Hi all, following what was supposed to be bad tooth maxillary sinus infection, I developed horrific secondary sinusitis and now a condition that has me almost suicidal. I took antibiotics, antihistamines, nasal steroid spray and sinupret for over a month. When I stopped the meds. I also used saline spray, all to no avail. When I stopped using the meds, I had episodes of excruciating burning pain in my sinuses nose and ears and congestion which resulted in 2 ER visits and numerous doctors not knowing what is going on. At the moment, I have no mucus in my nose or sinuses, I suffer from burning pain and dryness in my nose ears and sinuses, they feel like open roomy cavities. My mucosa is so sensitive that every breath hurts, as does my throat when the cold and dry air lands on it. I can't sleep dues to pain, I'm signed off work and on pregabalin for pain. Can anyone offer insight on what may be going on? ENT said I may have vestibulitis, but the burning is not just at the entry of my nose, but inside the sinuses too. I can feel every bit of thicker mucus moving, and it has to be swallowed forefully. Basically, I feel like all the lining of my mucosa is damaged.
