Update

Hi all, Janet here,

I'm fine, out of hospital now and nothing sinister on the MRI.

I was suffering from a viral infection which magnified my symptoms, but they looked after me well, no complaints, I'd just forgotten how you can lose the will!, sitting in a hospital bed.

So back home now, came out yesterday and raring to go, that terror I was feeling has gone.

Thanks for your support it really helped xxxx

  • Bet you never thought you'd welcome the idea of a nasty viral infection !

    ...............silver lining & all that ! Welcome home love. Eileen xxx

  • Thanks Eileen, what the MRI did show was that I suffer from sinusitis, this I knew, but I've never really connected it with that " funny" head of mine, but maybe that is the cause, need to see the GP now and see if we can get to the bottom of it, but not this week!!!

  • OK.........so I'm becoming quite familiar with sinusitis ! I saw my lovely, new GP a month ago about constant nasal and pressure issues and she gave me saline spray, antibiotic nasal cream and a moisturiser spray. She said it could take up to three months before the problems abate and, if they don't, she'll refer me to ENT.

    The saline spray works as a disinfecting wash for the sinus area and is great for relieving the pressure & clearing the passages, but it seems short-lived. Maybe over an extended period things will improve, with regular, persistent treatment.

    I've got a burning red face accompanied by nausea & palpitations right now and only just realised it's a reaction from my steroid shot on Friday. Pity, cause my kids have booked a birthday meal for me for tomorrow evening ; just have to 'tough it out' I reckon !

    Oh well, you've escaped unscathed and the sun is shining ; I'm really happy for you Janet. Lots of love to you...............and to Jenny as always, Eileen xxx

  • I used to get sinusitis annually, but the last few years I've managed to 'nip it in the bud' with sinutabs etc. Retiring from a front facing job in the DWP probably helped too. ;)

  • Hello! Welcome home, glad you're not feeling too bad now. Hoping against hope that you continue your recovery. Sending our best from the Baronial mansion
