What were your initial symptoms? I have had sinus issues since 1993. Waking up congested is my normal. Somedays the congestion never clears up. When my sinus problem is acting up I get a bit of a sore throat. And my breath...well...smells like crotch rot. Needless to say when I am like this I have very little sense of smell. Well..this is one of those days. Thinking I may call the doc but with my history of sinus troubles kinda feel I'm just being paranoid.
