When it rains it pours for me when it comes to health-related issues.† I found out today from the dentist of all people that I have a bad sinus infection.† I have been having headaches that are more severe than usual and my family doctor and I both attributed the change and increase in severity to my lack of sleep and my back issues.
I also have had a tooth that needed a filling because of a cavity so here the last week I was attributing my headaches and tooth pain to the bad tooth.† Wednesday night I was up all night and didn’t sleep at all because of the pain in my mouth and in my head.† Then yesterday morning I started throwing up and knew that I was fighting some sort of infection.† Again I assumed it was my tooth and for the first time ever I was actually looking forward to going to the dentist yesterday to get the problem taken care of.
When I got to the dentist’s office, they took me back immediately.† I know I looked really bad and the staff gave me pitiful looks.† The dental assistant took an x-ray of my tooth and that is how they found out the problem was my sinuses.† The tooth that needed the filling and that was bothering me is the tooth that is right at the sinuses.† On the x-ray I could tell that there was something wrong and that there was a lot of swelling going on.† My dentist gave me a prescription for antibiotics and I hope I start feeling better.† I didn’t do anything at all yesterday except for going to the dentist.††
What is odd is that I have had a lot of trouble with sinus infections in the past and I can’t†believe I didn’t†put the symptoms together.† Once I get a sinus infection I have a terrible time getting rid of them.† Back a few years ago I was treated 10 times for†sinus infections in a little over a year.†
I hope you start to feel better soon. I have had a headache that feels like it is in my dural sinus for 6 days now, and all I can do with four kids and a husband is work and crash.
You should try this. You can use a simple spray that is both antibacterial and antifungal to bring the level of microbes in your sinuses back under control. I have seen this done sucessfully for about 10 years and even was involved in a clinical study to show the efficacy. This is much less traumatic than surgery, costs less and has worked in cases where surgery failed. The protocol is a bit arduous in that you have to spray this stuff in your nose every 20 to 30 minutes, but the cost is usually around $30 to treat a chronic infection and it takes only about 2 weeks so it’s worth it. If you wanted to try this before surgery (or your next bout of antibiotic) I would suggest that you take a look at this web site. There is a you-tube video link that is very informative on the subject. It’s at http://www.sinusitis-cure.net/sinus-relief2.php It’s worth viewing.
Hi, I have suffered with sinus infections for years. Did your x-ray or cat scan show anything? I had a cyst on my maxillary sinus floor, told that was not the problem. Finally told it was. Surgery didn’t work well. Turns out I had an infected tooth, didn’t show on x-ray. Dentist went in found two diseased roots. Had root canal, helped some. There are special I think cat scans for dental problems. My son has sinus problems too. Found out that he has a primary immune deficiency it can cause sinusitis. Also he had a Vitamin D deficiency! Important for the immune system. He had sinus surgery recently, he had a broken nose in the past and he had a choncha bulbosa. In surgery they take out some of the turbinates sometimes, this was done to my son. I read that is not good. Do research. Good luck!
