I had been struggling with sinus problems the last 10 years before I had the spinal cord injury. The two months in the hopsital lessened my problems for over a year, but last winter, my sinus problems came back with a vengeance.  I started getting congested in Novemeber, and by early December, I was sleeping with my mouth open, and sinus medications weren't helping.

Finally, by the end of February, the congestion got manageable, but I couldn't go two days without the sinus medication, or else the congestion would come back strong.

At the beginning of this month, I started taking a supplement called serrapeptase.  It is used as a sinus remedy in Europe in Japan.  But my research also revealed that it seems to help MS sufferers also.

Supposedly, it reduces inflammation, and also reduces scar tissues so the nerves can regrow properly.

What I write here only applies to me, but not only have I not taken any sinus medication since starting on serrapeptase, but I feel a lot lighter on my feet.  I'm not 100% recoevered re walking, but I seem to have experienced another recovery spurt - something that has been few and far between since last September.

So, for the time being, I will continue to take this supplement.
