: I ended up leaving work today in absolute misery. My teeth were throbbing. It was 3 am when I fell asleep this morning. I saw my DDS at 2 today and he said not only are my teeth most likely abcessed,but he showed me my xray and said my maxillary sinuses are infected. He pointed out the shadows and explained to me what was going on.
: So I got an Rx for antibiotics and he suggested hot towels applied to my face for pain.
: I am forcing fluids and it helps a little but then it drains down my throat and I get nauseous.
: I managed to dust the bedroom today and nearly fainted. Our headboard and footboard were covered in dust. I've been breathing in that junk and it's set me off.
: I will see an allergist soon. I had severe allergies as a child so obviously they are back full force.
: Thx for your input!
Glad I was able to help. The sinusitis problem is something I know all to well. I myself went back to the doctor as the antibiotic I had just finished didn't seem to really do the whole trick with my sinuses. Started one of the newer high power antibiotics yesterday and already I feel like a new person. Please remember though that if you do not feel completely better when they are done with all your treatments and taking care of your teeth to keep pushing till you do feel good. My health care provider has now decided to use the high powered antibiotics every time for my sinusitis since it seems to be the only thing that really works for me. Good Luck with all your treatments.
