Re: Chronic Sinus problems and Mold Ė I CANíT SLEEP!
OMG!! I CAN HELP!! I had this exact same problem!
After going to hundreds of quacks, i finally got put on a med called Topamax. It doesn't take away the allergies, but it relieves the severe pressure that was causing me not to sleep for 3 freaking years. I feel your pain, seriously. Now that I'm sleeping, I just take regular allergy pills like Claritin along with it. It's not perfect, but Topamax gets me to sleep and allows me to function normally again. I'm still looking into the cause though, and I think I found it. I think you might need to check on your frontal sinuses. There's an extended frontal endocscopic sinus surgery that you might want to ask your doctor about. Most people just have the endoscopic surgery done, but the problem is...it doesn't touch the frontal sinuses which are behind the brow...and that's what caused my lack of sleeping for 3 years. What your suffering from sounds almost exactly like it.
I hope this stuff helps. Cause Topamax will get you back to functioning again, but the ultimate goal is to get back to normal and not have to take meds for the rest of your life. Topamax should help you sleep and make you feel world's better. They start you off on a small dosage and work your way into a larger one so it builds up in your body. I'm so glad I found it. The funny thing is...I didn't get it from an ENT. I went to a Neurologist and she was the one who suggested it. Once I was sleeping again, my brain was rested enough to start figuring out what the cause of all this crap was from...that's when I started to piece together the frontal sinus problem. It's like my frontal sinuses weren't draining correctly. They had to be opened up after being messed up for so long.
