I live in Atlanta Georgia. We have had an extremely dry summer and fall so far. about
three weeks ago I started with sinus headaches that come and go..I feel stuffy at times and my ears bother me. I went to the doctor and he said that there was a sinus bug going around. He gave me a decongestant for my nose and a medication for me ears to dry out any fluid..
Well after about three days on medication I was feeling better. Last weekend I spent some time outdoors and the headaches started back.
I am wondering ( and probably should not self diagnose here) if I am suffering from ragweed allergies. I have some coworkers with same symptoms who have been diagnosed with this. Once swears by Nasonex and I am thinking of calling my doctor to see if he can prescribe that for me as well without another visit.
Any comments would be appreciated. I realize as you all do that these days we have to take an active part in our own treatment and health.
