Happy Monday Y’all! I hope you had a nice start to your week! How do you see Monday’s? Do you think of Monday as just another painful start to a new week or is it a new start for change? My week did not start off the way I would have liked because the headache I had all weekend did not want to give me a break. I would have thought dealing with the constant back and leg pain would have been enough to cope with, but of course not instead my headaches have increased drastically!
I have been trying to figure out what is really causing my terrible headaches. The only things I have been able to come with are the lesions that are living in my brain or bad sinus issues or maybe even a combination of the two. I do know that headaches are pretty common with MS, but I am wondering if sinus issues are as well. Is it possible MS lesions could actually be in my sinuses? Do any of you reading this experience sinus troubles and if so, what do you do to relieve the awful pain it causes? At one point, I had convinced myself that the Gilenya I take for the MS was the reason for my sinus troubles. I was so convinced, I decided to switch my MS medication to a different disease modifying medication back August 2017. This was not one of my best decisions because I had a horrible flare up due to my change and the stress leading up to my decision. Of course I am still dealing with some of the residual effects from that flare up, but I am staying strong and positive knowing I will get back to where I was before the flare up!
Please let me ask y’all a question, do any of you deal with sinus headaches? There is definitely a difference between a sinus headache and other headaches; such as cluster, migraine and tension headaches. Personally I do deal with several different types of headaches, but it seems like nothing at all helps these damn sinus headaches! I was so miserable with this headache all weekend, I did not leave the house and it was still hanging over my head today causing me to miss work today! I do find that hot water helps my sinus pressure some, but you can not really stay in a hot shower all day long.
