My sinuses make my head hurt so bad and it feels so heavy…

Customer Question
Second opinion] My sinuses...

Second opinion] My sinuses make my head hurt so bad and it feels so heavy and makes me dizzy. I have to take 60mg of loratadine a day just to get rid of the headaches. If I don't take them the mucus gets so thick in my throat that I actually lose my voice and can't quit coughing.

Doctor's Assistant: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?

Headachestd are daily I have been nausea

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

They know I have tried everything the only thing that worked was I think it was actified D or something like that.

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.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
