Here we go. Since discussing my scans with Dake I tried to figure out what the muscles around my stenosis are used for and found that they contract whenever I sniff, apparently to aid holding up the windpipe. Now it so happens that I sniff a lot because of a chronic sinus infection I had for many years, and I have to use considerably more strength when inhaling through the nose than through the mouth. I seriously wonder whether this is what caused this narrowing in my case, and maybe in yours...?!
HOLY shit! I get punch to my nose when I was 15 and that on I always have something problems on my nose, it oftenly even bleeds and another nose hole is almost blocked.
and gess what? that almost blocked one is left one.... just like my left jug is more narrow
I LOL here:D this theory is sooooo good
