Re: Chronic sinusitis since 1993 and nasal polyps now *sigh*

Sinusitus that is chronic may suggest another condition...and if that condition is bacterial in nature, prednisone would make it worse and other symptoms in other body systems could occur. So if you first presented with sinusitis and you had an undiagnosed infection going on, prednisone could weaken the immune system which in turn could result in problems with skin, joints, bones, urinary tract, sex drive, sleep, etc. Of course, symptoms could very well present in bones, joints, etc. and the sinusitis could occur after the other symptoms as well.

I suspect something other than the sinusitis is going on that is causing these problems.
