Chronic Sinusitis help

Hello all , I am a 20 year old woman from NYC and I suffer from chronic sinusitis due to a deviated septum. My problems started back when I was about 12? or so. That is when I had my first sinus infection. Since than I get terrible colds a few times a year and have problems breathing. Over the last year or so my suffering has increased , about 11 months ago I began to get a terrible sore throat on one side. Went to a doctor and she told me it wasn't strep(got tested) and just a normal sore throat and to get rest. Anyway the sore throat lasted about 2 weeks and was almost unbearable. Than in June I started to get terrible headaches , and felt more stuffy than normal and another doctor told me I had chronic sinusitis , and that I had a sinus infection and told me to use a neti rinse and gave me 2 weeks worth of antibiotics. Than in August the sore throat came back on the same one side , terrible headaches on and off than the sore throat went away. Now starting a few days ago the sore throat has come back on the one side , along with terrible heads and a bit of ear pain all on the one side. Does anyone think this is another sinus infection? I feel like I'm in and out of doctors constantly the past year. I went back to the doctor last month and was told I had a cold , but this time it feels different. Please tell me there's something out there that will help me more and I hope this is just another infection. Thank you so much for your time

>>Hi you say you have a diviated septum which could be the cause of your problem! I understand they could fix the septum through surgery ! What did your Dr say ! Have you asked him before about the posibillity ?

Re: Chronic Sinusitis help

Hi,
I also have a deviated septum and am often blocked up on one side or the other.
I have had only one bad Sinus infection and was recomended (Sudafed) by an ENT specialist. He prescribed it in tabs form but some months later I found it in liquid form.
I must say of all the things I have tried I found this to be the best.
It goes without saying that if you have an infection you will require Antibiotics but for normal use this is good. Solofelix.
