Does Sinus Problems Accompany Perimenopause?I just some what celebrated my 49th birthday and to accompany my birthday was sinus problems. I have the weirdest symptoms ever, because if my sinuses i keep smelling phantom cigarette smoke but no smokes here. Last night i began to notice this smell comes with i'm around dust. Has anyone had anything close to this happen to them? I don't know what to do, I'm on Claritin and i have been using sinus rinses but no complete relief....any suggestions. I read that perimenopausal women can get allergies that they never had before. Please if anyone has had this problem and knows what i can to stop smelling this phantom smoke please let me know.
