Sinus pain and congestion can bring on a world of discomfort. I will never forget the worst sinus infection that I ever had in my life…
During the first two months of Mike and I dating, I developed a sinus infection like no other. Never in my life had I felt such pain, pressure, and agony in my sinuses. This sucker lasted about 5 weeks. Imagine how hot this was during a new, budding romance. Green snots, mouth-breathing, and phlegm central – and yet, he stuck it out and is now my husband. What a trooper!
Of course, since then there have been many other sinus battles throughout our relationship. We have both had our fair share of colds, and I have nasty allergies. Sinus congestion is no stranger around here. Sudafed can always be found in our medicine cabinet. Taking it provides the relief that is necessary to function as a human during nasty sinus issues.
Sinus Sufferers Unite and Find Relief with Sudafed
Right now you can visit the Sudafed OPEN UP™ application on Facebook to create a fun picture of how sinus congestion makes you feel. Participate in a conversation with other sinus sufferers and even earn a chance to win $5,000! You will also receive a money-saving coupon just for participating.
I tried out the app myself and had fun editing a picture of Shelley and I. Each item represents how sinus pain can make you feel. Things like, an elephant or brick on your chest, drippy nose, airy head, and being hit on the head by a sledgehammer seem quite accurate.
In addition to allergies and colds, I also take a Sudafed before all plane rides. It helps with ear pain and pressure while flying. I was told to do this at an early age by a doctor. It dries up any congestion that could cause extra pain and pressure during a flight. Definitely has helped me fly pain-free for many years!
