    Hi Kadia,

    Sorry you're not feeling well.

    I am having similar issues. Ears feel blocked, bad sinus pain, some tinnitus and headaches that move around my head and behind my right eye. This last symptom has been the most painful and frightening one for me. I don't have jaw pain as such but heard that is common.

    Doctor hasn't even seen me but prescribed me 5 days of amoxicillin over the phone. Hope they work for both of us.

    Hello to both of you!! Hope you guys are doing better. Any suggestions on what worked please?! 😃

    I am currently having very similar symptoms. I've been on amoxicillin since 10 days with some improvement. Still getting blocked ears once every couple of days.
