Well it kind of started over 4 weeks ago with stuffy sinuses but no discharge of thick or yellow snot. Acually the complete opposite it was clear and very little. Doc told me at first it may clear itself and to give it about 14 days and if no improvement come back. He did suggest a saline nasal spray to try and help clear and cleanse. It worked a bit but really all its done is to move it deeper in to the sinuses, head and back towards my ears. I also tried ibuprofen to help reduce the inflamation and pain but it yet again had no real effect.
Just over a week ago went back to the Doc and he gave me 100mg Doxycycline 1 a day. However they made zero effect. So was back again and have now been put on 250mg Clarithromycin twice a day for 10 days. 2 days in very marginaly better. Nose still very dry and stuffy. pressure on the sinuses easesd a little and the headache less. Only other thing is that I have been drinking more water and peeing more (clear). Plus all I seem to smell is ham?
Now I am type 2 diabetic but its under control with blood sugar levels only a tiny bit above normal just now. Had blood checked for kidney function just over a fornight ago and was within normal limits and no significant change from previous results. Blood pressure is doing ok with the varying med I have.
Hoping that this batch of Antibiotics really start to work over the weekend and that I begin to feel near to normal again. Any thoughts more than welcome.
