Having frequent episodes of intense headache, evoked by dust and smoke (AKA: allergic sinusitis) is just pure torture! It technically means that I’m allergic to air!!
It’s like getting locked where an irritating song plays over and over! It ain’t just about having to tolerate that sharp pain pinching every inch of my face, it’s also how it disturbs all my senses! As the slightest tilt of my head hurts, everything becomes provoking; reading, thinking, even the softest sound, and I turn into a nagging (and sometimes aggressive) creature!
And since medications don’t seem to work, or let’s say, they take time. I end up spending a week or so, fighting the urge to bang my head to the closest wall, till the attack subsides.. Thank God, I haven’t gone insane yet, but it’s out of my hands; I can’t stop breathing air!
