I've only been living in Montana for 2 weeks, and since my arrival, and i've noticed this with visits here, my sinuses stay jacked up while i'm here. As a resident now, i'm concerned. I have an allergy to cow's milk but I know what to eat and I know it's not my milk allergy that is giving me problems. In the past, I had fewer sinus issues in dry climates. I lived in El Paso for 2 years and my allergy problems were minimal, whereas Dallas, they were kind of rough. I've yet to experience a sinus problem free day here in Montana. I can't seem to find anything on the net in conjunction with this area or the state in regards to sinus issues. Anyone have any insight in to my problem? Could it be the region or just an adjustment to the region?

Let's see, you're in Butte. Perhaps your allergic to arsenic, lead, mercury, or radon?

And don't forget the altitude. I had the same problems coming back to Montana from sea-level. But, it is funny that this issue has come up, because I've been back in Montana for two years now.....and I have sinus problems during this time of year, which I've never had before and I grew up here.

It could be that most folks here have wood or pellet stoves. Whenever we crank up the wood stove each fall, my sinuses go on over time.

Default Sinus

I used to have terrible sinus problems, but that was when I was smoking. You didn't mention that, just asking.

Also, I think some air conditioning systems cause it, when growing up we didn't have central air conditioning, never had sinus pains.

Only after being in a central air conditioned home , did my sinus start.

Some of the worst headaches I have ever had in my life came from sinuses.


Hope yours gets better , maybe Montana air has something to do with it?

I've never been to Montana but maybe it's stress, not stuff in the air. I moved to St. Louis this summer and after I got one a sinus infection almost right away. I'm fine now. I think my immune system was down due to the stress of moving. Feel better soon!

I don't smoke and it's not central air. Prior to moving here every place i've lived i've lived in central air. But with that said, where i'm staying now doesn't have central air.

Stress could be a factor. I moved to Chicago, 2 weeks later my dad died, then 2 weeks after he died I returned to Chicago only to find I didn't have a place to live, so I had to move again (so I moved here). I have a few other issues that I won't mention but stress would be putting it lightly. In the past 3 months i've stayed the night in 7 states, at 14 different places. The past 90 days have been hell to say the least.

I spent 5 weeks in Montana a couple of years ago and had the same problem. Also random nose bleeds. Also had the problem in WY and Colorado. It was the altitude and low humidity that caused my issue.
Maybe a humidifier in your house would help.

I second the humidifier in your home. The air is dry and if you are coming from an area that is more humid then you need moisture. Also a saline nose spray will help. Good Luck! Remember that you need to stay hydrated so drink lots of water.

Get a saline nasal spray from the drugstore, it is harmless and will help.
