After my C-section with my son 10 lbs, I started having sinus. Was very sick and in 9 months later I ended up with sinus surgery. That was back in 2000 and now its 2007. 7 years of sinus - its always there and I rarely get going without sinus. Fatigue and so on. Was heavily on antibiotics and tried different things even bought salt/water irrigation system. Nothing works! How do we really get rid of sinus? Had c-scan and showed no symptoms of sinus. Sinus heaches and pressures are always here. What possible could it be besides sinus? Having that kind of pressure and headaches are unpleasant thing to have.

  • With the fatigue AND sinus problems, I would try getting tested for thyroid disease. You can read about it at:http://thyroid.about.com/http://www.thyroidmanager.org/Written by doctors for doctors treating their patients.

  • check for something in your environment causing it---like household mold or an allergy...first eliminate the cause. Next, acupuncture might help some but you could begin with over the counter blended formulas specific for sinus..you would find that at health food stores...this could also be a food allergy--no cheese at all or milk for you...

  • I suffer from Chronic Sinusitus, I have never had a scopy done there to see for an obstruction, though my Father directly genetically related to me has had X-rays of the Sinus Cavities and he has obstructions from a Nosebreak. It seems genetic in the shape and allergic reactions. Plus today, more people have allergies it seems than in years before. Pollution who Knows? I have tried nasal washes, I have tried inhalants, I have tried inhalation therapy. I have tried drugs, steroids, and antihistamines. I have also tried to remove the Allergies associated with the condition. Although removing the problem is usually expensive. Carpets, Dust, Dirt, Mold, Cats, Dogs, Pollen, whatever else. You could start by getting a skin tap, something I've yet to do and find out what is irritating inflaming your passages. I honestly have to say the sinuses are a pain, and they always have given me antiobiotics as they do with you to prevent infections. I find that mine are not as bad in very very clean indoor inviroments, almost psycho-sanitary. So allergies are my root Evil, you have to know you root-evil to remove it. Seems that Doctors aren't always to sympathetic about this either, so it's something the individual must take care of... a mix of the right antihistamines usually will knockout it out for most.

  • For Sinus problems, the doctors will always give you Antibiotics which will make your symptoms worse as they suppress your immune system. The side effects are aweful. The long term side effects of antibiotics are even worse. From my personal experience, using of antibiotics for long time will lead to unpleasant diseases like psoriasis(which is what i have). So i would suggest consulting Naturopath/Homeopath. These remedies are safer to use and not a lot long term side effects. They work to improve your immunity unlike antibiotics which suppress your immune system and giving a way for other virus to attack you. After my C-section with my son 10 lbs, I started having sinus.

  • I have never heard of a skin condition derived from an antiobiotic. Ceritainly any medication can be toxic, so many of them. I think the Liver is the part I'd worry about with many and the many other side effects. Though if not for antibiotics more people would have died in the past 100 years than is the current population of the USA. They kill infection, infection cannot always be killed by your own immune system For Sinus problems, the doctors will always give you Antibiotics which will make your symptoms worse as they suppress your immune system.

  • Yeah. You are right. I got psoriasis because my liver is not working properly because of heavy medication. Anyway i had success with homeopathy and i suggested the same to you. It is your wish whether you want to try or not. My point was that we should reserve antibiotics for more serious infections. Anyway i am not here to argue, i was suggesting something alternative since conventional medicines are not working. I have never heard of a skin condition derived from an antiobiotic.

  • Ask your doctor to do a blood test to check your Eosinophil count. These are white blood cells. Commonly higher in asthmatics and people with mold intollerance they also fight parasites such as round worm. In my case I overproduce these cells and they clog up my sinus and lungs. Like you I had similiar recurrent sinus experiences, Doctors treated me with Antibiotics. I was on them almost monthly for 12 months but they didnt work. It wasnt until I went down with pneumonia and was admitted to hospital that they discovered I had Eosinophilic Pneumonia. Not sure if it is cronic. Treatment is prednisalone, symptoms are now under control. But I may be steroid dependant. Waiting to see what happens when I come off them.

  • Eosin, I was reprimanded for bringing up antibiotics for head infections. Although if what you're speaking of is Prednisone, I know 3 people personally who are dependant or have been dependant upon them. Side effects are severe.... i.e. osteoperosis, swelling of the face, etc.... My current Wife was to be wheelchair bound at the age of 20ish from Prednisone, they're miracle workers but not without side effects... Sadly there is no cure for Allergies, I'm personally looking into these so called Immunity Shots? I've heard about them for over a decade and they still sound like bologne to me, but we'll see... Best thing I know you can do is skintap yourself, and avoid all irritants as much as possible Doctors really could use some advancements. Too bad it's not Star Trek, with tricorders, and they make a little adjustment for your OverReactive Immune System? Most people don't even care if you suffer, unless they themselves suffer too! :) I guess with pollution the world will solve this sooner or later Ask your doctor to do a blood test to check your Eosinophil count.
