Thank you! This makes sense because I do have chronic sinusitis and a ct scan confirmed it more prominent in the right side. I had no idea this pain was associated with my sinuses! Thank you!!
HealthTap member
Thanks so much for answering so quickly! I always worry that my Dr. is going to judge me as a worry-wart, but the pain has persisted so it has kept me worried-with my history! Thanks again!!

This made me feel good. Thanks! I was kind of getting scared but this explained it really well because I have eczema and I recently just had a sinus infection. Thanks.
