    Mild maxillary sinus disease on MRI

    About 2 months ago I had an MRI done because I was having dizziness and eye pain. Later on we found out I'm anemic so I've been taking iron and the dizziness has gone away. However, the MRI showed mild maxillary sinus disease even though I had no symptoms of a sinus congestion or headaches. When I followed up with my doctor afterwards she offered to prescribe me antibiotics for it. She didn't think they were super necessary and was basically like "I can treat it if you want". I picked up the antibiotics but haven't taken them because they always give me bad reactions. I really try not to take antibiotics unless it's super necessary. However, I know I have a poor immune system and I get scared that the sinus infection could spread (my sister almost died of meningitis when we were younger so I've always had this irrational fear of it). I've been sick the past few days with a low grade fever and flu like symptoms that my boyfriend passed on to me and I've been getting rid of a TON of green colored mucus. The fever has gone down now and the discharge and dropping is less. Should I take these antibiotics or are they really not necessary?
