Chronic Sinusitis and GAD
 
I have chronic sinusitis and I have been on nasonex for years and years. I also have severe GAD (generalized anxiety disorder). I have recently talked to a doctor (not my own) who has said that these problems may be connected.

Symptoms:

-headaches
-sensitivity to lights/cloudy days
-fatigue
-anxiety
-sometimes depression
-nasal congestion
-sinus pressure
-detached; lightheaded
-unfocused

Does anyone else suffer these symptoms?

Today I tried the "neti pot" and I have to say it feels amazing. I feel focused and "real". I feel less anxious, my mind feels clear. I'm not saying this is the "medicine" I need because I've only tried it one day; but, it seems to have helped a fair bit. I did not go into it thinking that "this will cure me" but it feels SO much better.

Has anyone else tried this?
