Things Getting Worse

I have struggled with sinus issues for more than a decade, and probably longer than that where I didn't realize my issues.

Lately, things seem to be getting worse, despite my efforts. A few years ago I had 2 sinus procedures (septoplasty, turbinate reduction, etc.), been on allergy shots at different times, tried all the antihistamines, nasal sprays etc. I took out all carpet in my home, got a super nice air filter for the bedroom, covers for the mattress/pillows and did work in the crawlspace to reduce moisture.

Neti pot seems to make me feel worse the day after, like I am getting a sinus infection.

This has been the worst year yet...I don't know where to turn right now. Some friends are telling me to try a gluten free diet, and on these boards I just read about some sort of peroxide rinse to try. I am thinking about quitting allergy shots becaues they definitely have not helped and maybe are making things worse.

Any suggestions would be welcome as it is severely impacting quality of life.
