I have had pain on and off for years that I always thought was sinus infections but it is ALWAYS the bridge of my nose. There is no mucus that is green, hardly any congestion. Just this terrible pressure and pain in the bridge of my nose and it seriously feels like someone punched me there.
I have had CT scans that come back normal. I had sinus surgery in 2012 and things seemed to improve for awhile. The more stressed out I get, the more pain and pressure comes. Advil and tylenol do nothing to ease it. I find steaming my face helps and sleep. I`ve had numerous rounds of antibiotics that seem to help but then it just comes back.
The doctors are now thinking I have migraines but the pain is only there. It is driving me crazy. I`m supposed to have ethmoid and sphenoid surgery Dec 9th but my ENT doesn`t think its necessary but he is willing to try. I`m currently taking Paxil 20 mg, pulmicort in a saline rinse for my nose, reactine 20 mg, Nasonex. One thing that has helped is Bromelian.
I see my ENT in a week and want to discuss Midfacial segment Pain. I would like to try amitripylane.
I`m so tired of being in constant pain. Sometimes my bridge and sides of my nose feel numb from all the pressure.
How do I approach my ENT with this...
