I have been having problems with pain at the top of my nasal cavity area. It initially felt like I had been punched in the face (I hadn't!) and my GP diagnosed sinusitis but when I failed to respond to antibiotics he referred me to ENT. My consultant thinks my condition may be related to my working environment as a podiatrist. The CT scan showed nothing sinister and the consultant thinks it may be neuralgia. He said that he saw another podiatrist with a similar condition recently. I was wondering if any of my right honourable arena colleagues had suffered from similar problems and, if so, had they been diagnosed with a specific condition?
I have had recurrent episodes of infected sinuses for the last 15 odd years. A dreadful acetone like smell emanates when one blows the nose. I stopped using the drill ~6 yrs ago, i think it's reduced the rate of occurrence. GP, like myself, blames the nail dust. On retirement looking forward to getting them flushed!, all the best, mark
