Acute sinusitis

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic and thanks for putting up the query
You are probably suffering from acute sinusitis. Instead of plain amoxicillin take a combination of amoxicillin and clavulinuc acid twice daily for a week
Take tablet anticold twice daily and
Nasal spray twice daily
Take paracetamol for pain
All the medicines I have prescribed will be available only on prescription.
Get a x-ray paranasal sinuses done and send me the reports.
Wishing you a speedy recovery.
Take care
Thanks and regards

10 yr old daughter s symptoms are sneezing that clears her sinus cavities several times a day even though she has no congestion, drainage, burping, feeling of food sitting in throat or esophagus, nausea, hardness in stomach. Cat scan of sinuses showed very slight inflammation; upper endoscopy w/ biopsies & ph probe were all clear; scratch test for food & environment all clear. Allergy meds, Nexium, Prilosec failed to resolve symptoms. What might cause these symptoms?

I sometimes get a weird feeling in my head. I call it being light headed, but I read about light headedness and my feeling doesn t fit. It is like sinus pressure because it is in the sinuses as well as the top of my head. It doesn t happen all the time, but is annoying when it does.
