Thanks for writing to us.
As Per the history mentioned here you have been suffering from Acute Upper Respiratory Infection
.In all probabality your doctor would have thought in terms of "VIRAL" origin so she would not have started on any empirical antibiotics.
The infection could have spread to both maxillary sinuses
leading to a clogging feeling and heavyness in the head.Have you been having fever as well?Pls check your temperature.
The treatment protocol has to start with (1)Adequate Bedrest
and repeated Steam Inhalation and Clearance of throat and nose repeatedly(2)Vitamin "C" supplimentation.(3)Decongestant Nasal Drops such as Xylometazoline(4)Broad Spectrum Antibiotics(5)Anti-Allergics such as Cetrizine
5mg thrice a day or as advised by physician(6)NSAIDS(7)Avoidance of Smoking/Tinned Food/Refrigerated Food (8)warm Saline/betadine
gargling repeatedly at least thrice daily.
Keeping oneself Warm as a dip in more than 10 degree Celsius will increase the spread of respiratory infections in the community.
Wishing you a Speedy recovery.,
Dr Lt Cdr ASN Bhushan.,
