    New Sinus Symptoms - Looking for advice

    Hello everyone!

    I've been (like many others on this board) plagued with sinus congestion/issues for quite a few years now. I generally have a heavy head, popping ears with tinnitus and pressure around my face every day of the year to varying degrees. In the winter I usually get full blown sinus infections multiple times until the spring comes along.

    At the start of the winter last year I got a nasty cold/flu bug which wiped me out for a few days, and to my surprise my sinuses weren't that bad directly after the illness.

    However about 3 weeks later I started developing eye symptoms (felt like I had something in my left eye, then an aching feeling behind it that gradually got worse - started to get some weird vision issues kind of like my left eye was looking a different way to my right).

    My left ear started to block up and then it dawned on me that it could potentially be another sinus infection. When I started getting pressure and pain between my eyes and across the bridge of my nose I thought I should at least get it checked out. I've been to my optician & seen an eye specialist at the hospital who both confirmed that there is nothing wrong with my eye itself so I saw my doctor who put me on antibiotics.

    Symptoms started to clear - antibiotics ran out and a week later it started happening again. Repeat this another 3 times over the next few months and I'm still no better. Currently waiting until the middle of February for a ENT appointment.

    I tried stopping smoking (I know, terrible for sinuses) however it seems to make my congestion 10x worse.

    I've been using steam inhalation & a sinus rinse which seem to have helped a little - anti histamines just seem to dry me out so have avoided those thus far.

    Does anyone else have any similar symptoms this year? Any advice on how to get myself through to February? Being ill all the time is making me miserable, I can't focus on my work properly and feel like I'm on another planet 99% of the time.
