are my sinuses supposed to creak?
The doctor gave me a new antibiotic for my ongoing sinus problems. All day I've been hearing these really wierd creaking noises in my head.

I just sneezed a few minutes ago and there was gravel in my handkerchief.

3. That happens to me too
The ears/nose/throat specialist said that happens to some people but it is rare. For me, my nerves make parts of my sinuses and ears move that don't move in most people. This helps clear the sinus a little bit.
I don't know if he is right. I been to many webpages and have not found creaking sinuses as a symptom and when I thought that I had allergies, the allergist said that he had only heard sinuses like that three other times in his 20 years as an allergist.
