Your symptoms (duration not specified) are suggestive of Allergic Rhinitis. Precipitating factors include exposure to house dust, pollen grains and animals (dog, cat). Skin test for allergy, eosinophil count and estimation of IgE antibodies may be useful to confirm the diagnosis. Anti-allergic drugs and avoiding exposure to the responsible factor will help

I am 38 year old female. 5 foot tall, 60 kg and relatively healthy. I have been prescribed antibiotics for sinus infection 2 months ago with not much relief have had 4 courses. In past 3 days have developed trimenigal neuralgia and was sent for CT. CT retured with polypodial mucosal thickening involving maxillary antra bilaterally including 3 cm polp in left antrum and 2 cm polyp in right antrum. Left polyp extending into and occluding the ostium antrum. There is also marked narrowing of the nasal cavity bilaterally. There is a small concha bullosa of the left middle turbinate. The post nasal space is clear . I am off to GP this afternoon and am worried and just wanted to know could this be the reason for TN? Thanks
