a big,big thank you to everyone that replied to my post.i feel really embarrassed that i whinged so badly yesterday.reading all of your posts,it seems this is a big problem for lots of people.yes,i do use saline rinses each day but they are not helping.if i went to the hospital,it will be a 10 hour plus wait and then i will end up waiting in the er for the next day or so.there are not enough nurses and doctors in our public hospitals in australia.
the allergist i am booked into is the only one around.it is a 15 month wait and i have tried and tried to get in earlier but no luck.i don't have the money to persue immunotherepy and things like that but i am so sick all the time.
i had a sinus operation on my face and nose over 25 years ago and i got 10 years relief.my symptons were different back in those days.i suffered runny noses and sneezing and basically felt like i had a headcold non stop.i can't afford to go in that direction now even if the specialist found problems.
if i go through the hospital,it will be a 4 year wait,if not longer just to see someone about
my problems.i am on my 3rd year of trying to get help in the public hospital for my chronic bladder pain.
i can't afford to go private.i can't work because of all my chronic pain issues and i have 3 teenage kids to look after.my hubby works but it is a struggle each day.i will look up the areas for pain to push on my feet and hands.i did not even think of that one.i took my last steroid today.after that the pain will hit really bad again.this morning is the first morning my face has not been on fire and in agony.it still hurts but i am hoping things will improve with the antibiotics.
this situation with sinus problems is awful.i feel so sorry for everyone who is dealing with this.i don't like having chronic sinusitis.my allergies are causing it.i will need to find out what i am allergic too first and go from there.thanks for caring about
me everyone.that has meant the world to me.i feel so alone in my life of chronic pain and illnesses and it is nice to have people show concern about
me who don't even know me.take care guys.
