    sinus issues

    im having pain all around my eyes and in my cheeks and nose. i have pain and tingling around the sides of my head to the back. im pretty certain this is sinus infection as i have wrestled with those for years. but this time i am not having any drainage. i can tell something is blocked. my sinuses feel extremely dry. sometimes i wake up in the middle of the night to some drainage that is clearish.

    i am having one really weird symptom that is driving me nuts. i have experiencing a twitching sensation in my nose/sinuses. i have to scrunch my nose up like a bunny to not think about it. i also feel a little numbness and twinges that feel like numbness is going to strike in my face in the sinus cavity.

    i am curious if anyone else has experienced this and what the course of action was. i cannot get in to see my ear, nose and throat specialist until the first week of january! in the meantime im taking a decongestant but in the meantime... i am assuming i should go to my general doctor and request a ct scan of my sinuses... but this twitching sensation is reallly weird. i am also three weeks into paxil withdrawal and think that may have some correlation, but there is a definite sinus infection issue as well.

    just looking to see if anyone has had this "twitch" in their nose before. it's weird and i cannot find anything online about it. of course the pessimist in me thinks i have a brain tumor or something of that nature. my last ct scan was of my brain in late august and i did not have any issues. i am a smoker so i have been trying not to smoke during this time so as not to irritate my sinuses moreso.

    a lot going on in that head and face of mine. if you have experienced similar sensations i would like to hear more!

    also - any recommendations for alternative therapies for sinus infections? does anything like chiropractic or acupuncture help sinus issues? herbal treatments or therapies?

    You will be OK. I use to hell I still do get a twitch now and then. Growing up my mom would rub her nose back and forth to get it to stop. I nasal irrigate and the twitching stops immediately. I guess the allergens in your nose makes this happen sometimes. Use sea salt and baking soda with a product for irrigating. I have been doing the nasal thing since May 03 and no allergy Meds!
