I have chronic sinusitis (and drainage) and suspect its link to my MS. Some time ago Lars made comments that prompted further investigation. For those interested, http://www.aaohns.org
has lots of good information.
Specifically, http://www.entnet.org/healthinfo/sinus/ ... enoid2.cfm
is very interesting with these sentences: "The sphenoid sinus is adjacent to the main nerve that is responsible for vision, the optic nerve. The main artery that goes to the brain, the carotid artery, travels along the wall of this sinus."
Does it seem like all roads are leading to the sphenoid? Optic neuritis, lesions in the brain??? And so many folks I know with MS report sinus infections, sinusitis, allergies, even one with CONSTANT throat-clearing tho she says she has no sinus problems!
A later thought: Could the statins and other anti-inflammatories actually be working on inflammation in the sinuses??
