So, the ride back home was a white knuckle experience
Glad you are home safe and sound.
Was also happy to find out I wasn't the only one with the weird sinus stuff happening either, but that seemed to be a phase and is now non-
I cannot remember you posting anything about this - did you have sinus congestion or sinus pain?
Get some rest today - sounds like you can use a little "down time".
Well, I get sinus "issues" about once a year like clockwork then very little to nothing the rest of the year, so was hesitant to lay it all at the feet of stenting until it cleared up/got better/stayed the same. It's not even an issue now. Now I say "sinus" for lack of not knowing exactly what it was, but it was not onerous or debilitating or restricting. I know my tinnitus has gone down considerably from where it was at my highest INR. Same ear for both the tinnitus and the "sinus" stuff as I call it. He said my MRI showed my sinuses as looking fine.
Now the particular symptom, felt almost like fluid in the ear and/or pressure, nearly exactly what you would get on an airplane when changing altitude, but ONLY on that right ear where my tinnitus is. Positional changes or head tilting certain directions would block off the sound in that ear, so of course I'm thinking fluid/sinus type stuff. Yawning would sometimes help, or tilting head or pulling ear lob out but it would come back at intermittent times. Now if it still continued to this day I would be concerned, but my sense is that things are adjusting up there in the old melon to a new flow of things and since blood carries fluid and such, let's just wait and see how it levels out.
My ears still adjusted to elevation changes quite normally on the way up there through the mountains, just like on the way home, so that hasn't changed, which is good!
Reason I put sinus in " " marks, is that I tried all the over the counter stuff I had on hand, sprays and all that, and it did little or nothing to help the blockage. Plus I didn't feel stuffy at all, and no sinus pressure or sensitivity on the eye socket on my right side where it always hits. Interesting tho that everything focuses on that right side, sinus, tinnitus, ear-sound-blockage. What to make of all of it?
