    I think I have sinus problems. I'm going to see ENT soon. Has anyone seen them before? What should I expect?

    I've seen one. They aren't all that different from any other doctor. They will ask you some questions like you've probably already had and maybe have a look or feel of your sinuses. Mine had a tiny little camera on a sick for looking in my throat, so they might have one too. I didn't go for sinus issues so I can't tell you what might happen next in terms of treatments and stuff, but they will probably give you some options in that appointment and get you to go home, make a decision then call back (or maybe decide there and then if it's simple stuff).

    You can also use it an an opportunity to ask any questions, so maybe take a list if you have any. They should explain to you what any treatments involve, including potential risks, but you can always ask for more info if you don't feel like you know all you need/ want to.

    Hope that helps. Good luck for your appointment
