    Hi, I really feel for you, I have lived with these symptoms for many years, if all else fails try Menthol Crystals inhaled through your nose in very hot water, they need to be strong, it makes your eyes water, but takes away a lot of the symptoms, you have to wait awhile until thing settle down but should help you sleep, you can buy them at most chemists. Good luck.

      Thanks Mary . I can take a stuffy nose okay but did you get the tooth/gum pain too? I have it especially at night when my heads on the pillow. I also get slight tingling in my head and face which I do worry about thinking it might be something else.

      Take care

      Yes I did Richard, I have the same thing, just make sure it's not a gum infection causing the pain, try Cordosyl mouthwash with interdental brushes, also Olbas Oil on the pillow, be generous, at night, hope this helps, I have tried every spray and pill going, but find these help the most, with the odd pain killer. Take care Jo.

    The top (maxillary) teeth have roots that can be very close to the sinuses. If the sinuses are inflamed, you will feel it in your teeth. Be sure that you get checked out by a dentist, as it could be an infected tooth that causes the pain, also. I have found that Sudafed (the real stuff) can help reduce pain from sinuses.

    I can just complete jooley75 intervention, common causes of sinusitis:

    - Allergies: hay fever, dust mites and others. Best solution is going to an allergic clinic.

    - problem with sinus estructure: blocked internal sinus, low turbinates overgrown, polyps, in this case an ENT may go for a surgery.

    - infected tooth: less common but totally possible.

    so you need to visit a dentist and an ENT and insist until you get a ct scan and an allergy test.
