Am posting this question because I'm beginning to realise that since starting myco in jan 2014 I've had an even more constant tendency than usual to sinus stuffiness, runny nose and post nasal drip (down the throat)....But I haven't had more than one session of heavy duty feverish blocked sinuses & headache. So, I'm wondering: has anyone here on forum noticed daily myco resulting in increased sinus symptoms?
all my 61 year old life I've had chronic sinus probs. Sinusitis is is one of the conditions my rheumatologist has kept listed in that top section of the clinic reports titled 'diagnosis' (there are several other conditions listed there inc SLE).
Of course, as my lupus is infant onset, this sinus trouble could well be a key secondary to my version of lupus...I do know my rheumatologist is particularly concerned re everything oral about me and seems to include the sinuses, upper GI & upper respiratory tract in this pkg of concern. Some here may remember that my sinusitis flared badly along with the long term upper jawbone osteomyelitis & a triple + nasal passage staph infection only 3 or so months after my lupus rediagnosis when my first systemic lupus treatment finally began with hydroxy in 2011....this sinusitis etc flare came on immediately after getting a flu jab
That was the beginning of multiple clinic investigations & long term high dose antibiotic treatment (maxillo facial + ENT etc) during which ENT got me doing daily neilmed sinus rinses (if you don't know this stuff already check it out - Amazon does it....it has helped me a lot ever since. I only use it daily when extra poorly, otherwise just weekly. no doubt everyone knows that OTC sinus sprays are only for vvvv short term usage as frequent usage can cause the symptoms they're meant to cure). I also do the dietary & lifestyle management routines recommended for chronic sinus probs. So, I'm kind of 'sinus aware', and doing my best to minimise this stuff
