In Nov. got a headache above my left eye, going down the bone to my nose. Continuous dull pain. Got photophobia. Saw neurologist, treated w/ 6 day steroid course. Better for a week, relapsed. Treated w/ calcium blocker. No relief. In Feb. began using emergn C. 2 days after, drained thick yellow brown mucus like sinus infection, headache faded, photophobia disappeared. But area where cartilage joins the bones of my forehead began aching badly, small amounts of blood in discharge, and fevers. Saw a nasal specialist, said nothing wrong, based on scoping, CT Scan. Said was nerves. Neurologist says not w/ fever, blood. Saw another doc, he saw nasal polyps. Treated w/ 'roids, antibiotics, antifungals, nasal 'roids. Got better, til day w/ high pollen count. Relapsed. Given higher dose of 'roids. Felt better, til next day w/ high pollen count, Relapsed, now whole nose swollen, hot to touch up my left eyebrow. Anyone know what's wrong and/or some treatments? Already take flonase, gabapentin. If anyone can tell me what this is, or how to make the pain stop I would really appreciate it so much. Thank you for listening.
