welcome to hcm,
your symptoms are classical for DNS..getting it operated may or may not help u..because of this u ll have sinusitis and also on long term will lead to nasal polyps..best u can do is :
steam inhalation atleast 5-6 times a day
take nasovion spray for one week
also take tablet ebastin-DC once in the night
get your AEC levels checked and rule out allergic cause..
if u have allergy start taking duanase nasal spray in the night for a month..
if still the symptoms persists its better u give a try at surgery..take care

Im on birth control, and had a normal period last month March 26th. I ended up having to go out of town the very next day, While out of town I had a very bad sinus infection resulting in a 10 day round of Augmentin, my last dose was on April 14th or 15th.. I arrived home on April 16th and have been sexually active ever since. I was due to start my placebo pills the week of April 20th. I never got it. Now I have low back pain, occasional heart burn, and tummy pressures. Is it possible that I ovulated late and possible became pregnant? Ive also had 3 neg dollar store tests.
