I know a lot of people with ME seem to have sinusitis issues. However I get a symptom with my sinuses and that general area which I have had repeatedly for some years. It feels to be part of a new virus each time - general soreness in the nasal area, which then can become painful. I usually treat it with a neti pot with a couple of drops of Oil of Oregano, and also take some O of O orally as it's the only thing that seems to help with these attacks. Any other suggestions for treatment and support gratefully received - am guessing it's more an inflammation issue than a mucus one. I had some respite in 2016 and part of 2017, and I was doing pretty well with stamina, until I believed that the Endocrinologists scuppered me by disapproving of my T3 use, and getting me to add in T4. My health declined last year as a result, and even though I am now back on T3 only, I am am still struggling. I have got my GP to do immunoglobulin tests in the past and they show low IgA (below range) and low IgG (sometimes just in range and sometimes below). I am beginning to feel mentally low with it, and feel that I won't easily get back to the point I was at and I feel my life closing in on me. In fact, I have been able to be a member of a dance/theatre group on and off for over 10 years, (with breaks of a year or so when I had a particularly bad dip), but I am now afraid that I won't be able to participate again. People in the group have disabilities but they are not ME ones, but I do have adjustments so I can come in later as I can't dance or move for a couple of hours now. I am also one of the oldest ones now in the group which doesn't help! I have had a really difficult 18 months with 3 eye operations - 2 of them emergency ones (retinal detachment) and I feel that has added to my decline at a time when my thyroid medication was not optimal. Also I have very few supportive friends (and no relatives nearby), and a husband who helps practically but does not support emotionally. One of the few friends I have who lives very near me is about to move the other end of the country. Her husband was incredibly kind when I had one of my eye emergencies and took me to hospital and stayed with me for 12 hours (my husband hates/afraid of hospitals and does not drive). So I guess this is also part of the mix. Sorry this is a bit of a muddle of a post and I don't usually post about emotional stuff, but I guess I am trying to find my way through this and I am conscious that the physical stuff is weighing me down. I am hoping that I will pick up with the summer coming as I usually do and that will lift my spirits too.
