Severe sinus swelling-ent had difficulty scoping me. Infected maxillary + sphenoid sinuses. I use cpap. Is it better if i stop cpap a few days?

If sinus pain, yellow nasal secretions and sore throat, think sinus infection. If you feel infected, AVOIDING antihistamines helps a lot because they slow recovery. Other causes are possible too: dental, thyroid, angioedema , etc: http://www.healthline.com/health/facial-swelling ...Read more
