Sinus Infections, Snoring, Headaches and Loss of Smell

Sinus infections, snoring, headaches and loss of smell

“For many years I have had seasonal sinus infections and head aches that got so bad I would go to my regular doctor for help. They would give me some type of antibiotic and it would go away for awhile and then return. Then I started to snore all the time. So my wife pushed me to find out why and what to do about it. I learned of Dr. Setzen from taking my in-law to him years earlier. Dr. Setzen did an excellent exam of my sinuses to find most of the problems where being caused by polyps in my sinuses. I made the big mistake of waiting to take care of them that they grew to be over 100 of the in my sinuses. Don’t wait and prolong the issues like me go get it looked at. They had grown so much that I could no longer smell and also pressure headaches. After having them removed and short healing time I began to stop snoring my smell is coming back and no more sinus infections with the headaches. I now go for a regular check to be sure they don’t grow back. I am also breathing better since the nasal passages are not blocked by the polyps. The longer you wait to take care of these things the more they grow stop living with bad sleep headaches and poor breathing and sense of smell stop by Dr. Setzen and get it checked out before it becomes a larger problem than it has to be”
