I have lower back pain and a sinus infection. Are the two related at all?

Sprain/strain: It is unlikely that your sinus infection and the low back pain are connected...except indirectly that if you feel bad/sick because of the infection, your tolerance for dealing with the low back pain will be diminished. Your low back pain can be a lumbar facet issue, a discogenic pain or simply a strain/sprain. You could also have a kidney stone or stone in one of your ureters. See your doctor. ...Read more

You are right.: Call the doctor and ask to be seen or at least if they can treat you again. Sometimes is necessary to be treated for two weeks at least. Ask the opinion of your primary care or ENT about how to treat best. If you are smoking this will make it worse. ...Read more

How long untill I start seeing improvement for persistent sinus infection I already had endioscopic surgery and the infection came back?

How long untill I start seeing improvement for persistent sinus infection I already had endioscopic surgery and the infection came back?

Ask your surgeon: The purposes of sinus surgery can be summarized in two words. Ventilation and drainage. That does not mean that you can not develop an infection in those same sinuses following a viral infection of the nose. It is impossible to really answer your question because we do not know how extensive your sinusitis or surgery was. Did you have polyps. They often recur. Check with your surgeon. ...Read more

I have a sinus infection and when they tested the bacteria it came back positive for trich, how?

I have a sinus infection and when they tested the bacteria it came back positive for trich, how?

Trichimonas sinus : It is not out of the realm of possibility that a vaginal bacteria could potentially infect a non vaginal site. For a bacteria to grow it needs a warm site and the sinus could be that site. As long as you treat it with the appropriate antibiotic that it clears the infection. I see no problem. Wash your hands thoroughly when using the restroom or after any contact with that area. ...Read more
