Brief Answer:
As below:

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for your query.

1. A plain CT PNS (Para Nasal Sinuses) is the gold standard imaging for sinusitis that will settle the diagnosis of Chronic Rhino-Sinusitis (CRS).

2. Allergic rhinitis can be controlled with newer generation anti-allergic medication, nasal steroid sprays and regular steam inhalation.

3. The pressure in the head and face is consistent with CRS.

4. CRS tends to lead to a PND (Post Nasal Drip), which in turn aggravates acidity. This may be one of the reasons for the stretching feeling in the stomach. Get a USG (Ultrasound) of the Abdomen done.

If you have any further questions, I will be available to answer them.

Hi had a bilateral fezz done last April for chronic sinusitis, have had nine antibiotics since as they can t clear infection. Now told I need another operation to try and sort out this infection. Over the last month have noticed one side of my throat is sore on swallowing and I have a fluid filled pouch on my collar bone. I suffer from rheumatoid arthritis which is active at the moment and wonder if this fluid is connected to that or to the sinus infection. Many thanks

Hi it has been 2 weeks since my Fess surgery on my sinuses. I am now developing a cough that is similar to what I was experiencing when I had chronic sinusitis. It is worse in the morning and night and I am coughing up infected-looking mucus. Could I have another sinus infection or is this a normal post- op symptom? There is no more blood at this stage and I am irrigating 3x a day.
