Hi!!I am new to this group, I'm looking for some help or answers.Sorry for my bad English..
I have been suffering from sinuses pain at last ten years.I'm 48 man from Croatia.
In January i went to my ENT and i have been diagnosis with vasomotor and allergic Rhinitis and chronic laryngitis!!
I also have reflux under therapy.
22.02-I have the flu,badly sinus congestion,and bronchitis.I was constantly getting post nasal drip and coughing up phlegm.Sinuses pressure was very painful.I did try inhaling 2-3 days with Essential oil in boiling water (buy in my drugstore)and I felt consistent relief from sinuses pressure.
25.02.When I went to the doctor I was given Antibiotics for bronchitis.That day I discovered that i unable to smell!!
Unable to smell hardly anything for 5-6 days.After 5-6 day my smell are slowly beck.(30%)Taste is OK.
I have tried 2 different ENTs after flu and I have been diagnosis with chronic rhinosinusitis,edema of the nasal mucosa..
Therapy:Nasonex 2x2 for first 14 days than 1x2 another 14 days..From 08 March..Saline nasal spray,Rinse nasal passages,B vitamins!!
18.03-CT scan show that my left turbinate is swollen,no nasal polyps,retention cysts 7x10 mm at the bottom right Maxillar sinuses with edema mucosa.The left Maxillar sinuses have thickened edges on the mucous membrane.Rest of my sinuses look normal.
I'll be an allergy test 18.04 (I've never been allergic to anythig)
28.03 I went my ENT and after he seen my CT he told me to continue with Nasonex 1x2!!He said The cause of the discomfort and the diminished sense of smell is in the swelling of the mucous membranes of the nasal shells
I suffer from burning pain and dryness in my nose with pain in the bridge and behind.At the moment, I have no mucus on my nose.Often i feel blocked nose.Constant "clamping" and crackling feeling on my right nostrils.No sneezing or running nose!No Headache.Pain under my left eye..Cigarette smoke and pollution are huge triggers..
I tried pretty much everything to overcome,steroid sprays-nasonex (4 weeks-) nasal sprays,nasal irrigation.I'm taking a break from nasonex,6 days now to see what's happend.I think the
Still I have not found any consistent relief. My anxiety does play a role in making me feel worse.I've been experiencing fatigue,stuffy nose (worse at night when lying down,mainly in the right nostril)where it feels mostly blocked and pressure,congested,dry mouth exspecially night,loud constant tinnitus (left ear).
I also planing go to a neurologist..
I can smell properly when i put my nose close to something that i sniffing.
Will be my smell be better once when all the inflammation had gone and Tinnitus much lower?
I feel that i that my sense of smell is poorer since i stoped with Nasonex.
Is it becuse swlling??
