even looked better- and more symetrical.

My condition was probably worse than average. So it might have been more worth it for me than for others, but still id recomend it.

I generally don't breath through my nose. I have multiple allergies and nasal polyps. Between the two my nasal cavities are pretty much closed all the time.

I chose "very well." Unless I'm sick with a cold, I breathe out of my nose. I hate breathing out of my mouth, because my lips get severely chapped within a very short period of time. My lips will get mildly chapped just from a 30-minute dental appointment.

OP: you are very quiet, and as you are a new member, I can't help but have a little suspicion that this is a troll trying to have a laugh at our expense.

Perhaps you could put my mind at rest and explain what this is all about?

I've been wondering that too. I answered simply because I really don't like breathing through my nose, probably due to hay fever. But I really cannot see what it could have to do with autism. Hope this isn't going to be another mooncanvas!

I've decided it is a troll.

Some person snickering into their sleeve at how thick we all are and how gullible that we can be that easily wound up to believe something so utterly ridiculous.

Well OP, FYI we aren't. We are just honest people who don't play those stupid games. Sad for people that do though, if such puerile things make such great entertainment for them.

And another FYI, is that many things in the world might seem strange but are true nevertheless, and thankfully many of us on WP have such creative and unique ways of thinking that we are able to entertain ideas that may seem odd to those that can only think (dully) inside the box. That's why there was an expression created "Strange, but true." and the other one "Truth is often stranger than fiction." So if your sleeve is full of dribble from all your snickering and guffawing, perhaps you might like to chew on that now.

I can't even be bothered to report this to a mod. P'raps someone else can...
