    I'm in the same boat, infection, blood, pulsatile tinnitus,  I tried pretty much everything.  I see the ent in June.  So what is that drug supposed to do?  Did he say how long it would take to clear up?

    I've been suffering for about 2 and a half years now with an obstructed maxillary infundibulum, my symptoms are facial pressure and feeling nauseous at times. I'm due for an operation in July. I feel it affects my mind also at times because the pressure is persistently there, hopefully the op will cure it.

      I bought the mri and ct scan report results from the hospital and googled my results and a online ent doctor couldn't understand why nothing was being done to me, so I contacted my doctor and she sent me to see the ent doctor again and he put me on the waiting list last October. I've been on a few sinusitis forums and many people suffer with these symptoms and don't get the attention that is needed, very frustrating.

      I tend to agree with you the two gps I have had did not want to take sinus X-rays or ct scans,  I ended up taking tons of antibiotics because they did not want to send me get the proper tests and or make me a appointment for an ent.  It will have taken me 11 months to finally see an ent.  Because every dr thought they could fix it with drugs.
