    OK, are there any peeps in the house or doctors who know about this?

    I live a healthy lifestyle and don't really have health problems. Except for one thing, and it keeps coming back over and over and over again. It makes me mad at my own body.

    My sinuses just get stuffed up all the time. It doesn't matter if it's winter or summer, it just fucking happens all the damn time. This leads to sinus and ear infections sometimes, and I'm forced to take antibiotics, which is horrible for you in every way.

    I do take nasal sprays that counter allergies and inflammation there, but I still keep getting it.

    Is there any kind of final solution to this? I'm willing to take drastic measures, because I'm really fucking sick of it after 20+ years of this shit.

    Medicated nasal sprays will only put you deeper in the hole from what I understand. Try a neti pot. Maybe not "final solution" but for me, it makes sinus issues tolerable. Also, check your diet for possible allergens.

    Yeah I drink beer. I had no idea that those two things were related. I do notice that it gets a lot worse after I smoke weed. Interesting.

    I got one nostril plugged solid for the past few months

    it stays that way for a few days then clears up
    I puts my finger up there last week and blows

    it's skin-I can feel it bulging and flapping and stuff
    got a appt with the doctor next week

    fairly certain it's cancer
