Hello, @sp8239. Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I'm sorry to read about your symptoms and struggles.
While we wait for other members to respond- I'm interested to know what your sleep study results revealed and when is your next appointment with your ENT? Are you thinking about having your deviated septum fixed?
Also, here is some sinus information that Mayo offers on their webpage. -https://www.mayoclinic.org/departments-centers/rhinology-nose-and-sinus/overview/ovc-20426855
I think researching surgeons that have completed multiple sinus surgeries and looking for facilities that work closely with ophthalmologists should be a big part of your research.
Have you spoke with an ophalmologist to discuss potential risks with a surgery like this?
Can I ask where you live? Do you have access to visit Mayo Clinic in Rochester? The reason I ask is the Rhinologists here work closely with Allergists and Pulmonologists. Maybe that's something worth looking into?
Hello @greenjeans, Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. Thank you for posting!

Where did you get your information about oral steroids? What has your Ophthalmologist suggested about oral steroids?
Hello @karissa20, Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. Thank you for posting. I'm sorry to hear you have gone through this.
Have you talked with an Allergist? How is your voice? Is that effected with your throat tightness? I'm interested to see what the endoscopy shows- make sure to keep us updated, here. Here is a symptom checker that Mayo Clinic offers on their webpage- https://www.mayoclinic.org/symptom-checker/difficulty-swallowing-adult/related-factors/itt-20009075
Where did the sting take place? was it on your neck?
