View Full Version : Mri results

So after bad headaches for a few months docs referred me for an Mri which came back 'normal' except for slight sinusitis and a polyp in one of my left sinuses. So I'm wondering why I wasn't referred to an ENT to have a look at the polyp I mean it could be what is causing my constant daily headaches couldn't it. ?

Yes it absolutely can. The polyp can cause a clog which can cause headaches. This is great news. They will just have to remove the polyp and you will feel better :)

Hey thanks for the reply :) the problem is my doctor dismissed it like it was nothing. Didn't even refer me to a specialist so I don't think they're actually plannin on removing it or anything.

Could you ask your doctor if they intend to do anything about it? I have no idea if polyps can cause headaches etc, I was told they can cause pain in the sinuses and blocked nose etc by my GP when she checked me for them. Did you have a brain MRI? it's just that I always wondered if your sinuses show up on these?

Hey my doc said they don't cause headaches but from what I've read online from people's personal experience they said it causes headaches. I just found it strange that I wasn't even referred to ENT just to be on the safe side. And yes I had a brain MRI and it showe my sinuses too :)
