I've been dealing with severe sinus issues now for over a year straight with no relief. It consists of painful sinus pressure in my nose and all around it. Extends to my eyes and above the nose bridge. Then also I feel it in upper jaw and around teeth up there. I continually have headaches or pressure that feels similar to it, ive gone through hundreds of Excedrin pills, 2-4 a day. Took augmenting initially early on, felt a little better but then it got bad again. Took zpak 2 months after for 3 days only, felt better but immediately worse once dosage ended on day 3. Was too short of time. I've had occasional discharge in my eyes as well as constant discomfort. Had ct scan of sinus and brain, both supposedly negative. I take steroidal nasal spray and sudafed plus zyrtec. I'm really at my wit's end and need relief immediately. So could use helpful suggestions from other sinus sufferers.

Just to clarify, have been to ENT doctor who hasn't done anything except order ct scan which he said was negative. He said they have to order equipment for balloon surgery thing but its literally been 3 months now and they still don't have it. So I'm thinking to go to another ENT doctor. I'm also considering taking this old Rx of prednisone that I never took for old sinus infection. Its for 14 days, starting at 40mg for first 7 days.
You have to see a Dr to get to the bottom of this, it may be more serious than you think, then again, may not, only your r can settle that.
Have you seen an ear nose and throat dr.?
Well glad I found you Crimson25, you are the first person that has my same problem, I went to about five ENT did cat scan had three surgery s clean it out and I would be fine, in 2012 I was sent to Birmingham UAB Kinkland clinic, where he did a culture and 4th surgery , now I do a Ned med saline rince twice a day with a vile of 0.6 Budesonide, and have for the first time years not had sinus pressure, or the feeling in my upper jaw or teeth, no more headaches, no more discharge from my eyes, my Doctor was Bradford woodworth, this is all I take now, went through all kind's of med's just like you and nothing worked, soon as I stopped the problems started again, he only gave me three weeks of doxycycline HYCLATE 100mg. hope this helps you, it was sure misery for me, I think they thought I was crazy Dentist said nothing is wrong, so did the other ENT's don't give up you can find one that will help you, I thought I never would, SHEven4
