Hi,

This is typical of frontal sinusitis, get a x-ray of paranasal sinuses done. Till then take pain killers like Ibuprofen/diclofenac, do steam inhalation and drink plenty of warm water.

thank you for your help. its been worrying me for a while i thought it could be a brain tumor or something really serious.

thank you

Hi,

If you are very apprehensive about your condition better get a MRI of the brain done, so you can have a peace of mind, rather than dying of doubts everyday.

i believe it is nothing more than sinusitis. steam inhalation with cap. Karvol in it will loosen the sticky matter and make the nasal passage patent.
cure your cold with medicines like maha lakshami vilas ras swarn yukat & godanti bhasam. To be taken with hot water. avoid exposure to cold or taking of cold things.
Tea made from ginger and tulsi also gives some relief.
consumption of hot milk with turmeric and honey in it offers long time immunity from cold.

i believe you are not a medical professional. Let your GP decide on the issue. Feel better and relaxed. One should not always keep on thinking of diseases, think of health and feel the difference.
