I've had this problem for three years straight. I have some or all symptoms on a daily basis. I've had a CT scan of sinus and probe done too - all clear. Also been tested for autoimmune conditions including Sjorgrens - all clear. I'm a 31 year old female, non-smoker, non-drinker.
- burning in both eyes, mostly the left
- a burning feeling in left nostril, sinus area. feels cold when breathing in.
- occasional popping in my sinuses which seems to relieve the burning/cold feeling.
- occasional tingling on left brow bone
- occasional headache in left temple
- occasional popping in ears
Sleep relieves these symptoms. But they will start up again anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours after I wake up. Seems to be worse when sitting still at computer or driving. I was injured by a chiropractor back around the time this all started. I went to 7 chiropractors since until I found one a few weeks ago actually found my head was on crooked. He did some crazy adjustment to me and my neck and achy/stiff back has been healed ever since.
Also, not sure if this is related but my ears have popped when I swallow every time for as long as I can remember.
I worked in a 100+ year old building 4 years ago up until 9 months ago. I sat under a vent that blew on my left side of my head all day every day. I first experienced the popping while sitting at my desk. That was the first symptom. Incidentally, someone else sat at my desk one day and by the end of the day they had developed a rash all over the left side of their face and neck. We then suspected mold problems so moved out of the building. However, my symptoms haven't stopped.
Could this possibly be a mold infection that has latched onto the walls of my sinuses? I don't suspect allergies since this is a issue that only effects the left side of my face.
Neti pot will temporarily relieve the burning in my eyes and nose. Eye drops help with the burn too.
This is a miserable chronic thing to live with.
