Allergic rhinitis: Try OTC antihistamines such as allegra or zyrtec , together with nasal corticosteroid spray(Nasacort, is now over the counter). Of course avoidance of allergens is a must if possible( cat , carpet, pollen etc). If not better , go to your PCP if you can take singulair too. ...Read more

Possibly: Thickened lining of the maxillary sinus could mean inadequate drainage of your sinuses. The increased pressure can cause headaches. You need to be evaluated by an ENT doctor and possibly have a ct scan done for a complete diagnosis. ...Read more

Deviated septum: a deviated septum can be corrected surgically to bring the septum to the midline. If there are symptoms like nasal obstruction, snoring or recurrent sinusitis, have your nose evaluated by a board certified otolaryngologist. ...Read more

1.Acute bronchitis, 
2.Allergic rhino laryngitis, CT scan report:mild mucosal  thickening in bilateral maxillary sinuses.Still same prb after treatment.

Allergy testing: In allergic rhinitis, it would not be unusual to only have mild mucosal thickening on ct scan. That's good news... You don't have sinusitis or some other process going on! if 3-4 weeks of regular nasal steroid spray doesn't help, (must be used as prescribe to work) then you may want to see an allergist for formal allergy testing. ...Read more

Facial pain: It seems unlikely that your sinuses are causing your facial pain, since you don't have acute sinusitis on the mri. There are many causes of facial pain, some of which are very serious. Contact the facial pain association for more information and help. ...Read more

Does maxillary sinusitis cause vertigo? Is vertigo ever caused by sinusitis of the maxillary sinuses?

Does maxillary sinusitis cause vertigo?       Is vertigo ever caused by sinusitis of the maxillary sinuses?

Maybe: A bad sinus infection can inflammation of the upper airway which includes the eustachian tube. This will lead to inadequate opening of the eustachian tube which then cause negative pressure in the middle ear space, which can affect the inner ear and balance center, ultimately causing vertigo. Although this can happen, this is not a common presentation of sinusitis. An ENT evaluation will help. ...Read more

See Immunologist: Nasal polyps should be evaluated for underlying potential causes (disease, medication effect, etc) and treated with medication or possibly even using procedures to decrease the activity of certain metabolic pathways; or by avoidance of contributing factors. An Allergist/Immunologist may be best equipped to perform this work-up. Polyps usually return after they have been removed. ...Read more
