Was: Was the sinus surgery performed after the eye became swollen in response to an orbital complication of sinus disease, or has the eye swelling followed the sinus surgery, and if so, what was the timing? An orbital complication of sinus disease is, at the very least, justification for sinus ct study and IV antibiotic therapy unless you are talking about very early pre-septal cellulitis. What was the evaluation performed in the er? How was she treated? Something doesn't add up if you have had to go to the er 3 times....Were symptoms getting worse? If so, I would think she would have been admitted for IV antibiotics and further treatment. Read more

Think I have a sinus infection. My right actual eyeball is starting to look swollen and bigger then the other. Can it be from sinus infection?

Think I have a sinus infection. My right actual eyeball is starting to look swollen and bigger then the other. Can it be from sinus infection?

Possible; concerning: The usual sinus infection should not cause your eye to protrude out/make it swollen, unless abscess forming and pushing up thus pushing the eyeball forward. Because of much inflammation, some swelling/edema of the lid is common. Since your description is quite concerning due to eye involvement, I recommend seeing doc asap for eval and treatment. Good luck. Read more

Left eyelid twitches and feels swollen underneath eye but isn't. Sinus issues. Eye dr said eyes are perfect. No sinus infection. Should I be worried?

Myokymia: Random twitching of an eyelid, which is benign, is called myokymia (an involuntary, spontaneous, quivering of a few muscle cell bundles within a muscle). Ocular myokymia, is quite common and self-limited, it can last a few minutes to a few days. It can be caused by stress, dry eyes, fatigue, caffeine, and lack of sleep. Reduce intake of alcohol/tobacco/caffeine, get rest, reduce stress, tx eyes. Read more

Feel like I'm getting a sinus infection face, head hurt, nose is swollen on left side, lip is swollen, face feels hot and puffy n sore? What can I do?

Allergy/infection: You are describing symptoms that could be due to allergy or to a sinus infection. Taking an anti-histamine like Claritin, (loratadine) Allegra or Zyrtec (not all 3) will help allergy a lot, and maybe help sinus infection a little. If you have a fever, chills and/or sweats then sinus infection is more likely. If symptoms don't clear up with an anti-histamine, then you should see a doctor. Read more
