For the past year, i have been having trouble with my sleep and wake up every morning feeling exhausted and feel very tired throughout the day.
There seems to be an issue with my sinus as i always feel pressure 24/7,almost like a throbbing sensation and when i lye down, my sinus blocks up. So if i were to lye on my left side, my left sinus would block up and if i lye on my right, my right sinus is blocked.
My doctor told me this was caused by allergies, although i have been taking allergy pills, weekly allergy shots, corticosteroids, and tried everything else with zero relief.
I also notice that the back of my neck is always sore and i have constant headaches. When i blow my nose, nothing ever comes out.
Anyone have any advice ? I am so desperate for a good night sleep.
HI matt ca
If you are only going to a regular family or personal Doctor, often they are not
in a position to diagnose serious or complex sinus issues, such as you describe.
If your regular Dr. did not suggest you seek a Eye,Ear,Nose,Throat specialist,
he should have, and if not yet done so, you really ought to find a good one
in your area or eearest you.
Of crucial significance for you are the constant headaches, back of your
neck being sore, and dry mucus, which needs testing asap....with a
qualified specialist as cited above. Scans and verious tests can usually
give specialst clue as to problem and correct diagnoses and treatments.
Don't ignore your symptoms, they will not just go away, and you may
be using a lot of inaction time, trying to decide what to do or not do.
Go get tested asap....better to know or find out causes of symptoms
then guess or condition worsens to somethning else. So do take heed,
and good luck....health is too precious to forestal or avoid action needed.
I don't have any advice, but I am in a similar situation. Hoping someone else comments.... I too have sinus issues, and actually had surgery this past May. Still experiencing interrupted sleep and neck aches.
Keep an eye at your diet Allow at least three hours after you eat before bedtime: digestion slows down at night, and a full stomach may interrupt sleep. Varying your sleeping times by more than an hour can severely disrupt your sleep quality by breaking your circadian rhythm, and advancing the sleep phase.
