Hi, back in the begining of November I caught what I thought was a cold. After five weeks of nose congestion I started taking Cefdinir. The congestion went away but in the half way through the antibiotics I began to get a dull head pain around my whole head. It keep me up at night. I could put my head on a pillow. After the meds, I went back to my general doctor. He told me I was getting better. But that night the pain was terrible. I called him the next day and told him something was wrong. He ordered a CT scan and found that I had a sinus infection in the frontal sinus and ethmoid (spelling) sinus . Since I am allergic to pennicillin, they put me on Cipro but later switched me to Biaxin. It has been slowly getting better, but I still have a dull ache around my head and nerviouness. It wakes me up a couple hours after I fall asleep. Could the CT scan have missed something or (since I ve never had a sinus infection before) is this part of the sinus infection?

hello, just about 2 weeks ago i had the sinus infection. Well, what i thought was a sous infection. I woke up today sick again-non stop headache, swollen glands, ear pains, and sore throat. But this time i feel much much worse. I m exhausted and tired and my headache is just killing me. I ate at noon and then at 4-7 took a nap. When i woke up at 7, i went to go eat. I was online to get stir fry and i got really uncomfortably hot- so i took off my jacket. My vision goes blurry, i could only see figures. I also got a weird stomach striking pain. I felt like I was going to faint in any moment. I stumbled outside in the cold, to get fresh air. I sat down and my vision and everything went away. I stayed out side for a good 5 minutes and saw how i was fine and i went back to go eat.

i had the flu/fever for 4 days, got better, then developed a sinus infection 2 days later. I went to my doctor and she prescribed me the 10 day antibiotic amoxicillin for my sinus infection. I have been taking it for 3 days now but the first day I was on it I got that wispy feeling in my throat that you get just before you get a cough. The next day I started lightly coughing. The next day I started a deeper cough and I could feel it may have traveled to my lungs. Today is slightly better but I still have congestion and a cough. Also throughout my entire 2 weeks so far of being sick, there has been a sore-like pain throughout my left arm, particularily my triceps brachi long head, flexor carpi ulnaris, and also the top of my rectus abdominis right under my diaphragm. What is wrong with me?

I m military and in basic and AIT (both located in GA) I developed a odd sounding chronic cough. I went through numerous tests to include XRAY, Methacholine challenge, GERD, Allergy and others I can t recall. I also have rhinitis which I m told by the allergist is not due to any allergy (I had a full skin test). It mostly subsided when I was stationed in Ft Lewis, WA while I was taking flonase and zyrtec. I ve since been stationed at Hunter AAF, GA and now the cough is back in full force and my rhinitis is no longer controlled by flonase. An allergist back at fort gordon told me it was cough variant asthma( after successfully reducing the symptoms with prednisone and then advair) but the pulmonologist at both fort gordon and fort lewis insist that I don t have asthma. While my symptoms are present I have a shortness of breath during running and similar exercises but to a lesser extent in washington. I had no issues during my deployment to Iraq (my 2 mile run times dropped four minutes with no changes in behavior) I was 18 when in Basic and AIT and now am 22 soon to be 23. Any ideas?

I a 33, 5 2, 160 lbs and have some symptoms of either MS or Devic s Disease (optic neuritis, spinal lesions, abnormal spinal tap). I have allergic rhinitis, gerd, and diverticulosis. My question or concern today is that I have no symptoms of sinusitis in my opinion, but my ears feel like there is a lot of pressure in them. Went to urgent care and they told me that is was sinusitis and that I had air trapped in my ears. i was given ru-hist, ru-hist d, astepro and verimist and also a hydrocortisone shot. This was on Thursday and nothing has helped, what should I do next?
