SALLY'S TERRIBLE SINUS PROBLEM


Posted by June in Toronto (June Floyd,June in Toronto), Feb 09,2002,16:53   Archive
Sally, did you have this problem before you started with botox injections? If you did, then perhaps the botox is increasing the swelling and making it worse. If you did not have sinus problems before beb, you might consider that the injections are causing swelling. Just a thought, as perhaps you saw my posts about getting sinus problems AFTER my last 3 sets of injections. So far, this time around (last Wednesday I had injections) I'm ok - used the Nasalcrom Shirley suggested.

June, it seems like I've always had sinus problems .... dating way back to when I was a kid .... but it's getting worse. I haven't tried Nasalcrom yet, seems like there was some reason not to. Perhaps it was not going to be compatible with all the other junk I have to take.

Thanks!

am very newly diagnosed with BEB and am not taking
Botox yet. am experiencing severe sinus trouble
now that seems linked to BEB symptoms. don't know
other people with BEB yet and wondering if others
experience sinus and even speech difficulties when
BEB symptoms are most intense.

have been suffering with vision troubles for a
couple of years. was overjoyed to hear about the
Botox treatment and to find this bulletin board!

We've discussed which comes first the chicken or the egg when it comes to chronic & acute sinusitis and BEB. I'm like Sally I've had sinsus problems since childhood, but when I have an acute flare-up (like now). My BEB is worse this week and I seem to have yet another sinus infection. I haven't had B0T0X since Oct. 4th. The heat in winter really aggravates my sinus problem and I'm using humidifiers. I'm taking a bunch of "stuff" which is suppose to build my immune system and kill every parasite and germ in my body. You'll be the first to know here on the BB if all this money I'm forking out is helping me or just the people who sell the "stuff". I feel like a lab rat I've tried so many things that haven't worked, but I'm still going to stay on all this "stuff" for awhile longer and pray for results.

Mike,
Did you go to Orono in the early 80's? Were (or are) you a Kappa Sigma?

I did go to Orono in the early 80's. Was not a
Kappa Sig though. Were we in class together?

The Mike McDade I knew was definatly a Kappa Sig. I know he still lives in Maine, but I don't know where. Anyhow, not sure if we had classes together. I studied Spanish.

A big welcome to you, Mike. This BB can really be a life saver and I was fortunate to find it not too long after my diagnosis. Of course the diagnosis was another story ... much seeking first.

My sinus problem has been around for many moons, so I can't attribute it to BEB, although some persons feel there is a connection for them.

Come often and tell us anything you'd like about yourself. Feel free to make any comments or ask questions. If something is puzzling you, don't hesitate to bring it up.

Good luck with Botox.
