So I have been to several doctors in the last 2 years. I have always had allergies and sinus problems, unfortunately. However it has gotten worse... I now experience frequent (3-4 a month) of migraine like headaches that put me in bed for 3-4 days at least,that start from pressure in my sinuses. The only thing that gets rid of these is when I feel popping in my face/ sinuses. Everyone says are you sure it isn't your ears? Which, YES I am sure, it is definitely in my face. I also have frequent and sometimes painful popping in my ears, my right more than left. It seems to be a lot worse during cold weather months. I have been to ENT several times but get pushed off with nasal rinses etc. I am sick and tired of this and wondering if anyone knows what this might be? P.S. have had 2 ct scans of my sinuses and the results were normal ?

  • I too have had popping sinuses. I have told my doctor that my face feels like it is vacuum packed. He recommended an over the counter product called PONARIS. If your pharmacy does not carry it on the shelf they can order it. They are nasal oil drops which coats your sinuses and it is a miracle!!! Suffer through the first few applications as it has a horrible taste/smell like (cabinet stain) but you will become accustomed and it is so WORTH it!Trust me...just try it a few times..you will not regret it.

  • Definitely try taking dairy products (milk, cheese, yoghurt, chocolate, icecream) out of your diet, as ear infections and sinus are caused by these. try goats, soy, rice milk instead.
