Hello all, new here.
 
I am constantly having numerous symtoms with my head in general.

I just had 5 cyst removed from my sinus's about 4 months ago and that did away with some issues. My eye was twitching, neck always hurt, cheek was going numb, bloody nose, sore nose, etc. The surgury has taken care of some of it.
 
 
But the other problems are not going away. They are, sore jaw, cheek swelling, sore glands on neck, and sore nose. I use to dip, have been stopped about 6 months now, did for about 3 years. So of coarse I am paraniod about cancer. I had two CT scans, and two MRI's in the two years running up to surgery and they didn't show much. The Dr. that did the surgery really did not feel that I needed it, but I pressed for it. Afterwards he said he was very suprised to find all that he did. Prior to the surgery both of the Dr's that ordered the CT scans said they could see one cyst and enlarged lymph nodes. But once in surgery he found 5 cyst the size of grapes, and lots of polyps. He told me he was suprised I went this long with it. I have had most of these problems on and off for 5 years, but now its almost constant. They did fix a deviated septum as well. Also he said I have a twist in I believe my sinus's, not sure on that.
 
But again, now on and off (every other week) my jaw gets sore, throat feels tight, cheek swells, face is slighty saggy on one side, nose gets very sore, and eye feels dry. (all on the right side only) The Dr says I have tons of inflamation, but he doesn't know why. He is a very well respected Dr., and famous. My general practioner has no clue what could be the problem. Even went to a Othopedic, and he said everything looked great.

I am 27 years old, had sinus problems my whole life, just not constant like it has been in the past year or so. 6' 2" and I weigh 280, healthy. I run 2 to 3 miles almost everyday and lift weights.  Just had a physical Monday because I am doing a agility test for Sheriff's dept job. Don't drink or smoke.
 
Let me know if I need to add anymore details or if this doesn't make sense.
Any help or advice would be great. I know this is a mixed bag.

Also, the Dr. did cultures and that came back good, no growth. He does not feel its any type of allergy.

Sorry this is gross, but I do have thick white snot, but not a lot. Very little since surgery.
