I have had so I have had sinus infections on

I have had so I have had sinus infections on and off most of my life triggered my weather change and humidity. And all of the specialists I have been to tell me I have a deviated septum but not a candidate for surgery. I am now 70 years old and after all these years of dealing with this problem, the only drug that cures my infections is Levofloxacin. Can you tell me if there are other antibiotics similar to Levofloxacin that I can take or what is in that drug that works while other antibiotics no longer work.

I am confident I have a sinus infection, but I live out of a metro area and cannot reach my doctor. I was recently treated for an upper respiratory infection with a z pack and cough medicine which has improved; however, I awoke two days ago with pain in my neck that has now settled in my head, behind my eyes. The pain is such that I have severe nausea and am dizzy.

i WAS DIAGNOSED WITH BRONCHITIS IN OCTOBER. GIVEN BIAXIN 3 MONTHS LATER. REALLY WEAKENED ME. STARTED TO FEEL BETTER THAN WORSE. EXTREME THICK CONGESTION IN RESPIRATORY TRACT. SOMEHOW I SEEM TO HAVE DEVELOPED ASTHMA AND FEEL QUITE ILL. I AM REALLY FRIGHTENED FIVE MONTHS LATER. I CAN T TAKE ESPECIALLYTHE ZEN HALE. NASONEX REACTIONS. TRIED GELOMYRTOL FOR AS LONG AS i COULD BEAR IT AS IT DID PUSH SOME OF THE PHLEGM OUT. I KNOW THAT THERE ARE A LOT OF LONG TERMS VIRUSES GOING AROUND THIS YEAR BUT IN SPITE OF MANY ATTEMPTS TO GET RID OF THIS THICK CONGESTION I AM REALLY ILL. ALSO, I HAD A TETANUS/WHOOPING COUGH/ DIPHTHERIA VACCINATION ABOUT A MONTH BEFORE ALL OF THIS WHICH I FOOLISHLY ALLOWED. I HAVE FOUND OUT SINCE THIS CAN TRIGGER ASTHMA? I STARTED TO DO A COLON CLEANSED FOR ABOUT A WEEK THEN STOPPED. TAKING A GOOD MULTIVITAMIN, -- SEEN BY STUDENTS OVERSEEN BY DOCTORS IN BETWEEN (TEACHING HOSPITAL) MY GP LAUGHED WHEN I FINALLY GOT A SECOND APPOINTMENT WITH HER AND TALKED ABOUT A CULTURE TEST AN IE OF HER ATTITUDE. ONLY SAW HER TWICE AS SHE WANTED TO PUT ME ON ANOTHER ANTIBIOTIC BECAUSE I WAS SICK FOR SO LONG AND HAVE A HISTORY OF SINUS PROBLEMS. BUT THIS DOESN T SEEM LIKE A TYPICAL SINUS INFECTION AS IT HURTS THEN STOPS JUST LIKE MY EARS ETC.

Hello, I have been sick for about three weeks with a respiratory/sinus infection and have been on an antibiotic for 5 days now but my main issue is that I have been suffering with the chills for over a month, sometimes every day, at any time of the day. My concern is that I have smoldering myeloma and have had ovarian cancer of which was surgically removed in 2010 and I do recall having the chills pop up every once in while since 2007 of which, was the year I found out that I had MGUS and pre-diabetic. My MGUS has progressed to Smoldering Myeloma and seems to be stable. Should I be worried?
