Hi. I am experiencing pressure and tensions in my forehead, in my cheers and a little in my jaw area, as well as what feels like deeper in my head - almost like in my brain. My nose is not congested or blocked. I have been experiencing this for a while - maybe fore a year or so. I have seen a GP and he, suspecting sinus inflamation, prescribed Nasonex and requested a CT scan on my sinuses. The scan showed inflammation in my sinuses and a polyp in the left side. He has recommended I continue to use the Nasonex. I am confused since I would imagine that the spray would help with de-congesting and swelling in the nose... and i do not have any problems breathing or any discharge. The tensions seem to be both on the surface and deep inside. Does anybody have a clue as to what this may be or have any similar experience / suggestions. Thank you
