I'm interested in research being done on fungus from Sinusitis

Posted by @pclaire, Apr 26, 2016

I’m interested in research being done on Fungus. I was treated years a go with antibiotics and steroids for Sinusitis. It had no effect. Years after that unsuccessful attempt, I contracted a cold that cleared out my sinus and moved my infection to the throat. I believe I has also passed this infection on to a little cat I’m close too.

Hi @pclaire, welcome to Connect, an online community where people can talk with other patients, ask questions and share experiences.
I’d like to connect you with other members, so can you tell me a little more about your condition? Did you have fungal sinusitis, or did you experience a fungal infection as a trigger or side-effect?

Thank you for your interest. 
I was Not diagnosed with “Fugal” sinusitis, just sinusitis, and treated ineffectively with an antibiotic and then a nasal steroid which was too painful to continue after only one use. I believe my condition began as a fungal condition and the reason I think this is because of the nature of the symptoms.There has aways been an “aliveness” for lack of a better term. In the sinus; a gurgling, bubbling, crackling, and expansiveness that caused headache an burning and a thickening and discolored mucus. 
After a brief bout with the common cold, those symptoms clearly shifted from the sinus to the throat; the gurgling crackling, burning with certain food intakes, clots of discolored and thickened mucus. My sinus has been completely clear. The spittle that I’m experiencing is an expansive white foam. And on several occasions, while eating white rice, I had what appeared to be an allergic reaction, where my throat began to burn an swell shut until I expelled a stream of spittle. 
I have a pet cat that I’m very close too and now, for the past six months, I have been concerned as she is suffering with respiratory problems; sneezing out thick stands of mucus…as if my affliction has passed to her.
I don’t know what is understood in this field of fungal infections but I am interested in understanding for myself and the benefit of the broader community.
Thank you again for taking the time to contact me,Claire Wickland

I have also suffered from chronic sinusitis and experienced the crackling sensation in my nose. However, in 2013 I started going to a naturopath and take herbs which keep me healthy. The first thing I took was a liver cleanse and I have been free of sinus problems ever since. Maybe you can try this also. Carol
