Goodmorning everyone, for about a month I felt a frontal headache, light but persistent over time. At first I thought it was a tension-type headache, but since it wasn't going away I thought it appropriate to investigate. So I went to an otolaryngologist who prescribed a tac with a certain urgency. The report speaks of a paranasal sinus infection. Treatment involves taking antibiotics and corticosteroids in massive form. From what I learned during this period I believe that stress and work and family tensions have led to a lowering of the immune system and what was a simple inflammation has transformed into a true infection. That said, I decided to take the indicated therapy, the pain is so strong. How would you have behaved in these circumstances? Personally I initially underestimated the problem trying to convince myself that it was just emotional tension, but when the pain was unbearable I chose to resort to drugs. I recognize that I am going through a very difficult period: economic problems; my wife has lost her job, my job is very demanding, we have two children and we are far from relatives. Normally, everything turns in a dynamic balance, but it takes very little to change these balances. In my case it was enough that our babysitter found another job and that I spent a very stressful work week to incredibly raise the level of stress. What I am thinking about is the fact that tensions can set the stage for these problems which, when started, require an allopathic treatment to be eradicated because the psycho-therapeutic approach is not sufficient.
