Is it worth seeing a GP for a sinus thing?

I think I have some sort of sinus thing. Bit of an ache above one eye, eye has been watering for a few days. I also have ridiculously bad allergy which has flared up over the past few months, making me generally sneezy and miserable.

Would I be wasting a GP's time? I feel like I would.

Yes definitely, I was given a nasal spray and antibiotics after battling with sinisitus for weeks and weeks. I feel so much better now, I didn't realise just how poorly I was feeling.

Maybe it is sinusitis then and not an allergy! Hmm. Thank you smile

If it is an allergy they might help you with that too. I had my first hay fever free summer this year thanks to a new nasal spray from the nurse!
