Its like my left and right sinuses are on a timer or something. First my left sinus swells up, closing off the air flow completely. Then it will let up and i'll have maybe 15 to 30 seconds of completely free airflow through both of my nostrils. For those 15 to 30 seconds...Everything is fine. Then the other side of my nose will swell up.
There is nothing to blow out, so blowing-my-nose does no good. Its the actual walls of my sinuses that are swollen.
I have suffered from allergies most of my life. Allergy shots do diddly-squat. Allergy pills dont seem to have much effect (except the ones with the decongestant).
Sudafed will clear me up for a couple hours.
I've had endoscopic sinus surgery in the past because of a sinus infection that wasnt treated due to zero medical insurance.
What I dont get...Is why is my inner nose is doing this???? There has to be a way to stop this!
If there are 15 to 30 seconds of freedom...Isnt there a way to flip-the-switch, as it were???? To turn off this randomly switching of the swollen sinuses??? Maybe put up some barricades or pillars in my sinuses to keep them from closing shut??
It gives me headaches, it clogs up my ears, I cant concentrate well, I cant breathe well, I cant sleep well.
There just has to be something I can do to stop this sinus nonsense!
