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

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

Re: Sinus Infection - Chills
the doctor only gave you 5 days of antibiotics? usually minimum of 14 days for a sinus infection

Re: Sinus Infection - Chills
My Sinus Culture came back negative so maybe that is a sign the infectio is finally starting to leave I hope
