You might not remember if you had sustained damage to your nose and/or facial area due to early childhood physical abuse (such as from a baby sitter?). Do you suspect that you might have sustained that kind of injury? That would be in line with the articles Didi has cited.

Did you have any birth injuries? Were you a forceps delivery? I'm not trying to embarass you. I definitely did have birth injuries. My Mother was in great pain and I was just not coming out. The scenario is that the mother screams and the Dr. reaches in with a big pair of tongs shaped to grab the baby behind the head and pull it out. He can't really see what he's doing and the baby is slippery and squirming and the mother is screaming and so he inadvertantly grabs the baby's face and starts pulling. The baby sustains damage to the facial area or to the cranium. At birth the Dr. reassures the mother that these things sometimes happen and that they will be self-correcting. Indeed, the bones in the baby's scull are cartilagenous and they can move about a bit without damaging the brain.

After the surgery I was a miserable wreck and three weeks after the surgery I got into a fight with a guy who head butted me in the nose of course and since then it has been a re-occurring issue with sinus infections etc.

I was wondering would this have any affect on increase in depression, anxiety? I thought I would start here and then go to the dr. ask him and possibly look into other remedies of helping my sinus and as well as relief on my head.


Lynch:

Any long-term medical problem with physical pain involved can have mental-health consequences certainly. I would guess that your symptoms of depression could be most affected. I'm not as certain how personal anxiety could be as much affected unless you are worried about getting smacked in the nose again. But being depressed because of longer-term pain and the other issues that you mentioned could exacerbate your inability to cope with and deal effectively with your other mental health issues including anxiety.

Take a Lexapro every morning for a month, then see how you feel.

Hi Lynchmob,

The cranial bones can be displaced (as mentioned above by Allen) due to many reasons including birth trauma, and being head-butted :-) Maybe you've heard of Craniosacral therapy? an extremely gentle manual technique developed by osteopathic physician, John Upledger.

I googled craniosacral and depression and this is one of the articles that came up.

Hello Riz,

That is an excellent web page! I suffer from positional verigo. Although I have been ok for over a year, it is definately something to think about.

Take care,

Didi
