Does anyone else feel much worse when it rains?
Since I started taking antibiotics a few months ago, I've been experiencing a lot less sinus inflammation and actually thought I might be able to cross this symptom off my list soon.  That is until the last few days when it's been raising a lot in NY.  My sinuses are once again inflammed and painful and my eyes very puffy.  Then again, could it be a herx? 
Unfortunately, this does not respond at all to allergy or cold meds and I test negative on allergy tests.  Ugh!!

Yes, could be a herx...but also could be something else.

Rain = increase in mold in the air. Could be a fungal issue...either allergy or infection. Are you taking anything to combat systemic yeast?

Also, if the air pressure chages, that can affect the balance of water inside vs. outside of cells, leading to changes in symptoms.
