Dear Doctor, Extremely thankful for your response. I would also ask you whether normal FESS procedure is painful or is it bearable . Whether will it destroy the normal anatomy of tissues or is it just minor one . If done how many days will it take to recover . Also when all other possibilities with respect to tinnitus has been ruled just wanted to know whether sinusitis can cause tinnitus because it is sometimes going up and sometimes calm and often mild but doesn't go away. Also wanted to know whether VIT D def can cause tinnitus. Regards
