Anyone well aquainted with their sinuses???

I now know exactly where my sinuses are in my head. I've never had a problem with them enough to think about their existance until now. I guess I have to go to the doctor for a sinus infection, so I will, but I wonder of your experience with sinuses and what you do if you get an infection other than antibiotics. I saw this Neti pot thing on-line and wonder about that. It does NOT look fun. Does the infection ever go away without meds? Is my cold still contagious? I'm ready for something and am glad I realized that was my prob. I'm tired of my head and face aching including my teeth, which is weird to me....Sorry if you don't really want to hear about this stuff...but it's all I can think about lately! Hopefully I'll figure this out soon. Thanks.

I'm so sorry... I've never tried a neti pot before. I have no idea if it works or not. I don't think sinus infections are contagious, but I may be wrong. I've always gone in and gotten an antibiotic... what can I say? I'm a baby when it comes to pain... good luck!

I think if it is a sinus infection you should go get an antibitotic, my brother in law tried to let his go and the infection got way worse. However, at this minute I don't remember what happened to him exactly. I'll get back to you on that. I am not sure but can't they spread the way other infections do in the body and really do some other serious damage. Have you searched much on the internet about what happens if you don't get medication?

Hey girlie! I am so sorry you are sick. It sucks to be sick when you are pregnant and can't take anything! I'm still in shock that I had no idea you are pregnant! Please let me know if you need some help with anything!
Congrats again!

You are officially the weirdest person I know. No one would post a blog about a sinus infection on myspace. Anyways. Mom has a netti pot. I tried it and it's interesting; it works temporarily. Get some drugs.

Sinus Infections are killer! I would definitley get medicine because I have always heard that it can turn into things that are much worse if ou chance it. You probably got some meds by now and I hope you feel better soon!
