Sinus problems

(5 Posts)

Have had sinus problems and infections off and on for yrs, but it's now become a constant pain /feeling like there is something blocking them, pressure, or polyps, feels similar to how people describe deviated septum, and polyps. Have had enough now and have a doctors appointment tomorrow. Really want to be referred to specialist but have a feeling I will be fobbed off with a different steroid nose spray.can I insist on referral? Would really like to get to the bottom of this...

Posting with interest. DD has this and her dentist was very concerned, said she should press for referral..

Well my doctor referred me no problem! So waiting for the appointment... It did help that I've suffered with this for over a year, have tried various steroid sprays, no help, done netti pots etc and now getting worse.. Will be glad to find out what it is!

I've been using a Neti Pot. I can now breathe through my nose, which never happened before using it.

That's good Spanking. I'm going to look up Neti Pot for DD..
