Having never even known anything about sinusitis until a few years ago, I seem to have become a fairly regular sufferer (I had my tonsils out after a lifetime of chronic tonsillitis, and now seem to get sinusitis instead!). Sometimes it can last for weeks, on and off, and I have great difficulty getting any treatment for it because doctors tend to just say I've got a cold and send me packing. It causes awful headaches, as severe as migraines, plus pain across my cheekbones, congestion and sometimes voice loss. I'm really sick of it! Does anyone have any suggestions for ways to avoid it, or things they've done to relieve sinusitis symptoms? Sudafed "sinus pressure and pain" tablets help with the headache for a couple of hours, and putting one of those freezer packs across my forehead and eyes gives a lot of relief, but that's only practical when I'm at home. I've also had some relief from a nasal spray called Avamys. Any other recommendations/advice?
