Patient discussion about ENT

Q. I have been having chronic pain in sinus area and behind my eyes, been to ENT who states it is not infection? I wake up with the pain and go to sleep in severe pain. Its all day and all night. Dr insists that its migraine related and allergy related. I have chronic postnasal drainage. It started 4 months ago when I moved into our new house. The pain makes me extremely fatigue and dizzy at times. I have been referred to the eye doctor, a headache specialist and an allergy specialist. Just recently I have had a CT scan and an MRI, as well as xrays of my sinus. Nothing other than a deviated septum and possible allergies from an ENT has been diagnosed. In the mean time I am waiting for the days to come when I can get into see these specialist. Anyone out there have any of the same symptoms?? Need help here. Soooooo sick of the pain.

A. i have chronic sinusitis and can really relate to what you describe. learned to live with the pain...but still, i use various ways to reduce inflammation in my sinuses, i heat the place up before going to sleep, try to avoid eating or drinking cold stuff.
another thing i do is i heat water (80c) then add a special oil i bought in a chinese medicine store , about 5 drops, and inhale the fumes. nettle tea can do wonders too.

For the reader of The Lord of the Rings, the story of the Entwives begins with Pippin's inquiry as to "how [...] they all died." Though Treebeard takes offense, quickly correcting Pippin--"I never said died.
Bregalad, whom the hobbits meet during Entmoot, speaks of how the Ents planted rowan trees to try to please the Entwives, "but they looked at them and smiled and said that they knew where whiter blossom and richer fruit were growing" (III.4.483).
According to Olsen, the elvish song of the Ent and Entwife reveals the most about the "tragic estrangement from the Entwives" and "offers some of Tolkien's most compelling insights on the complexities and conflicts of life in a fallen world" (41).
The Ents and the Entwives, if unified, would balance and complete each other.
With Olsen's considerable insights in mind, it is useful to return to Petty's brief claim that the Ents and Entwives stand as an admonition not to neglect one's spouse: to consider how the long sorrow of the Ents specifically and deliberately points the reader toward the challenges of marriage in a fallen world, and especially in Tolkien and Lewis's world of gendered divisions, implying an ideal of lovers walking side by side in friendship and common pursuit.
Though it might not seem as apparent as their differences, evidence of the bond between the Ents and the Entwives permeates the narrative.
They do not mock the Entwives' gardening, though the language of Treebeard's tale betrays a certain petulance, and perhaps a hint of jealousy of the admiration that the Entwives receive from the human races.
Children--or their absence--also inform a reader's understanding of the Ents and Entwives' separation.
Nevertheless, Lewis's commentary, Carpenter's representation, and Edith and Ronald's married separation of spheres seem related to the self-segregation of the Ents and the Entwives according to gendered interests, as the Ents and Entwives separate not as individual couples, but en masse.
Here, we learn that the fallen nature of the world does not allow for an easy connection between spouses, and that marriage is active--requiring work much like the tending of the Entwives' garden in order to bear fruit--rather than a passive state, the ideal of a love that will simply continue in bliss as ages pass.
(13) That Entmaidens seemingly disappeared before Entwives suggests that the problem of procreation pre-existed the complete disappearance of the Entwives.
