    Sinus Infection - Chills

    I have had a sinus infection for 2 months. have been treated for 30 days. They just switched me to a different antiobiotic as I still have it. Also told me to take Probiotics for good bacteria

    Can you get chills from a Sinus Infection
    I have the congestion with and without some blood
    sore throat

    Any opinion as I am getting nervous and I am going away
    tomorrow

    I am on Bactrim twice a day 5 days and I do the neti pot with Neil Med 2 to 3 times a day I feel a little better but still yellow mucous and some blood. Not as much chills but still some fatigue. My CT scan came back infection on both sides of the siuses

    the doctor only gave you 5 days of antibiotics? usually minimum of 14 days for a sinus infection
