MVanessa, so sorry you're feeling ill. Chronic sinus infections can be quite horrible. Are you seeing an ENT specialist ? Have you had a CT Scan of your sinuses?
Something you could try is a saline nasal spray that you can get at Sams c lub. Some people here use a nasal wash, these don't work for me as they make my nose bleed. Have you tried breathing in some steam?
Really, Really, Hope you'll feel better real soon.

Sinus infections are horrible! They make you miserable and they hurt. By chance, have you ever had your adnoids or tonsils removed yet? I used to get horrid sinus infections and no sooner did I get off the antibiotics, I would get another. This went on for years and then I had my tonsils and adnoids removed because of recurrent strep. Lo and behold, my sinus infections ceased. I have hardly been sick in the past 6 years due to strep or sinus infections. I do still however get the occasional cold but I can handle those compared to the alternative!

Yes, sinus infections are terrible. I have chronic sinusitis so I know what your going through. I would purchase some sinus rinses. You, can get them at any pharmacy or drug store. They clean the nasal passage out. Help with the sinus pressure and pain, and congestion. Warm compresses on your face where the pressure is could help ease pain. Good Luck! have a nice day. Brandi. :-)
