My sinus infection, WILL NOT GO AWAY!! :-(
I have had it for a little over 2 months now. I had a ct scan and the
results came back normal. I still have alot of drainage in my throat and alot of pain that's on my right side Jaw area.
I have tried: Amoxicillian (the pink liquid stuff) Augmentin (the white liquid
stuff) levaquin (comes only in pill form) and now I'm taking sulfamethoxazole
( It's also called septra) in liquid form. I was on the Amoxicillian for 2 weeks (14 days) and the Augmentin for 10 days and the levaquin for 2 days (I had to stop taking it because I got bad stomach pains) and now I have been on
sulfamethoxazole for 7 days now.
you would think by now that my sinus infection would be gone.
oh and I'm also taking Nasonex (nasal spray) once a day.
do you think that I would need to have my sinus's cleaned out by a ENT doctor?? I have an appointment on May 25th to see one.
I just want all of this pain to stop, I have enough to worry about with my nerve pain. Kim
