I've had sinus stuff since at least the beginning of December. Two rounds of antibiotics, ups and downs (a norovirus is actually great for clearing your nasal passages), but still a problem. I'm on the verge of getting an ENT consult, but I realize that what with feeling terrible most of the time I haven't actually managed to do all of the palliative/slow-healing recommendations at the same time, and that that might be important.

I now have a 13-item checklist of what to do daily. I'll try this for a week and then get the probably useless referral. (Lots of stress and worry in having recurrent sinus ick for me; this is why I had to leave undergrad the first time and I'm very scared of it now.)


  • Real Sudafed in the morning

  • Humidifier whenever at home

  • Tea AM

  • Saline nose spray AM

  • Tea/soup at lunch

  • Saline nose spray at lunch

  • Tea/soup at dinner

  • Saline nose spray evening

  • Hot bath, preferably with aromatics, keep throat submerged as much as possible

  • Energetic coughing and removing tonsil ick in shower

  • Neti pot in shower

  • Flonase after the saline drains out and before bed

  • Nyquil


Shooting for 90% at least. Wish me luck.
