sinus surgery has been recommended, but the symptoms are like what he experienced when a pace maker was recommended--had had it about 7 years
Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 7 months ago

The numbness and other symptoms, besides the sinus infection, can all be from a bad pacemaker and heart rhythm problem.

He needs to be seen immediately and I suggest the ER.

This can be dangerous if let go.

The pacer needs to be checked today.

OK, let me know if you have more questions.

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.
