Comments from related studies:
From this study (8 months ago):
The sinus pain occurs when I drink alcohol most of the time but does occurs without the use of alcohol beverages. I get some relief by using a very hot towel for about 30 minutes and the Flunisolide. My doctor has given me MRI's, CAT Scans, blood work, eye pressure test and stress tests. I am retired military and I have traveled all over the world. The sinus pain began in Texas in 2005 after a severe sinus infection that was not treated properly by my ex-doctor.
From this study (2 years ago):
Was feeling ill with headache and stomach upset for several days, then drank about 4 mixed drinks and started vomiting violently and shaking and was losing consciousness, still dizzy and achy and nausea and confusion two days later.
