I have suffered from terrible sinus problems for years.
It isn't the normal runny nose, watery eyes allergy thing. This is accute sinusitis and it causes very painful sinus headaches. The pressure is unbelievable and nothing eases the pain. Motrin and sinus pills just dull it a little, but it comes back. My headaches would last for days.

Mine start when the barometric pressure starts to drop. As the pressure goes lower, my headaches get worse. The doctors have tried Allegra, Claratin, Flonaise, but those are allergy medicines and I kept trying to tell them, it isn't an allergy. (Do they listen...noooooo.) They told me to avoid dairy, wheat, chocolate, well, just about everything I like. It didn't work because IT ISN'T AN ALLERGY.

Today I woke up with a sinus headache. I looked at the barometer..yup, pressure is falling...oh great. Here we go again.

After 2 doses of Tylenol sinus, I was able to go grocery shopping. My supermarket has a homeopathic section that I wander through when I am there. I saw a homeopathic sinus remedy (phosphorus 6X). It was $3.99. I figure it's cheaper than Tylenol sinus and what can it hurt?
Within 10 minutes I felt my sinus's open. Within an hour they were draining.
It's been 4 hours now and no pain, no pressure, just a slightly tender left eyeball (but that is where the pressure was today. It's normal for me)
The barometric pressure hasn't changed at all.
I just thought I'd let you know.
Also, they had a migrain remedy. The way I see it, it can't hurt.
