So for the past two years now I have dealt with sinus problems – everyday it’s the same routine with no let up!
Nothing so far has worked at all medication wise and trying all sorts diet wise with no luck either, I am booking in at the ENT to get a sinus cyst remove and a deviated septum widened to see if it helps (shown on a CT scan).
My biggest problem is sleep though now.
I wake up feeling like I have been hit with a bat in my sleep. Literally eyes swollen and red roar with tiredness. Congestion, neck pain and by 9am, I am fighting the need to sleep again despite getting a solid 9 hours and some mornings I can barely lift my head up. My eyes look black constantly with bags. I am getting married in 2 months and this is seriously not good (I am only 26!!!)
Needless to say I am struggling with work through shear fatigue and anxiety problems.
As soon as I lay down I can feel my throat getting blocked by mucus and I can barely breathe through my nose properly. I swear I have got a form of sleep apnoea from this or something though my doctor won’t send me for checks till after the operation.
Is there anything at all that can help sleep?
Night time decongestants help a little though can only take for 3 days every now and then.
I have cut out milk, coffee, sleep aids (I have terrible anxiety so needed, but makes my congestion worse!) and chocolate.
