Sinus Infection that won't go away?
HELP! I am so tired of feeling like this and I need help. Any answers would be great.
It started as what felt like a cold in the beginning of September. I took some normal cold medicines and went on my way. I was flying to Seattle that weekend from Florida and did not want to be sick so I tried every medicine. Nothing seemed to help. I was very nauseous and throwing up almost everyday. It was still awful when I returned to Florida so I went to a walk-in urgent care center to get some relief. The doctor put me on a z-pack and I was on my way. I finished the medicine and felt better for a day or so but then it started back.
I have terrible allergies and have to get an allergy shot every week so during my weekly visit, I met with my allergist (this is now two weeks after the initial sickness started). She diagnosed me with a bad sinus infection and put me on Amoxicillin for 20 days. She said being on the plane and the altitude made this infection worse. Once I started the medicine, I started getting a bad headache. This headache has not gone away since. I finished the Rx and still had the post-nasal drip, headache (which feels like pressure in my head and the front hurts), along with my jaw and ears. I woke up last Monday with pain in my neck. I thought maybe it was because I was painting all weekend and my neck was hurting from that but it's still there. It is located right on the spine of my neck. My shoulders are starting to hurt too now and it is starting to travel down my back. My headache is still there. It has not changed AT ALL. I wake up with it and go to sleep with it.. it is constant.. it hasn't let up or gotten worse.. the same every day.
I am not sure if I should see an ENT or go to the hospital. Could it still be a sinus infection causing all of these problems or something more? I am terrified of getting Meningitis.. could it be that? I don't have a fever and haven't the entire time this has been going on. My vision also seems to be getting worse (I also have a lazy eye so it could be that.. but it is definitely worse).
I just want some suggestions and help. PLEASE! I am so tired of this. It has been almost 2 months. HELP!
