Re: Permanent sinus infection
Have you considered whether TMJ could be the cause of your sinus issues?
I went through 5 courses of antibiotics and they didn't work...last GP suggested tooth root pressing on sinuses which can cause inflammation & mucus production.
I've only just started looking into TMJ and the symptoms are so like sinus infection, and could probably be a cause f sinus infection, especially if you havenarrow sinus passageways or deviated septum trapping the mucus. Since treated my sinus infection as possible TMJ and duing jaw exercises & facial muscle massaging, the pain has decreased significantly. With decreased pain (through taking amitriptyline & co-codamol) my mucus production also eased off...which led me to believe TMJ causes severe pain along the eyebrows, cheekbones and tender spots close to jaw bone. This pain spreads up into temples and between the eyes, and I believe this causes inflammation & mucus production which can then get trapped and risk of infection.
Strangely my right eye is also becoming gunky over night..and my dodgy jaw joint is on the right side, very close to eye.
Only a theory at the moment, but would explain why antibiotics aren't clearing the mucus and pain.
