Chronic sinus infection!!! Help

Edited , 8 users are following.

Hi! I've been sick for going on 4 months now. I've recently found out I need sinus surgery. I have gone through every syptoms and emotion possible. What my question is, is recently I've had panic attacks. Going on about two weeks now. Feel very irritable, angry and tired. Sometimes (and I'm guessing from the panic attacks) I will feel like I'm in a dream state and my eye sight seems extremely clear. I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced these syptoms with a chronic sinus infection! I'm hoping it goes away with surgery. Fingers crossed

Thanks Sara.

    Yes! Same here. Been very down the last two weeks. I have to keep telling myself it's just a side effect from the infection. I'm hoping the surgery helps. My panic attacks have gotten to the point were I feel like I have afibs. Went for a EKG and it was normal. It's so draining

      Yea basically ! lol I think I was allergic from something from vegas cause that's when it started and it was my first time going . But I actually have swollen turbinates do you? (When I flash a light in my nose it almost looks sealed up it looks swollen inside) how many ENT visits did it fake for them to decide surgery was best? I have my next visit till the 26th it's been like 2 months since I've gone. And I've been on steroid spray for 3 months already and nothing so I hope they don't lag it no more. And regarding your panic attacks who knows. Mine stopped I just have regular anxiety now. Could be you might just have anxiety now too rolleyes hopefully not tho! Try to exercise eat healthy and all that to relieve stress

    Hey, i've been suffering with this problem since i was 16, it started out as a strange pain through my head, after it got worse and worse i was eventually diagnosed with a sinus infection, i was put on antibiotics (didn't do sh*t) after 3 months i started honestly thinking i had a brain tumor, living constantly in fear everyday that something was wrong with my brain, i have been on tons of different antibiotics, but nothing seems to work, just recently, i noticed i've been getting these strange feelings through my body, my legs and my head and neck, moving my neck to the left or right makes me feel like i can't breathe, i had a cat scan and everythingg showed up clear, i had a mri done on my brain just incase and everything was good except i have a signus infection (also had blood tests done) i've been feeling like i'm not me, like i can move my arms and legs but it feels like i can't or don't know what i doing, my vision gets all strange almost like it's hd and it honestly scares me, even sometimes feels like i can't talk, i was put on paxil at the age of 17 (about two weeks ago) took it for 4 days and stopped because i read about how hard it is to get off of it, at this point i don't know what to do with myself, every day is a constant struggle, i have a appointment with a ent on friday, i wish you ALL the best.

      Still sick! I need sinus surgery and I've been waiting for almost two weeks to get the ok, still nothing! My panic attacks have changed symptoms to where it feels like I can't breath and have heart problems. I feel like it will never end!

    Been given antibiotics and steroids after almost 4-5 months of being sick. That makes my anxiety and panic worse and messes with my heart. I still haven't gotten an apt for sinus surgery. I feel like it will never end
