    Question Painless sinus infection?

    I have been sick for 2 weeks now, but I think it's turning into a sinus infection. I feel fine and have for days now except I am so blocked up and the amount of green snot I can blow within the hour is ridiculous. My ears feel like they need to pop too. But I have no pain and everything else seems to be fine. I have never had a sinus infection before so don't know what to look for. I have a GP app on Monday because it's driving me crazy. Does this sound like a sinus infection? I've never been sick with a cold for this long.

    Sounds like it could be hun. I find I usually get one after a cold or flu. I get incredibly stuffy and no matter how much I blow my nose, it just doesn't empty, haha. And it's thick green gross snot. I also get terrible headaches, and a sore forehead and just under my eyes too. You can get nasal spray from your chemist which I find provides enormous relief, but I need antibiotics to actually clear the infection. Hope you feel better soon Xo

    Have you got any Fess nasal spray? I find that helps to clear things out so I don't get an infection.

    Yes i do, but it doesn't seem to work very well. I also have a nasal decongestant, it works wonders!

    Tasha, instead of Fess try Sinoclear. It's a rinse not a spray so I think you might find it more effective. Hope you're starting to feel better

    Oh this post is old! It was a sinus infection and I ended up getting AB's to clear it up
