Swelling in Maxillary Sinus and Lymph Node
I stumbled upon your website last night and couldn't stop reading it. It's the best! About 2 months ago I went off of my anti-anxiety/depression med. and it seemed to throw my body into a medical mess. I have had every cold or flu that's come my way. Most recently I had a seriously bad sinus infection, I wound up in the ER because we didn't know what was wrong with me. I had sinus x-ray's and they came back normal. But the CT scan revealed that I had terrible swelling behind my eyes. The doctor prescribed Ciprofloxan and Prednisone. I took the Cipro but not the prednisone. My symptoms seem to have all gone away except the swelling of my (left) maxillary sinus area and my lymph node directly behind my left ear and it is still causing me a great deal of pain. Earache, neckache, head and face aches. Any suggestions as to what I can take to help the swelling go down naturally? I refuse to take the prednisone unless I absolutely must. I would appreciate any suggestions or helpful answers anyone would have for my problem.
