sinus infection now for 3 weeks

Posted , 8 users are following.

Came on suddenly when driving - felt I was going to faint I continued to work until I couldn't  went to the dr's a week after the nearly fainting and was told I had a sinus infection - had pains all over my face around my eye by that time - and so dizzy I couldn't walk anywhere. I was put on antibiotics which helped me a lot - however I tried going back to work but was still bad - I got signed off from work and given more antibiotics which I have just run out of. I have I think a "dry sinus" as there doesn't appear to be much mucus coming out. I have been doing salt water rinses and even got a humidifier for in the bedroom to help. taking pain killers however it still hasn't gone after 3 weeks. I'm so fed up of feeling dizzy and tired. how long has it taken people to get over this as I'm not able to function like this sad I've started taking evening primrose oil today hoping that will help

    Is this still active? How's your condition? I've been having similar issues. I think I've got what it is. How much bottled water do you drink.? Or do u drink out of a plastic bottle?
