I started the Medrol pack on Thursday, and Im feeling some great relief of sinus pain/pressure... Wondering if anyone else has taken this to eliminate the swelling, and if so did it last for some time?? IM REALLY HOPING THIS LASTS even just a month I'd be happy.
How long it will last really depends on what's causing your sinus pressure. If the pressure is caused by allergic inflammation, the effects of the Medrol dose pack may only last a few weeks (unless you get your allergies under control). If the inflammation is caused by something else you may get relief for much longer.
Unfortunately, sinus inflammation and pressure can be a pain to treat if the underlying cause isn't treated (or managed). Hopefully your doctor has some idea of what's causing the inflammation and you have a plan for keeping it under control with saline irrigation, steroid sprays, allergy treatment, etc.
Well I finished the pack on Sunday, and BAM Monday I was back to the same ole pain!! Yesterday was the worst. I honestly dont know what to do anymore.. I can't take this pain all the time. My CT SCAN says clear, and my face (eyes, cheek bone, and forehead) tell me another thing... I just called my health insurance and Im going to try out accupuncture.. At this point Im will to try just about anything to eliminate the pain...
