SINUS (AGAIN)/INJECTION SITES(AGAIN)/NASALCROM


Posted by June in Toronto (June Floyd,June in Toronto), Feb 07,2002,16:21   Archive
I had my botox injections yesterday and checked out the sites of the injections, wondering whether the last 3 bouts of sinus that I've had (after injections each time) could be caused by the placement of the needle and causing swelling of the nasal passages. The neurologist doesn't inject anywhere near the sinus area and said that he has known it to cause problems with sinus with meige patients who get injected lower down. I have meige but do not get injected for it as once the botox helps my eyelids it seems to help the meige.

So, preparing for my injections, I took Shirley's advise and used Nasalcrom which I managed to buy when I was in Seattle before Christmas - we can't buy the same strength of Cromolyn Sodium here. I may not know if it has helped for a few days, but hre's hoping it does.

June in Toronto who thanks Shirley for her advise. The neuro and I talked about Seattle's beautiful glass exhibits (I didn't know about that!), Peter Breughel the artist who painted "Breughel's Syndrome" which became later known as "Meige's Syndrome II" and much more.

Your welcome, June. We'll keep our fingers crossed and hope that maybe it will work. I don't really know how you are using the Nasalcrom besides taking it before your injections. The only other thing that I would recommend doing if you haven't is in addition to using the Nasalcrom a couple of hours before your injections, is to go ahead and then use it every 4 hours while awake for a few days or so after the injections. Are you having any sinus problems now?

I really hope that it makes a difference. It was just a thought.

I used the Nasalcrom twice before the injections and every 4 hours/day since - will continue for a couple more days. So far no sinus problms and am hoping it stays that way!

Well, you're giving it a good trial and doing it right so we'll hope for the best. I really hope that it takes care of the sinus problems for you. Let us know how it goes.
