Hey,ive had allergy related illnesses since I was a baby. My first sinus infection was when I was 3 weeks old!
After this,I had a ear infection every 2 weeks,my ear drum busted when I was 3.
Then the problems turned into strep throat every month,till I came down with scarlet fever when I was 7.
Then after that I never tested positive for strep again,NEVER!!
I moved from ILL to Oklahoma right after I had scarlet fever when I was 7.
Then my allergies and ear,nose and throat problems had disappeared,till I was 25,then the sinus troubles came back.
I dont know if my sinus problems are do to the fact I have ms,or not, but I was dx with ms when I was 26.
Last fall,I had 6 sinus infections.
A MRI I did for a ms flare this june,showed I had a polyp in my sinus cavity. so my neuro sent me to a ENT who did a CT scan,It didnt show what my neuro was seeing,but it did show that my left maxillary cavity was 90% blocked.
Just this summer I had a allergy test done.The skin one didnt work so the ENT dr did a blood test,that came back negitive for any allergens for our area. weired!!
Now this fall,im having troubles with my maxillary sinus.
I have pain in my face,the whole left side. My jaw,and teeth on my top half of my face,are throbbing,and I have a whole lot of pressure.
My question is,does the surgery to drain my maxillary cavity really work,and for how long,is it wroth all the troubles?
