[QUOTE=cicka]What were the symptoms of people that had problems with their maxillaries, do you remember, please?[/QUOTE]

James123 had a probable sinus infection in his maxillaries. The upside down sinus flooding resulted in significant improvements, but, as far as I know, has not taken away his maxillary infection.

[QUOTE]So if irrigation doesn't work, antibiotics won't work (since the sinus is a cavity and, well, you know...) what could be our help?[/QUOTE]

The wall between the nasal passage and the Maxillary sinus is very thin. There are out-patient procedures to place a small tube through the maxillary wall, and then flush out the sinus with salt water. But..... I don't think that just salt water will kill a maxillary sinus infection.

If it were me, I would ask the surgeon to first flood my maxillary sinus with diluted peroxide, baking soda and kosher salt, or another antibiotic liquid, and let it stay in there for ten minutes, flush out completely with salt water, and repeat the process several times. I would then go on a course of antibiotics to improve the odds of success.

I would also want to repeat this maxillary sinus flush, once every week or two weeks, for a couple of months, and then once a month for a few months, to protect the injured maxillary sinuses from reinfecting, until they heal.

That is what I would try, but I have no idea of how successful it would be, since I have never heard of anyone doing it. I am just a fellow ex-sinus sufferer, and not a medical expert, so take my suggestions with a grain of salt.

Getting rid of the infection is just one step. The other step is solving the allergy problem that causes the infections in the first place, through allergy shots, diet changes, lifestyle and environment changes, prescription sinus sprays or pills, and acupuncture.

[QUOTE]I guess that would explain the scary dark circles under my eyes, if you're saying they stretch from the eye socket...[/QUOTE]

James123 had dark circles and a bunch of other problems that were relieved by doing "upside down sinus floodings".

[QUOTE]I used to also use a corticosteroid. It helped with the congestion, but it gave me daily headaches. It can also cause fungal infection. I wouldn't touch it again.[/QUOTE]

Sorry to hear about the headaches from the corticosteroid.

[QUOTE]Nasal Cromolyn helps with the headaches and dizziness, but irrtitates my throat. Seems like I just can't win. : ( [/QUOTE]

Sinus disease is a very frustrating and almost disabling problem.

[QUOTE]Did you also have a lot of trouble with post nasal drip and headaches before your treatment?

Talk soon :wave:[/QUOTE]

When I would get a sinus infection, my sinuses would swell up worse, each day, until they closed totally and became more painful. The discharge would be discolored and thick. The longer I let it go, the worse it got. I would feel like I had the flu. I didn't have a headache but the post nasal drip was nasty.

I once made the mistake of taking extra corticosteroid sprays, to cover up the infection. It worked for a while, but it screwed up my system, and made me much more sensitive to chemicals, allergens and irritants.

If you get a chance, read about James123's experiences trying to treat his maxillary problems. Some of my posts, back then, had errors in them, as I have learned a lot since first posting about the "upside down sinus flooding" on Healthboards.
