Does sneezing relieve sinus congestion for anyone else?
I have been on antibiotics (doxycycline ..yeah not really for sinusitis but I have problems with other antibiotics) for a little over a month. I had to quit taking the doxy because I got a terrible headache on it and it really isn't killing the infection if that is what I have. I have pressure/pain in my cheeks on my brow bone and the top of my forehead. I don't really have a lot of nasal congestion, however if I can make myself sneeze TONS of clear thick mucous comes out and I can blow most of it out, however, once the urge to sneeze goes away it clears up. It relieves some of my sinus pain. I'm tryign to figure out if my facial pain is coming from my sinuses or my TMJ...it's hard to tell sometimes. Also I have had a headache for three days now it's awful. I plan on going to the dr. tomorrow. Until then ...any thoughts suggestions? I take zyrtec D daily but it does not relieve the pain in my face or my headaches.
