At the same time, I've found that some of the same allergens that caused my sinuses to swell also caused higher blood pressure.
I went to many different ENTs, and had CT scans, and tests, and after decades of recurrent sinus infection misery I finally completely stopped my sinus infection nightmare (sinusitis), around 2002, and lowered my blood pressure by avoiding as many allergens and irritants as possible; and by healing the wounds within my sinuses and nasal passages (caused by previous infections
), so that they would no longer be prone to infect.
If you'd care to take a look, I posted a thread, in the Sinus Problems
subject, explaining what I did entitled: Infrequent Sinus Flooding with Peroxide & Baking Soda halted my infection nightmare
