    I can't get rid of my sinus infection

    After taking antibiotics in October for a sinus infection, it came back and now won't leave. I've still got one more day of antibiotics, but last time I was feeling better by now. This time I'm also taking Mucinex, which helps temporarily, but once it wears off, I'm congested again. I'm sure my immune system is even more messed up since October since I've been on the wrong dose (too low) for 6 months. I'm doing all the steam baths, nasal rinses and drinking water and I don't feel any better. I guess I'll have to wait until I'm done with the antibiotics and call the dr. again. I know these sinus infections are caused by my thyroid being too low. I hate my doctor, she's ruining my life!!!!!

    If you hate your doctor so much, get a new one.

    Also, you might want to consider going to the emergency room. They might very well put you in an inpatient unit and you will probably get a different doctor to look at you.
