4) oral antihistamines.

Anxiety can be treated by the following measures by yourself;

Because I've this feeling like I can breath but it hurts and it swollen , can it be an effect from sinues?
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I've had a "runny nose" but it goes down my throat
Health Professional: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor (MD) replied 11 months ago

Post nasal drip is runny nose. It is usually secondary to sinusitis.

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Do you know when sinues will go away I had that thing for three weeks ( been on antibiotics and now spray) but they are still there like this nasal thing is stuck in there , are there any home things to help it get better and is there any risk it might be back in future
Health Professional: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor (MD) replied 11 months ago

It is rare for it to recur.

Following is the treatment protocol for sinusitis;

1) Nasal steroid; decrease inflammation and open up obstruction.

2) Oral decongestants such as pseudoephedrine are often helpful.

3) Topical decongestant for short duration.

4) Antihistamines; use only if allergic.

5) Steam vaporizer

6) Eucalyptus oil may help

7) Nasal saline irrigation

8) Vitamin C

9) Antibiotics

For treating it naturally; steam inhalation, nasal saline water (salt water) irrigation (can be done by Neti-pot), Vitamin C, Eucalyptus oil inhalation can be done. Following can increase the body immunity so help in overcoming the sinus infection;

1) Omega 3; Fish oil capsule and flaxseed oil capsule.

2) Ginkgo Biloba

3) Zinc 30 mg.

You may also be looked for GERD, which has increasingly been implicated in causing or exacerbating chronic sinusitis.

Consulting an ENT (ear, nose throat) specialist would be prudent.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
