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?
