Swollen Turbinate from lead obstruction or thrombosis
I have a swollen Turbinate in my right nostril . I saw an ENT who diagnosed me with rhinitis. I asked him if it could have anything to do with my pacemaker and he said no, not event related. However the Turbinate vascular structure drains into the brachiocephalic vein which is right next to pacemaker lead insertion. I have a follow up appointment with my cardiologist.
Has anyone else had blood flow issues in your head due to thrombosis or lead blockage/ obstruction? I've also had headaches and weird feelings in neck and head ever since pacemaker placement.
Just looking for feedback and insight on other people's similar issues.
