Diane of Los Angeles posted about her Sinus-like symptoms way back in 2012. I hope she is still free of them now. Even when I worked in one of the hottest countries on Earth, I had sinus like symptoms for a time and naturally wondered why? The outdoor temperature could sometimes get as high as 50 degrees centigrade and was regularly in the high forties!! It was not a humid heat either. An Indian (ex pat) friend suggested that I should wear a woolen hat to bed each night and I came right after a while. I could also put vaseline-coated, cotton-wool balls in my ears for extra protection. This was especially important to do if I was suffering from ear problems, as keeping water and particularly shampoo out of the ears, where it can be very irritating, is crucial. This was similar to the advice given to Diane. Those fans and air-conditioning systems had a lot to answer for too of course. We were cautioned never to sleep with both systems running at night. Shorthy before we arrived, someone had recently collapsed and died in such circumstances after suddenly transiting from outside to inside temperatures.
The cause of death on the death certificate was sometimes listed as "The Climate"! Wow!
Another simple solution to help make our quality of life better
I did not wear the hat during the daytime though!
I wore my pith helmet and carried an umbrella and a fan. (Not really).
Keep Head Warm
About 2 months ago I discovered that keeping the crown of my head warm using caps, hats or whatever helps to keep my head warm stopped my Sinusitis attacks! I had suffered from Sinusitis for over 11 years! No medical professional could help me and when they tried they usually prescribed loads of antibiotics that would not work. I saw many, many Doctors and had no relief from Sinusitis except for over the counter medications (benadryl). And I continued to suffer.
During one sinusitis attack about 2 months ago I noticed that the top back of my head was super cold. So I blow dried my head and the heat from the blow dryer helped ease my attack. This caused me to wonder about the cold on my head.
During the night I would wake up with a full blown attack of acid mucus keeping me awake and miserable. It was horrible. The acid mucus burned everything it touched.
I began wrapping my head in either a T shirt or a flannel to keep my head warm at night. This stopped my sinusitis attacks at night so I started using warm caps during the day. The caps on my head kept me well all day!
About 3 weeks ago during the night my cap fell off my head and I had sinus attacks for 2 days but they were not as harsh as the attacks in the past.
I have continued keeping my head warm especially at night or on cold days and I haven't had one attack in weeks! I recently fell asleep without a cap on and I have no sinusitis attacks! I seem to be healed.
I don't know why my head was cold but keeping my head warm seems to have healed my Sinuistis problem. No cold head and now no sinusitis! I will report back to Earth clinic in a couple months to see if this medical success story continues for me!
Keep Head Warm
My Sinusitis attacks are GONE! I have been noticing that everytime I had a Sinusitis Attack- the crown of my head towards the back of my head would feel very cold! I would get relief from my Sinusitis Attacks by using a blow dryer on my head to warm my head. So I started wearing a warm Hat or Cap 24/7!
At night (if it is really cold) I not only wear my cap or hat but I also will wrap a sweatshirt or T-Shirt around my head on top of my hat to ensure my head is not cold at all. THIS HAS STOPPED ALL SINUSITIS ATTACKS! I have not had any problem with my sinuses at all since I kept my head warm!
It seems that I never had a sinus problem---but I seem to have a Cold Head problem that triggers my sinusitis attacks! My Sinusitus Attacks had become so bad they were now like panic attacks! Really horrible and ruining my life!
Whatever was draining (mucus/liquid) was burning my ears, sinuses, throat, and chest. I no longer need to irrigate my sinuses with my neti pot and various treatments as my sinuses are now back to normal. I have suffered from Sinusitis for 11 years!
Hope this helps YOU as it did for me!
