: I wonder if they took any sinus x-rays to be sure that your sinus infection completely cleared up with the antibiotic. It sort of sounds to me like the antibiotic didn't quite take care of it all since you had the severe congestion after finishing it. The MRI will show whether it worked or not but it would have been easier to just get a set of sinus x-rays if they didn't do this yet. Good luck and hopefully it is all something minor.
Thank you for your post and interest. No sinus x-rays were taken. My MRI is scheduled for Wednesday, May 10 (tomorrow). I figure since I saw the "specialist" (ENT), the MRI is used when the hearing test comes back with deficiencies and he wants to "rule out the worst" as it goes.
Let's see what happens tomorrow. That would be great if it's minor!
