    I have a Cyst in my Sinus cavity.. Questions

    I went to a specialist after experiencing pain throughout my face when flying, related to regulating changing pressure. This happened a few times and was quite painful. So, my catscan revealed a mucus-filled cyst in my sinuses. The specialist said to come back in 6 months to see if the cyst has grown. He also recommended taking sudafed before flying to clear up my sinuses. This has worked perfectly. I did go back and the cyst had not grown.

    However, I have noticed problems while attempting to snorkel and diving down under water. The pressure just becomes excruciating! I would like to scuba dive and additionally not have to worry about pressure problems in the future. The specialist has stated I can get the cyst removed by essentially poking it and it will then drain away. Has anyone gone through this procedure? What was your experience with it? tks

    My mom had a huge mucusy growth in her sinus cavity too, they gave her tons of antibiotics to clear it up, no surgery.
    Though, I do know people who had a type of surgery where they like sucked out the mucus with a tube they insert in your nose.

    I have sinus pressure problems and I don't think I have a mucus filled cavity.

    I think my sinuses are narrow hence problems with getting mold spores stuck in there. They wanted to do surgery but I said, "no thanks".

    I tried wearing hearing aids. And it felt like I had just stuck my fingers in my ears and held my nose. Pressure. Too much. Got a terrible migraine headache everytime I put them in. Returned the hearing aids. She wasn't happy.

    Thanks for the replies! Interesting about the antibiotics.... I'd like to know how painful the procedure actually is to have a stick rammed up your nose. It just freaks me out, because I keep thinking about how the Egyptians cleaned out the brains of the dead before mummifying them. For those unfamiliar, they stuck a hook up the nose and used it to pull the brains out. eh

    Haha, well, you're asleep during the procedure, then on pain meds when you wake up, so you don't feel much.
