[QUOTE=darkman]Thanks for responding,

Yes I had a CT of my sinuses twice and the doctor said I had some build up in my right cavity, but nothing really out of the norm, or nothing serious. I've had the same luck with Flonase and other products, they seem to help a little at first but are non-effective after a few days or so. My eyes feel tired very easy too from all the pressure.

I have a few questions for you. Do you smoke? And if so, does it make the pain/pressure worse. It did for me so I quit smoking. When you first started having these problems, did you have any fever? Well I did. Doctor said I had sinusitis and treated me for that. Treatment helped, no more fever, but everything else never went away. Because of the pressure, do you have dark circles under your eyes and eyelids? My eyes have never been dark before until this first started. There dark above and below my eyes. They also have a hint of reddish in them since they’re a little puffy and swollen. Does your pain/pressure seem to get worse as the day goes on? Well mine does. Especially at work. I always look like I’m "under the whether" or "need to get rest". This has affected my life tremendously. I wouldn't wish this on anybody. The only thing that seems to get me some relief is regular over-the-counter allergy/sinus pills. The pressure/pain also seems to get worse if I’m around my dog for too long. One last thing, do you only feel pressure? Or do you also feel pain?[/QUOTE]

Hi... No, I don't smoke. Never had a fever either. Yours must have been from the infection. I don't get the dark circles either. Could it be from not enough sleep? I know, when this problem first started, I lost a LOT of sleep, from worry. I had no idea what this was, since I never experienced it before.
My pressure does usually get worse as the day progresses, though sometimes it's there from the beginning. I had one migraine at the start of this thing, then it was just pure pressure symptoms. Today, I did have another migraine. Not sure why, because yesterday, I had a pretty good day. You said you do not experience pain, just pressure, right? I think some of what we have is tension headache, from the stress of having such an illness. So, it's hard to separate the two sometimes. I have blood pressure probs too, so the decongestants made my bp go up at one time. I see my ENT on Thursday... curious what he will recommend next. I'm anxious to see how changing environments will work for me. I think there's a lot of allergens in my current environment.
Take care. We'll get to the bottom of this somehow. Good luck.
Keep us posted and I will to.
