yes and they never keep me down. Remember I get ptsd .remember u had to help me through it last june and july. Every time they keep me over night and I remember to much. also when I get sinus inection my knees swell up. that always happen. what else can I get for this headache not really pressure feels like white light pain.

Have you ever tried capsaicin cream?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

yes no help. also biofreeze as well

Wish I had some other suggestion, BBSB but except for a prescription for pain medication from you doctor I just am out of thoughts
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

no comment about the ptsd and the knees swelling up .same time as the sinus inection.

Sorry but I thought we were focused just on your sinuses. I really don't see any connection between the knee swelling and a sinus infection unless somehow you retain water with that. And you just referred to the PTSD almost in passing there--was there something more about that?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

no just scared o surgery... give me your box your box..... I know you are tired.

I understand about the surgery but talk about it with your doctor BBSB. I think you'll do fine even if you have to have it.. Love you

Hey chipper look at the question s I posted early.

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I do have appointment oct 3, at 2:00 to see my my ent have you heard of that insurance. also i went to hospital I got my results back from ct scan.

The insurance is a good one--what did the ct show?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

ok here is what the paper says.can explain in layman's terms.

1.moderate disease left frontal sinus. partial opacification bilateral ethmoids, mild mucosal thickening peripheryof the right maxillary sinus.

occluded right omu. nasal antral window on the left which is patent. moderate partial opacification of the left maxillary sinus.nasal septurn midline. Sphenoid sinus has cyst small. 3x3 mm.

no mention of the polyps?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

sorry i didn't put that in there it did say there was polyps on the left and right side. when i did asked the radilogist he really couldn't tell how bad. but i can see them in the can u translate the other.

The occuded omu means there's no way for that sinus to drain. You seem to have fluid and infection in several of your sinuses
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

ok but now it's draining blood and infection isn't that good. well I will let you go. My face hurts really bad.

The draining is good, yes. Say hi to BillyBob
