Where the Sinuses Roam

Something is majorly wrong with my sinuses... I've had constant pain for several weeks now, and it is progressively worsening.

I know it's not allergies -- I was tested for allergies about a year ago and I am allergic to nothing.

I have tried decongestants, and they do not help me what-so-ever.

I don't know what's wrong, but it's almost to the unbearable stage.


  1. IANAD, but if it's been weeks and decongestants don't help it's probably a sinus infection. I'd go to a doctor to get it looked at.

    If it is an infection, an antibiotic will clear it up in a few days, but leaving it alone could cause problems.

  2. ... that's kind of where the story gets a little scary to me (as it's a little deeper than I presented in the post).

    See, this most recent stint of pain started just after finishing a couple weeks of antibiotics (which did help a little bit).

    And chronic sinus infections aren't new to my life. Last time, it took surgery to clear them up... I think I'm sort of in denial that such may be the case again... in fact, I'm going to pretend it isn't...

    (I do have an appointment with my doctor, though.)

  3. Ouch. I'm sorry. :(

    I hope the doc can get you straightened out.

    ... your sinuses, that is.

  4. haha... many have tried...
