carly, my sinus MRI's and C/T scans have looked similar to yours. your sinuses are definitely all clogged up!

there are supposed to be large open spaces in there. you are already doing what's been recommended by your ENT, and i did the same, even having 3 surgeries. none of this helped much.

so before you jump into something drastic like surgery, i'm sure you will give all the other treatments a long trial. surgery is certainly not fun, and may or may not help, so more conservative things are surely in order for you, especially given your young age.

it seems that nobody really understands sinuses all that much, but if you go to a surgeon, they are going to see a surgical problem. perhaps you could get another opinion from an ENT. two brains (or more) are always better. good luck to you, dianne

Firstly, thanks for the reply(: My family don't believe its a sinus infection causing my migraines... I've had them for almost 5 years now! My parents both agree we're going to get a second opinion from another hospital. Most people who've had the "antal washout" surgery have said it hasn't worked... I don't show any of the symptoms of the sinus disease; no runny nose, no blocked nose, no frequent colds... but I may still have the surgery; I'll try anything to make the pain stop(: Thanks for the advice!xxx
