Sinus kicking off again
Have you tried "Night Nurse"...it certainly knocks you out. It has an antihistamine in it too so will aid the claggy sinuses. I had a cough for 8 weeks...the tickley cough runny nose...not worth going to the quack kind of thing but bloody annoying all the same.
Thanks but way past that.
Got whacked on the bridge of the nose while playing hockey (I blame Rupert). Never had an issue until about 4 years ago.
There is one tree here that gives lots of people trouble in a hay fever way (never had that before I came). Anyway after XRay's and MRI's finally fund the nose was broken all those years ago and so there is a slight restriction of the sinus. They could operate but "it has a risk factor" so no.
When that damn pollen hits it kicks off hours of running (Clarinase & Xyzal help avoid drowning) but every evening when I lay down it dries up and expands putting pressue on the eye socket and facial nerve and even some of my remaining teeth roots.
So the Meds are all prescription and the most powerful allowed down here. Ice Packs and Politices also help. But sometimes even a bottle of Scotch won't work.
The simple answer is to implement the exit strategy and get away from that one damned type of tree. Hopefully 4 days in UK & France next week will swamp that problem with Man Flu.
