Hi there, i have recently been suffering with what I think is sinus pressure. I feel like my nose and ears are blocked up and my head will really hurt up to the point I don't want to do much or think. I sometimes struggle to relax even while I'm just watching the Tv at home.
I recently had labrynthitus and acute sinnitus but that's going back about 6/7 weeks now and they actually cleared up for a while and then suddenly here I am again feeling really badly congested and sometimes feel like my vision is strange and unfocused. It doesn't really help that I have also had throat problems with swallowing and discomfort, which I am going for an endoscopy for soon (no date yet though)
My symptoms are:
Headaches and head pressure
Pain and aching in my cheeks, nose and sinus area
Sometimes neck ache if my head hurts
General blocked up feeling
I have been taking Sudafed but only when my blocked up feeling is at it's worse as my Doctor said too much of it can thin the blood. I also take paracetomal for my headaches and pain which does ease it for a little but I can still always feel it there. I have been using a nasal spray every morning and night too but again the doctor said do not use it constantly after 3 months.
I can't bend down quickly or move my head fast because I feel like I'll black out, and that's even when my symptoms are mild.
I have been off work for about 5 weeks and then I was off anyway for the school summer holidays because I work in a school: I need to go back to work on Wednesday and I'm worried that I'm still going to feel unwell but not be able to have any more time off unless I really need to.
I think I also have a tiny bit of anxiety, especially as I'm getting worried about work now! Trying to stay calm
I am getting annoyed and bored also because I don't feel like going out much.
Anyone who has similar symptoms or fancies a chat about them, please message me back!
