Re: Starting to think my sinus problem is TMJ instead!

I've flipflopped between sinus and TMJ. After CT scan ruled out sinus pathology the second time, I put my neuromuscular orthotic back in my mouth and have decided to try and give it a better go. I...

Re: Not sinus infection after all???I'm not convinced...

I'm frustrated for you. I'm no doctor.....but it seems like this ENT doesn't know what he's talking about re: sinus problems don't cause headaches and you can't get mucus in your sinuses. Did he...

Re: Avolex for sinus infection

Maybe I didn't give the neilmed bottle a long enough run. I also tried to drink organic ACV but, again, maybe didn't do it long enough.

Re: Avolex for sinus infection

I didn't know that you can't see infection on a CT scan. My ENT said that fungus has a certain pattern that shows on CT scans, and I guess I assumed the same for bacterial

Avolex for sinus infection

I was back at my ENT's office today and he decided to order another CT scan to see if anything has changed since my last one 1 year ago. That first scan, according to the radiologist, showed nothing...
