Hello everyone, im writting cause don't want esle to do been dealing with this senerio for 5 months
I have had this chronic inflamation in my sinuses no driping of the nose, no green or yellow mucus, pain between my eye and
slight headaches, done 2 ct scan one of my sinuses in February and one in the er In april 14 of my head with includes brain, sinuses, face bones and ears. my ears show slight redness in my ear they said
but my sinuses were clear, figure that and my lung where clear any yet my Oxygen was 86% no fever severe dizziness. And I had just finishe 2 courses of 500mg of 3 day zitromax. And my
doctor send to the hospital cause I deveolpe ear infection while
on the zitromax, the gave me argumentin 875 mg 2 times a day for 10 day for my ear and sinus, mind you I told then that this would make my 4 course of argumentin with no result.
would fell a little better but as soon as I stop, 2 says later full blown inflammation. Saw 3 ent in the past 5 month last one said I had no sinusitis just some inflammation in the nasal cavities. Use some saline spray.and more flonose. Still severely lightheaded, it been 2 week since the er and my systems are stiil the same. Mind by this time I've been on 6 course of antibiotics. Today my oxygen was back to 89 so was put on a 6 day pack of methylperdnislone for the inflammation and I guess so I could breath. Just finished the frist line 2 in the morning 1 for lunch 1 for dinner and 2 for bed times. In the morning I took the 2 and my flonse inhaler and my nose bleed for five minutes had to pinch it for a good 4 minutes so it would stop. After dinner I started to bleed a little for my nose. But this time was just a couple of drop it happen when I bented down to pick up something, frist I thought my nose was draining, but no such luck. Decide no to use the flonse during the course of the steriods, I think it might be to steroids. I also saw a allergist and did all the testes and all came back neg. So she give me azelastine spray even dow my testes where neg, it's a very expensive antihistamine nasal spray try once and I could even hardly get out of be very sleepy it might of increase the affect because I take 0.5 mg of klonopin twice a day, don't really know. Again at my wits end, was doing my saline raises twice a day but had to stop, because your not supposed to raise with ear infections. If anyone one has gone through my sistuation
please share on how you got better, I aslo here that the steriods the I'm on now are more potent, if anyone has been on these please let me know how they made you feel once into the course. And if it cure thier system. Dont know what esle to 5 months is a long time not to feel like you cant breath, very little sleep in increase anxiety mode. God help me.

Do you know if you suffer from GERD or silent gerd (you sliding have the classic symptoms of gerd.
I have terrible problems with my sinuses constant post nasal drip that doesn't run out if my nose instead down the back of my throat, chronic throat clearing, burning throat, ear pain, facial pain and teeth pain, chronic cough. I've had mri scan of my sinuses and they came back clear ive had alergy testing which was negative. All of my symptoms have been attributed to reflux. They won't rule out Asthma until inhave had my redo fundoplication. If you have any of the symptoms ive mentioned then maybe it maybe something you look further into. Hope you get some answers soon.

Chronic sinus problems are sometimes caused by fungal sinus infections, which can be made worse by antibiotics or steroids. Consider consulting a Naturopathic Physician for help.

Chronic Lyme, Bart., Gluten & Sulfite Sensitivity, Many Food/Inhalant/Medication/Chemical Allergies & Intolerances, Asthma, Gut dysmotility & non-specific inflammation, Lupus, Osteoporosis, etc.; G-Tube; TPN-dependent
Meds: Flagyl, Essential Oils, Homeopathy, Herbs, etc.

there is an answer-keep trying to find one.
Sometimes finding your cure is a long journey.
one thing you might check is your upper jaw, a chronic infection there can
cause chronic sinus issues. Root canals have been known to be a cause of this.
just a thought-good luck-keep trying there is a cure out there

Dairy can cause sinus problems but I can talk about the root canal issue. My girlfriend had a root canal tooth that was giving her problems. She was using oil of oregano to control the pain because she didn't want to lose the tooth. She was constantly having sinus problems and developing colds and sore throats. We live together and follow the same diet but I never get colds or get sick. Finally the pain in the tooth got too bad and she had it remove. She hasn't had sinus problems or a cold since them. If you are experiencing problems with your teeth get them taken care of. If your teeth are infected it will effect other parts of your body.

Its amazing how many stories there are of people cleaning out their root canals and getting better.
I have heard so many stories of people getter better after pulling root canals out, taking metal out an cleaning out cavitations
Nobody wants to tackle jaw issues but its usually the cause and cure
