You have my sympathy, I have exactly the same at 11+6. I've tried to avoid taking even paracetamol but I'm really suffering.
Don't have any suggestions as I asked the same thing a couple of days ago and the answer was a resounding "All you can take is paracetamol!", I just wanted to sympathise and hope you feel better soon x x
Mine came to a head last night when I started coughing when brushing my teeth and was slightly sick
Things that are definitely working even though it's still at the 'it has to get worse before it can get better' stage:
Inhaling steam with Vicks/Olbas Oil in
Nasal rinses with lovely warn salt water
Putting an extra pillow underneath my normal two at night to prop my head and back up- the last thing you want is to develop an ear infection from not allowing sinuses to drain
I've also just read that there are antibacterial properties to onion juice so may heat some up with something, and also aniseed tea helps which I have sitting in the kitchen so these are what I'll be testing today.
Does anyone have any relief for the temperature and thumping sinus pressure?? By the time mine has calmed down from night time it's almost time for bed again
Oh girls i feel your pain, i have the same since Sunday.
No adivice im afraid, what i find is helping is drinking lemon juice in hot water with a spoon of sugar helps my throat a bit.
Hot drinks and plenty of rest and is all i am doing atm.
