Sinus Relief

Sinus, headache, and allergy update


I had a very bad sinus infection. Great globs of yellow kept coming and coming. Then a cold joined in for a week, and then my allergies caused problems. I’m currently on day 9 of my antibiotic. Most of the sinus junk is out but I noticed a little today that was left. I also noticed that I still get a sinus headache and pressure. The pressure is about 20% of what it used to be and it’s generally around my eye and between the eyebrows:ethmoid. I probably had it before but the maxillary sinus pain was overwhelming. This is nothing. I noticed how the eyebrow pain radiates a little to the top of my head too.

As for my smell and taste, I still can’t smell much at all. This past week I smelled a little from a vanilla candle and a brownie mix. I can consistently taste vanilla, lemon, and a mothball taste from some vanilla additives. And chocolate! Some times I get a feeling that I am going to get overwhelmed by a smell. That is what many sinus surgery patients talk about. I haven’t smelled that much!

As fall picks up, I continue to sinus rinse 2x a day. I am planning on purchasing a humidifier this fall/winter because we get low humidity in our house, and for the past few years, we have had most of the sinus pain during those times.
