Sinus infection now chest and cough...

He friends,

I thought I had a cold because I had pressure in my sinuses and a sore throat. So i did not go to the doctor until I got dizzy fatigued and just out of it feeling sooo yucky. When I went He told me I had a sinus infection and it traveled to my ears and my ears were filled with fluid. So He put on an antibiotic a very strong one that made me vomit so he switched me to another antibiotic.

I have been on the antibiotic only for a couple of days. Well tonight my chest started hurting and all of a sudden when I breath at all I have this dry cough. I would have thought since I was on the antibiotic I would be over with these infections. This is very strange from a major sinus infection now to chest pain and a cough every time I breath. I do not feel any mucus in my lings so it is all weird to me.

Does anyone know what this might be?

Re: Sinus infection now chest and cough...

It's not unusual for the sinus infection to spread to your chest--usually it is because of the post nasal drip you get with the sinus infection. It goes down into your chest.

I have a Sinus infection now, also--a bad one--went to the doctor's twice now and am on second round of antibiotics. First antibiotic didn't work well for me, perhaps that was your situation also.

I am sorry you are feeling so rotten and hope you feel better soon!!!
