I Know You All Want to Know... (haha)

So I don't have ear infections (YAY) but I do have some majorly swollen sinuses, which are pressing against my ear, causing the pain. I love this new ENT NP! She is wonderful - she took her time explaining everything to me, she had 6 kids, was an OB nurse, is the cutest thing ever.

Anyway, she did an endoscopy of my nostrils and took cultures (not comfortable in any way). I should know by Wednesday if it is a bacterial infection. If not it could be one of two things...viral or allergies. If viral, has to take its course, if allergies, I can get tested again and then possibly take shots (which I don't want to do).

That's the story! She gave me a nose spray that is non-addicting but is supposed to be really good and taught me the proper way to use the spray. I am actually looking forward to using it tonight (and the fact that is has an antihistamine in it means I will sleep well!!)
