Will I ever feel normal again?

Posted , 4 users are following.

Just been to my GP as still having pressure and tingling sensation on the bridge of my nose and my cheek bones are also tender.

I was initially prescribed Doxycycline which I took and things seemed to get better but then symptoms came back so I have now been given Beconase steroid spray to use for 7 days, I have a follow up appointment next Friday and they will refer me to the ENT clinic for further tests.

Fingers crossed there is light at the end of the tunnel just hope this spray works soon!!!

    Hi laura48798

    I can really sympathise with you as for about a 12 month off and on I have suffered with pain/pressure on the bridge of my nose and between my eyes and frontal headaches. No blocked nose but constant post nasal drip.

    I don't know if it's a coincidence but I've been using a sinus rinse bottle for several weeks now and it has seemed to have helped.

      Hi WelshCath,

      I'm hoping the spray I've been prescribed helps as I hate this feeling I have.

      Do you ever suffer from any facial tingling?

      I get it on the left side of my face and head, the doctor said it could be something pressing on a nerve, what does she mean by that??? Totally worried me now 😪

      Hi Laura

      I was using Flixonase (nasal spray) and Loratadine (antihistamine) for months but they didn't seem to help at all. I have also used Beconase too.

      No, I've not had any facial tingling.  Just the awful pain/ pressure and very lightheaded.

      I just did a little search online and found this, which might put your mind at ease .......

      I just returned from the Dr with the same symptoms. Some minor sinus pressure, and most of all bizarre tingling...up the left side of my face. My Dr believes I have a severe sinus infection that has caused pressure on my v3 and v2 facial nerves. I'm on 2000mg of Amox for 10 days. Hopefully that will solve this. I've never experienced something like this before. The tingling comes and go. 

      So maybe you have something similar.

      WelshCath,

      That could be what I've got.

      I feel awful tonight, I've just been to the cinema with a friend which was fine but then went for a drink afterwards, I don't drink often as I don't go out due to my anxiety. So 2 glasses of wine and a very loud band has given me the most awful headache!! And just feel rotten. I'm hoping an ibruprofen and my spray will help me sleep tonight x

      Hi Laura

      Sorry to hear your feeling so unwell. I know the feeling sad

      Strange you mentioned anxiety, as I was going to ask earlier if you suffered from it.  As tingling is certainly one symptom of anxiety. 

      I've had it in the past. 

      I hope your feeling a bit better this morning x

      I've woken this morning feeling abit better still got a slight headache, it's right behind both of my ears on my head.

      Yes I do get anxiety and panic attacks, more recently than ever before. It puts me off going anywhere as I worry I'm going to have one while I'm out.

      Do you suffer from them too??

      Hi Laura

      Unfortunately I do suffer with anxiety and panic attacks sad I have done for several years now. I know exactly what you mean about the thought of having one when your out too. So embarrassing!

      Look up no more panic.

    That Beconase worked good on me. But even that was not enough. I also bougt some over the counter pseudoephedrine and that got rid of the tenderness in the nose and cheeks.
