I'm not sure if this has been brought up yet or not...

For years, I suffered from bad sinus problems, including migraines and bad sinus headaches...usually at night. And if I had an alcoholic beverage with dinner, it only made matters worse. Then I discovered that if I drank lots of water from about dinner time on, the sinus problems and headaches became a thing of the past. Sure, I may have to get up in the middle of the night once or twice to get rid of some of that "water", but it sure beats the alternative.

So, anyway, if you haven't already given that a try, I highly recommend it...and no, I don't own stock in a water company; ok, well, maybe I do somewhere in my mutual funds.

It's amazing how many people don't drink enough water. I try to get 4 liters a day, but sometimes I just can't drink that much.

Rhinoplasty sounds much better than scraping!But the new balloon procedure cuts healing time by 75%.

ya the healing time of my rhinoplasty was quite a while. especially as other things had been done at the same time. but i wasn't doing it for the breathing thing, i had other reasons. the breathing was just a bonus :)

I used to bring a gallon of water with me to work and it would be empty by the end of my day.

I have heard that if you don't have to 'p', you are not drinking enough water.

Me too. And I can actually say its pretty true for me. And Ive found that constipation is the final confirmation of the neglect to rehydrate. :shock:

Do you have problems falling asleep, staying asleep, and/or going back to sleep? If not, then I would strongly recommend you to do a sleep study as well. For me, I didnt have the stiff neck. But I did get very tired around 2pm or so. And i would occasionally wake up gagging and coughing. I had a sleep study done and was diagnosed with Severe Obstructive Sleep Apnea. This is a life-threatening condition. So Im really glad i was diagnosed and given appropriate treatment.

Btw, great to hear youre on Veramyst. Its a wonderful spray. I was on Flonase and made the switch to Veramyst. I hated that dead flower smell from Flonase and the other sprays.

Oh yeah. It usually takes me a while to fall asleep unless I'm really tired or me and the misses have spent some energy :naughty:. If I wake up at night I can usually get right back to sleep though. It's just the initial "falling asleep" that takes me as little as 20 minutes to an hour to fall asleep. Hasn't been bad lately though. I can fall asleep very easily at my desk about oh... 2:00 or so :D.

Veramyst is awesome. I've used Nasonex and Flonase and hated both. Flonase does have that dead lilacs smell/taste to it. I switched because I wasn't noticing any help with the Flonase or Nasonex anyway. I started getting allergy treatment to see if it would help with what my doc deems "eustachian tube dysfunction". He thinks my eustachian tube isn't open well enough or draining well enough. My ears almost always feels like there's pressure behind them. Kinda like when you drive thru higher elevation and your ears "pop". Sometimes they ache. It's not TMJ. I've had that checked. ...I went off on a bit of a tangent there. Sorry.

Before your doctor refers you out to the sleep specialist, he/she may have to rule out a few things such as insomnia, restless legs syndrome, etc. unless your doc decides not to deal with it and just send you straight to the specialist.

Bit of Veramyst trivia: Did you know that it's the only nasal spray currently out there that has significant clinical data to show that it also works to significantly relieve eye symptoms due to seasonal allergic rhinitis (itchy, watery eyes)? :D
