Chronic sinusitis with no infection or allergy history??
Anyone's knowledge or help on this post is greatly appreciated. I'm 22 and currently diagnosed with chronic sinisitis by my local physician after he looked down my throat. I have no green or yellow mucous though my nose is staying inflamed and irritated (no polyps or deviated septum). My occipital lympnodes and also a neck lympnodes are swollen and have been since I've had this(month and a half). When I run or play a sport my ear will close up an unclose like something's in it but there's not. My nose is usually stuffy and Ill get a brief shooting pain (moderate) sometimes where my right occipital lymp node is swollen depending on how i turn my head. Has anyone ever had chronic sinusitis or swollen lymp node pain? I've seen a doc, he did a head ct scan, chest X-ray, blood work all was normal... can anyone relate or give some knowledge? It's greatly appreciated!
Chronic sinuses is very annoying and your doc may have to give you antibiotics if it doesn't clear up. Did the doc suggest trying occasional antihistamines. He can also give you a prescription for cortisone nose spray like flonase. You could get some allergy tests, could be allergic to something, like pet hair. Keep yourself from breathing in cold air also, could make it worse. Try vicks rub on your throat also and get those tests and talk more to the doc for more referrals for allergist and prescriptions if it doesn't get better soon. If you have pets, might be pet dander.Good luck
If was on antibiotics for 2 weeks, also Flonase...and hasn't really anything. I'm using a netti pod daily now to clear the nasal it's all clear mucous so I can rule out an infection..but mg nasal does feel swollen some. I also have a swollen occipital and neck lymph node the occipital shoots pain occasionally it's very discomforting. Doc said my ears are clear but my right ear closes up when doing anything active. Any suggestions on the lymp nodes or ears? I'm piling up doc bills I'm trying to stay away. Thank you!
