As for nickieb, I have not had any of those symptoms you describe, except maybe some pressure in
my ear, but not the cheeks and not any numbness.
To Steve19, that is interesting about the sneeze
. I have not thought of that or noticed it, but I'll try that next time. I'll just take a whiff of pepper and see if I can sneeze it out. I agree with you that it seems some things work better some than others.
