Hi guys. I am new to the site and new to being ill in general so really must need some independent advice. It started around March this year, really tight headaches, burning around my eyes, dizzyness, burning nose, feeling sick and at some times really really tired. This alongside the most phlem I think I have ever had, even resorting to hocking up at work sometimes. Googling all the symptoms convinced me that this was a brain tumour at first, mainly because I was certain my sight was being affected and the headaches were pretty intense. An eyetest revealed I was very slightly long sighted but this did not cure the headaches so after around 5 GP visits I was given the chronic sinusitus diagnosis. Great I thought, antibiotics and various sprays and it will be gone forever. Well over the course of about 8 months I have had 4 or 5 different antibiotics and about 6 different sprays, all have had varying effects but after a while I have returned to my zombie like state. So I then convince myself it must be sinus cancer because it wont go it must be serious right? My appointment at the ENT specialist and tube up the nose didnt show this just a nasty infection and inflamation so another 4 weeks of antibiotics and more sprays. Also a CT scan was booked and completed. The antibiotics I think improved my condition somewhat but now they have run out and it all seems back to sqare one again. The CT scan results are in but a doctor cannot see me to discuss until February! I guess this is a good sign, surely if anything serious they would sqeeze me in before then? Anyway being as worried as I am I asked for a copy of the results to be emailed to me. So 3 things really. 1:does anybody fancy translating them into English me for? 2: is it normal to go through the day feeling miserable, almost depressed because of the condition thinking about it all of the time? 3: Are there any miracle cures ie herbs, vitamins. So far I have tried inhaling steam, using a neilmed pot with solution, all antiiotics and sprays available. Sorry for the long message I just hope somebody may be able to help me
