Hello there! My fiance suffers from crippling headaches on the right side of his face, especially prevalent during a physical activity, whether it be mild or intense. We have tried the hot water running in the bathroom and just breathing deeply thru the nose method, pain relievers, among other methods but we just cant find something that works for him. I think it may be a sinus infection due to the fact that when he was younger he had a CT scan and it reviled he had 4 cysts in his right sinus. I dont know the details but the doctors just keep throwing pills at him without a second glance. Should we be worried? should we find a 3 or 4th opinion? is there a type of doctor that specializes in this field? if so should i just ask for a recommendation or referral? any advice will help! Thanks for your feedback it is much appreciated.View Thread
