I've had this on and off since Feb/o8 when I got a sinus infection after a bad cold.
Using the netti-pot to cleanse my sinuses.  Only $10. at Wallmart this week.
Read about it.  Thought I would try it.  So far, so good.  Only the first day.  Thought
I would try it every two hours for the first few days.  Will keep you posted.  Oh yes,
the nasal back drip has gone back into my chest and is congesting it and so I am
also coughing up bad tasting stuff.  Will keep you posted.  Good luck to both of you.

I had horrible allergies last week that morphed into sinus/head cold.  I got horrible smelling and tasting mucus - reminds me of tar.  I had just had my wisdom teeth removed and wondered if it was related to that.  

1. I saw my family physician and she said it was a sinus infection and prescribed me antibiotics and a steroid to boost progress.

2. I saw my oral surgeon and he said the teeth removal and sinitis *could* be related but that the prescriptions my doctor put me on should clear it up.  I'm just on day 2 of the prescriptions so can't really report any progress yet.
