    Chronic Sinusitis Causing Fixed Dilated Pupil?

    I have suffered from recurrent bouts of

    sinusitis for about 2 years. The cold weather seems to trigger it almost every other week in the winter. The only cure i have found is to pump salt water through my nostrils a few times a day until it gets better. If anyone knows anything else that could be triggering it, or...
