Since November of 2011 I have had a sinus congestion problem. I have significant pressure in my head that moves around and includes tingling in my ear and pressure at the top of my forehead. I have been to two ENT specialists, have had a Sinus CT Scan which indicated a mild sinus inflammatory disease with the maxillary sinuses but otherwise no problems, have also had a nasal scope exam which was normal. I have continual mucous drainage with a clear color. I have tried nasal sprays, musinics, two rounds of antibiotics (fluticasone propotanate - 50mg) Has anyone else with Parkinsons had something similiar that could be related to Parkinsons or Parkinsons medication problems. I take Carbadopa/Levodopa, Comtan, Requip, Azilect. Any help would be appreciated.
