Hi there,

I've had a long time infection in and around my left jaw, ear and side of neck. I've done quite a bit of ozone injections in jaw, etc.

I've been feeling a lot more ear/side neck involvement since doing the neti pot. It's recently made me more aware that I've been feeling odd in this area for a long time. And my nostril on that side almost always gets stuffed when I sleep.

I'd like to find a good ENT (I have a post over in Seeking). I wanted to ask if there are any dos and don'ts you can think of. A friend of mine yesterday said be careful when they want to do a scope to take a look inside, they often first put a steroid spray in, saying it makes it easier to get the scope in (and they don't usually tell you it's steroids!). Is there anything else I need to be aware of?

Thanks,
Tammy

CCSVI causes a number of symptoms in the neck area because it limits the blood perfusion into the area. Venous stoppage in the neck "lock" the toxins and germs/infections/pathogens in the head/neck/jaw area; arteries do not supply the area with enough blood = causing jaw and dental problems.

Hearing? Iron deposits? damaging tissue? Brain function? Thyroid function? Lymphatic drainage?

Addressing biofilm constantly is very important.



Take care.

Thank you. All great ideas.

Will start up my lumbrokinase again for biofilm.

I think I am also having fungal issues compacting the problem.

I've got the EXACT same issue Tammy. Been to endless ENTs.. zero assistance. I seriously think CCSVI may be an issue for me, but can't get any help with it.

Oh no! I have been to the ENT several times since this whole lyme thing started in 2010 and he numbs my nose with that spray everytime and I didn't know it was steroids!
I wont let him do that again now that I know.
Are these pretty low does steroids does anyone know? Something else to think about... [Frown]

Nothing else I think you need to be aware of at ENT in my experience. The only other thing mine does is look in my ears and throat with his flashlight thing.
