sinus infection/ fluid in the inner ear
 
I was not feeling good last week and knew I had a sinus infection. It is very common for me to get the 6-8 times a year. This time it is different. I can not hear out of my right ear. I went to the doctor Friday to have it checked out. He said there is fluid in my ear. He put me on Allegra D-12 hour, Amoxacillin, and Fluticasone Prpionate. He said I should feel better within 24 hours. Today is Monday and well now I feel like I am getting worse. I am coughing now and can not sleep for more that 3 hours a night. I have had a rough weekend with hardly any sleep and now I have to go the whole week like this. I can still not hear out of my right ear and now I have a rough hacking cough that kills my chest.
Any advise for me?

I went back to the doctor today he put me on cough syrup with codine, and told me that the fluid in my ear is not gonna go anywhere, becuase the passage way is swollen. He told me to take 2 IbProphens 4 times a day to get the swelling down. I am thinking they are playing guessing games with me. Do you think I should get a second medical decision?
