Advice please.. I'm a 45 year old women.
I've had nose pain and earache on my right side for at least a month. My nose and sinuses are very tender and I have consistent earache, eye pain and headache on the right side. Also my right nostril gets a lot of crusting and occasional nose bleeds, which I didn't have in the past.
I saw the doctor who diagnosed rhinitis/sinusitis and prescribed nasal spray which seemed to make the pain worse. He also gave me 7 days prednisalone which I think had some effect on the pain. An X-ray showed a slight deviated septum but he's sure this wouldn't cause my problems. I had a very productive cough too but my chest X-ray was clear this time. Bloods tests for common allergens was also clear, but despite this the Dr says he's sure it's allergies! I'm really frustrated with this pain and irritation. I plan to go back to the ENT Dr. a third time.
I got my eyes checked as my vision has really deteriorated over the last year or so, I was prescribed glasses for near sightedness. I saw the dentist who couldn't find any problems.
The last year I've also had inflammation in different areas of my body, constant night sweats and tingling/shooting pain in hands and pain (not current). CRP is consistently higher than normal but no disease diagnosed to date! Does this sound connected Im concerned that I was quite well until a year ago and now I seem to always be in some kind of pain. any thoughts/advice welcomed. Thank you
