.... then while on meds for it and nose sray still having the HA so they decided it was cluster. I had a sinus film done and it showed some blockage on the same side that my head hurt on. Anyway the point is before they have they tube up the nose thing make sure it is not CH and is infact sinus related. I know a few people who have had this done and they have all told me it is one of the most painful things they have ever had done. One of my contractors a 60 year old worked outside in construction- tuff guy type, cried and said he would rather have stuffed sinuses, then ever have to have that again. There were talking about doing that to me as well before they concluded it was Ch and he told what ever I do don't have it done. So I guess the point is rule out everything else before going thru that. Others may have had it done and it was fine but I have heard nothing good about it. My mother has really bad sinus, while they have never put the tube up her nose, they have shoved cotton up her nose and she tries to avoid that at all costs.
