Unfortunately, I cannot provide an answer to your questions regarding any relationship between "Olbus oil" and the sensations that your describe. However, it is extremely unlikely that these sensations in the back of your nose are related to leukemia.

@ColourPurple, I feel what you're going through. You're not the only one. Don't give up. I'm going through the same exact thing. It's terrilbe and uncomfortable. It's tourmenting and depressing. I've been going through it for about 4 years coming to almost 5 years now. I've been through every ENT doctor in Atlanta. After I had my deviated septum fixed. I didn't had no problems breathing out of my nose before I did the stupid surgery in December of 2005. I had all 4 four of my wisdom teeth removed early April of 2005. I felt fine a couple of months after. Until September of 2005. I've been experiencing some discomfort in my forehead. I felt like a nail was going through my forehead. I was having sharp headaches and all. I did some X-Rays and my former family doctor. Who is now deceased. Recommended me to see a ENT. When he was alive that is. I tried everyting to get rid of this problem and nothing worked. I'm still trying to find some new ways on how get rid of this problem. Once in all. Good Luck to you. I hope everything works out for you.

Take Care
