If one started walking or running outdoors, that means more exposures to airborne allergens and irritants. ...Read more
I was diagnosed with ethmoid sinus disease by CT scan. I was also dx with high blood pressure. Started Bystolic (nebivolol) one week ago. Can this sinus condition?
Ethmoid Sinusitis: Hello, the CT shows that you have sinusitis which has many causes however a sinusitis directly resulting from bystolic (nebivolol) BP medication I don't think has been reported.

What medicine would help with ethmoid sinusitis and mucus in frontal sinus and sphenoid. Mri findings. Symptoms eye pain, leftside headaches.?
Can a retention cyst in the max sinus. Amuse unilateral ptopsis? Moderate thickening of several of the ethmoid cells?? What does this all mean.
Possibly: Sounds as though you've had a study to evaluate this and so clearly the doctor who ordered the study should be answering your questions. Any of us would only be guessing on this small fragment of information. Good luck! ...Read more
My MRI shows severe mucoperiosteal thickening in the right ethmoid air cell. Could this be causing severe sinus headaches?

Had an MRI done everything normal mostly except mild ethmoid air cell and bilateral maxillary sinus thickening but don't get sinus headaches explain?
Plz explain. Minimal to mild chronic appearing paranasal sinus inflammatory changes. Mildly increased ethmoid air cells. No acute sinusitis or osseous changes.
How do they clean out maxillary/frontal/ethmoid sinuses during sinus clean-out w/ septoplasty? Drill? Vacuum?
How long will sinus surgery take for ethmoid mucocele and turbinate reduction? Hour? Saline spray necessary post surgery?
Had sinus surgery 11days ago (right ethmoid, frontal, sphenoid, unciate). My rt eye has been tearing up constantly for past 5-6 days. Is this normal?
Ask your surgeon: The ethmoid sinus is next to the tear drain, so swelling could cause this. Ask your surgeon! ...Read more
Minor Musocal thickening within the left frontal sinus, the ethmoid air cells and right maxillary atrium found in MRI scan, have bad frontal headaches?
Mucosal thickening: What you are describing is completely normal with incidental finding of mucosal thickening on MRI. It is very common to see mild sinus mucosal thickening on MRI. It is not diagnostic of sinus infection or sinus obstruction. The cause of your headache is unlikely to be related to your sinuses. ...Read more
Ent recommended surgery for: posterior left ethmoid mucocele with some bone demineralization. Are sinus mucoceles generally surgically removed?
Yes: Sinus mucoceles are generally removed surgically, as opposed to mucous retention cysts, which usually resolve on their own. ...Read more
Can a Mucous Retention Cyst in the inferior aspect of the left max sinus cause unilateral ptosis? CT also shows thickening of several ethmoid air cell
No: No, very unlikely. Mucous retention cysts in the sinuses are very common. The ethmoid thickening is also unlikely to cause the issue. I would look for another reason for the ptosis. ...Read more
