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
