    My Sinus Infection Is A Distant Memory

    Addendum To My Earlier Post About 'Guaifenesin'

    I am by no means 'totally' cured - Not yet anyway - but am well on my way! But just to be free of the 'over 10' pain level behind my face is nothing short of a miracle. As for my sense of smell/taste, everything seems to be a 'little off?' (a lot of the time it seems like...
