Maxillary sinus pain

Posted , 3 users are following.

Does anyone have maxillary sinus pain? I have it primarily on one side and have a sinus cyst and some low grade inflammation. Been to ENT's & RHINOLOGISTS. All said to check dental which I did & had 2 teeth removed.

Lately, my other maxillary sinus is sensitive too. I also have deep pain in the lower corner side of nose. I have had dental xrays.

I just want answers!! also my nose hurts. really bad but drs are perplexed. It feels tight and sore to move. I hate this BS! Going mad.

    hi yes I have chronic sinus inflammation. ir is a nightmare. You mention sore nose...is it sore and dry inside? If so I can suggest something which can majorly help but sadly can't give you a solution to overall problem. My issue is connected to an auto immune auto inflammatory disorder so won't go anytime soon.

      yes my inside of nose is dry and painful! DR's dont think its an autoimmune thing because i dont have other symptoms that go with it but i am going to get checked anyway. I feel like its an infectious thing but am not taken seriously. My nose hurts so much.

      I have a remedy for the pain inside the nose which is to spray a steroid nasal spray over the inside of your nose without inhaling it. Gets rid of that burning sore inside your nose.

    Hi

    I am sure we have chatted before now . I too have a max cyst and swear to god this is the problem ! It causes an awful lot of pain and pressure. ENT and maxillofacial keep passing me backwards and forwards and even my dentist too. They dont believe that the cyst is the issue but i swear it is. the cyst puts pressure on my nose and teeth as the roots of my teeth are buried within the cyst. Also i get an awful taste in my mouth from the constant post nasal drip and i also believe i can taste it in the roof of my mouth, like its seeping through in some weird way. It seems if you're in America you're more likely to be offered cyst removal but in the UK we have no chance! I swear this is down to funding etc. I was also told by one ENT that if they did remove it, it may cause more issues as it can cause scarring in the sinuses! Just feels like I'm doomed and will have to put up with the pain forever! I get severe headaches on the same side as the cyst too and ear pain fullness!

    All we can do is keep trying. one thing i have bought recently are tablets from ebay called mucas relief tablets, which contain Guaifenesin . I have had some relief using these but only temporary! They cost me a tenner and are probably still available if tou wanted to try them? keep us posted!

      We know our bodies! We must keep going for answers! I did go to MOUNT SINAI in NYC. I did not get much time and he did not get to look at my disc for sinuses. SO I was disapointed. I asked about my nose & he did scope he didnt see any infection however i told him I do get sticky mucous in back of nose & can be colored. I told him I was on nasal antibiotic cream a lot incase it was staph but the cream didnt help. HE thinks I may have an overgrowth of a bacteria but to rinse using XYITOL & take pre & probiotics.

      SO I have been doing that past week. I do not see much mucous since doing it. I also bought MANUKA honey to do a sinus rinse with. I will keep going back to these drs if things dont get better. I am tired of being tossed around like you. I am exausted emotionally & quite frankly am getting depressed. BUT YES THE darn cyst does cause pressure and fullness feeling in that sinus cavity. UGH

      ALSO I believe we did correspond in the sinus cyst forum. Besides the cyst do you have some inflammation as well in your sinus cavity? I have both & Rhinologists have said its inflammation not infection and to use sinus rinse ans steroid spray. WHEN I bend over i get a fullness feeling in that cavity. Do you?

      hi Maxcyst- Any updates with you? I am sorry you have been dealing with this fir so long. I am getting my cyst & maxillary sinus cleaned next month. I do not know if this will solve anything but I need to start ruling things put. I have deep pain where a polyp is next to my nose. It gives me deep pressure like someone is pressing their finger into the side of nose & nostril. I will post an update. Like you I feel like I have untreated issues in my sinus. It sucks! I have been on many meds as well. Also been radiated a ton with dental imaging. Turns out when I had a tooth extraction a couple years ago the oral surgeon left my sinus cyst a lone. Its sitting above the extraction site so I hope that cleaning everything out will help!

    I just saw another Rhinologist & showed him images on scan. I tell these dr's the pain I am feeling & how it hurts if I sleep on the side of the sinus cavity & the pressure & sensitivity I have & basically get the same responses of they dont think its an infection & for me to get a follow up scan in a year or 2 to monitor sinus cavity. At this point whatever. I am so done with this crap.
