No xrays have been done I dont have any medical cond.Doc thought I had a sinus infection,but I didnt see any help from antibiotics.
Doctor: Dr. B., Doctor replied 8 years ago
Dear Rotator,

I am sorry to know about your symptoms,

Based on what you mentioned,I will advise that you ask your physician to do sinus xray to confirm the presence of infection in sinuses,if confirmed,then ask him to prescribe broad spectrum antibiotics like augmentin which may help take care of resistant infection.
Also ask the physician to do rast test as this may help tell us possible allergens respnsible for your symptoms,as there is a possibility that your symptoms could be due to allergic pathology.
Also discuss with your physician about prescribing you intranasal corticosteroids which will help subside your symptoms.

Thanks

I have alot of problems with sneezing attacks,could that be causing sinus problems?
Doctor: Dr. B., Doctor replied 8 years ago
Sneezing attacks are more commonly seen due to allergic pathology,it can be seen in sinusitis but less likely.

Thanks

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.
