Sinus congestion and inflammation

I ve had bad sinus congestion and inflammation on my right cheek and a sinus headache. I have taken allergy med. and it has helped. However for the past 3 days I have been very fatigued, and weak and shaky with activity. I occasionally feel my heart flutter when I m up moving around.

Hi,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum,
Are you still continuing the medicines for your sinus and allergy problem? If so then the antihistaminics what you are taking can cause you these symptoms. Best is to stop the medicine and consult your ENT specialist.
Take care

I have a regular doctor for the past month I have had a chronic cough with minimal sputum production, my sinuses feel inflamed with increased congestion, when I cough the mucus just reaches the back of my throat and will not move up or down and efforts to expectorate are unsuccessful, eventually I feel I need to blow my nose and that eliminates the feeling in the back of my throat. some days are worse than others. my nose, throat and trachea feel dry and irritated all the time, this does not pose a problem during sleep, but I take zolpidem at bedtime. I am a smoker. should I contact my doctor or wait for my regular appointment in juhw

I have been fighting off what I at first thought was simply a bad cold. but after a week and some high fevers and bad congestion I think may have been a more serious sinusitis or something similar. My actual question for the last 3 or 4 days my face has been basically permanently flushed and feels warm (sometimes hot) to the touch. I ve never had this happen before and I m not sure if it s something to be concerned about or would be normal for what I ve been sick with.

My nasal passages seem to swell (esp on right side) at night, when thermostat is at 70 degrees or more (heat), when around smoke or certain chemicals/fabrics. They clear when I am upright for awhile, take decongestants or am in a cooler environment. When passages swell it is as if someone has stuffed cotton in them and I have major problems breathing and even talking. I am 67 and have had sinus problems for many years. Currently sinuses feel inflammed. Am I treating this correctly or do I need to see a physician? Thank you Mickey

I am 5 10 , 195 lbs, 24 years old male.... So sunday night I was getting a scratchy throat, but I was not worried, woke up next morning and had a sore throat, went to work it was manageable, asked fellow employees why my throat was only sore on one side. Monday night I started to get cold chills and a fever..Went to bed and woke up next morning with an even worse sore throat on my right side only. I was tired and had body aches, so I thought it was the flu or something, took some pain killers and went to work, Tuesday evening at work I was getting even more cold chills the night before , so I went home early and took a hot bath to warm me up, some tylenol and tried to sleep. Wednesday morning, same routine, right side of throat hurts even worse, where I can barely swallow liquids with out my throat hurting. So I took some thera-flu the prescribed dosage and continue to take it but still no results, but I happened to look in the mirror with a flashlight right next to my right tonsil it looks as if it got infected and there was white stuff stuck in there. I tried to remove it with a q-tip but was unsuccessful, not only did it hurt but it felt as if it was stuck in. Thursday I went to a doctor and she said I have some sort of pharyngitis, pre scribed me some amoxicillin and asked if I have post nasal drip, not that I know of.... But I have been following the directions and still now it is friday woke up pain in my throat on my right side only and I havent any real food since sunday... Am I not giving the amoxicillin enough time, if not if my throat continues to be in pain what s next?

My 20 year old daughter was recently on 1 week of Augmentin for flu like symptoms, with a fever ranging from 103-100+ for 5 days (fever broke and has stayed down since last Friday). She finished the antibiotics on Sunday and has since developed a rash that began on her hands and feet and has continued to spread to her arm and legs. It is not blister like nor is it on her torso or face. It does itch and over the counter cortisone cream isn t helping Could this be an allergic reaction? or due to the fever? Thanks in advance for your help! She had taken a Z pack before the augmentin

I did not eat 2 or 3 days then I met my family doctor after a very long period, he advised to meet an asthma specialist and he also suggested that I may have phlum in my lungs etc.
