I'm sorry that I can't be of help but wanted to bump your post.
Are you feeling any better now?
It could be allergies. I know when we lived in Dallas, I always seemed to have a sinus infection...Turns out it was allergies.
Jojo, we are so quick to blame everything on our MS - please take the time to call your doctor and be evaluated. If it is sinus infection a good round of antibiotics might be in order. they can treat allergies, too.
My Sinuses are horrid. I find some of my MS Medicines such as Baclofen and Percocept dry them out more. I now use them sparingly. I started using more saline and putting a little vaseline in my nose to help keep things moist. I stay away from most allergy medicines which are drying and take Mucinex which thins mucus. I also drink a lot of water or tea. I think the nerves in my head get set off more because of my MS so when my sinuses get set off it starts a whole thing ( but that is my theory not medical ).
Thanks. I think that's what it may be. The pain *****!! I am going to buy some Zyrtec/Sudafed today.
Thanks for your response. I am on antibiotics. Been on it for 5 days now. About to start an allergy med, too.
Thanks for the tips! I am still hurting. I've been told by 'transplant' neighbors that they had similar troubles when they moved to this area from where they did live all their lives. I am still on antib and will start taking an allergy med (Zyrtec) tonight along w/ Sudafed, I guess. Bought some Alavert but didn't start it and the Pharmacist I called today (to ask about interactions w/ it) said he doesn't recomment Alavert b/c it doesn't seem to work as well as Zyrtec along w/ a separate decongestant (like Sudafed). So, I will try that. I'm all out of options and this pain is on it's 11th straight day and I am tired of it! Hope you are well with your MS. I hate it, too!!
