I went to the ENT dr. today and I have to use a nasal spray for three more months.  At least I don't have to do the irrigation any more. 

It's raining gently today and much cooler. 

Katie, thanks for the web sites.  I'm old fashion.  I like to hold things or try them on before I buy them.  I did order Tuffy the indestructible dog toy which is a wonder from the internet.  But I knew about this from my friend.

Have a safe day.

I went to the doctor again for my sinus/allergy. I think if the infection was gone then maybe we could do something about the allergy part of this problem. He asked me how long this had been going on and I told him around 25 years, he smiled and said this I never really get over the infection it will it lessens for a couple days but it is really always there.

A month ago I had a shot and 10 days of another anti biotic. This time he gave me LEVOFLOXACIN 500mg. Never had it before....but I do know that I took the first one after lunch yesterday watched my soap and took a 2 and a half hour nap on the couch... That was about the first long sleep I have had for a long time.. am a little dizzy but it is only for 7 days. Then we will see.

So I feel for you.

I don't get headaches with my problem, hadn't had what I would call a pain in my head for over 20 years. But now if I lay on my left side I get a headache, it will go away for the most part if I turn over.

Well more on my saga later.....hope the ENT can help you.

I tried that medicine. My tongue swelled and blistered.  After I had the blood vessel removed on Mon. it seems like the eye pain has been more frequent.  It cold be the result of the meds they used and the eye still being slightly swollen.

I just want the eye pain to go away.

I'm glad you had some good sleep.  It's the pits when you don't get quality rest.

Take care,
