Re: Starting to think my sinus problem is TMJ instead!

As far as I can tell, the lead ENT specialist is going to do a clean out at the same time as fixing my deviated septum and opening concha bullosa. And I just have to wait till they send me an appointment, and they gave me an estimate of 2-3 months...not much else I can do about it! ENT specialist don't seem to understand how badly it is affecting my life! i asked about whether he could do endoscopy to take a sample for culture, and he said he would do that when he does the surgery if he finds anything!

I'm still continuing with daily saline flooding and steroid nose drops. At least that combined with anti-inflammatory drugs is keeping my sinus from being inflamed...I haven't had any stuffiness/congestion for a few weeks now..though this morning I had a trace of blood from saline rinsing.
