Hi I have suffered with Sinus issues over the last few years,

Customer Question

Hi

I have suffered with Sinus issues over the last few years, but in the last 1 it's become more of a problem
The doctor keep prescribing me doxycycline, and where this has helped in the past I feel that I'm getting used to them, at last I have an apt with ENT in my area, as its been going on so long i'm concerned that its something else
I have pressure around my nose, and it can go under my eye socket, which causes a headache that can go from the back of my head to the front, as well as feeling sick, as well as feeling sort of 'spaced out' with a whoozy feeling
can the weather effect Sinus, and could a decongestant such as Sudafed and some antihistamine help?
Thanks

Dr. P Jyoti :

headaches are a very typical sign of sinusisis

Dr. P Jyoti :

and the symptoms that you describe of pressure around the eye socket and nose, are very typical

Dr. P Jyoti :

the weather can certainly affect sinusitis, it is more in cloudy weather for example

Dr. P Jyoti :

it is good that you are scheduled for an ENT examination

Dr. P Jyoti :

this should enable you to get a diagnosis

Dr. P Jyoti :

discuss with your doctor about sinusitis

JACUSTOMER-4ph5gw3g- :

I know this, but am after an alternative treatment, as I cant rely on anti bots all the time, any ideals???

Dr. P Jyoti :

ask about doing a CT scan of the sinuses

Dr. P Jyoti :

this is very necessary for a diagnosis and treatment

Dr. P Jyoti :

some of the alternative treatments that you can try yourself are:

Dr. P Jyoti :

Fluids: drink plenty of water.

Dr. P Jyoti :

Humidifier: use a humidifier in your room since drying of the sinuses can cause this.

Dr. P Jyoti :

Warm compresses: warm compresses on the sinus areas will give relief.

Dr. P Jyoti :

Vit. C supplement: 1000 mg Vit. C supplements daily (available OTC).

Dr. P Jyoti :

N- Acetyl Cysteine: this is a supplement available at natural food stores which helps drainage.

Dr. P Jyoti :

try these steps

Dr. P Jyoti :

Sudafed and antihistaminics are also very useful for sinusitis

Dr. P Jyoti :

your ENT doctor is likely to advise you for them

Dr. P Jyoti :

try these steps till you get to the doctor, they will surely give you relief

Dr. P Jyoti :

at the same time, discuss thoroughly with your doctor
