Re: 3 months of complete sinus blockage???

Some sprays after a few days can cause the sinus tissue to swell and make you feel blocked. If you aren't getting any drainage after a hot shower, you don't have much mucus in the sinus cavities. Have you tried a neti pot or sinus rinse such as Neilmed? I strongly suggest you do that and see if it helps after a few days. Ditch any other sprays you may be using. Only use a saline one as it will have no such side effects.
You may even need a round of steroids but I'd try the rinse first as it doesn;t require a prescrption and you can buy at WalMart and most other drug stores.
