I've been having ear pressure/clogged ears including a headache for like 2 weeks now and I'm completely lost after showing up to many doctors and my Mid year exams are on the edge. I'll tell the entire story of how it began and till now including what I've been taking as prescribed by doctors. In the couple few days of November (this year of course) I started to feel a bit of dry ache in my throat after giving a test in high school, I thought it was just that I was dehydrated but a day afterwards I got stuffy nose and all those symptoms of a normal cold, the cold kinda went off but I eventually felt a head pressure which caused me to feel restless and less efficient at school so I decided to show up to a doctor (ENT) who said it's some allergy so he prescribed me three medicines 1. Fexet-D (Fexofenadine 60mg, Pseudoephedrine 120mg), 2. Alcabel tablet (lornoxicam 4mg) 3. Conzyme tablet 5mg for 4-5 days. I followed that course, it felt to get a bit better first but then after completing the course my head pressure and clogged ears persisted. I thought it may go away in a few days but it didn't and it seemed to me the doc didn't know my condition well so I went to another doctor who told me it's most probably an allergy, sinusitis due to the dry weather and pollen/dust so prescribed me a single medicine Loratadine antihistamine and told me I should take caution when going outside and wear a surgical mask including take NaCl nasal drops. I followed the antihistamine for a day but I felt panic attacks which I thought was due to that medicine so left it out..I felt I got a bit better days afterwards but again the headache and clogged ears came. I was truly frustrated as it was killing my productivity and I couldn't study in it. I relayed on home remedies until I decided to check with a more experienced doctor, An ENT specialist and a head of a medical institution. I showed him what I've been taking, he ordered me to take an sinus xray, and audiometry. He said it may be due that previous medicines that my condition got a bit worse, he examined the xray and said my sinus are blocked which is causing the head ache and ear pressure. He gave me antibiotics Velosef (Cefradine 500mg), Dolonap (Naproxen 500mg) and anticongestant (Rhine sone p) for 5-7 days and said if these medicines don't work then in extreme case we need to do a surgery..I was shocked and scared. After taking these medicines for a few days I thought I was getting better until I went back to school where my ears and head started to hurt again like if there is and pressure in it. I called the doctor overnight and gave me a combination of more medicines. Chymotrypsin and Cetrizine and said that he's giving me more medicines to try best to treat it without surgery, I got scared more because I never had such a surgery and I'm like 18 years old..with surgery there's a possibility I can get more problems like brain infection etc and if something happens with my brain my entire life is worthless being a student with dreams of success (going to study in abroad University). I didn't take the last medicines the doc told me till yet because I'm scared taking so many medicines till now may have a really bad effect on my body including my immune system. I feel like a bit crying cause my health have been going so well until November showed up and I'm all like this which is preventing me to study hard for my upcoming exams. I'm completely lost and despaired, I don't know what shall I do, take the medicines till it gets well, do nothing, surgery but in all cases my time is short as I have exams to study for and Im unable to do that efficiently. Please help me out
