Sore roof of mouth
I have recently had a sinus infection, the 2nd one I've had in my entire life. I got my first last year & after the doctor & antibiotics it went away. I had terrible swelling in the nose & it was very painful. This time I went back to the doctor and he gave me some kind of medicine which the pharmacy said is usually used for ears. It worked!!!! That part has been nice; however, ever since all this has been going on, & even right now, I have pain in the upper roof of my mouth.
The doctor says he doesn't see anything & the dentist said he doesn't see anything. Is this nerve damage due to the sinus infection? Has anyone else had this? I briefly looked through this board and didn't see anything about this. I have researched this on other sites, but it doesn't sound like this is always caused by a sinus infection. My doctor looks at me strange when I keep telling the gargling with warm salt water isn't working. I asked if him if I'll always just have to live with this now & I got another weird look. The doctor is a Eye ear and nose specialist and has a great reputation, so if this is something I have to live with forever now I'd greatly appreciate being told that. I can't live with this, I can't enjoy eating now. It feels like I have a sore throat but yet it's the upper roof of my mouth on fire.
I'm miserable. It hurts to eat & feels like I have a huge sore but it's not. Anyone else have this or have any suggestions. PLEASE
