Swimming with sphenoiditis?

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hello. I have had sinus headaches for over a month. It turned out to be sphenoiditis but the sphenoid sinuses are not 100% filled with mucus. They are about 90%. I have been told that i am able to swim in the Pool. However whenever i swim i feel severe pressure for the rest of the Day. Moreover, my headache is persistent, worse when lying down or after sleeping. Is it abnormal that i get worse headache when water gets up my sinuses? Or does my doctor not have the knowledge and he Just thinks that i should be OK? Anyways i Will probably go under surgery in 1 week or so because i have taken A TON of antibiotics and it is not cured. I am just confused that my doctor says that i should be OK in water and i suffer from the pain. Thanks
