So all last week I felt bad due to my allergies flaring up bc of the high pollen levels we have been under. Then over the weekend it hit me really hard and I knew that my allergies were turning in to a sinus infection. Now i have had sinus infections before and they suck but NEVER have I had something like this.
Monday I went to the doctor and they put me on antibiotics and told me to continue to take OTC meds for Sinus Headaches for the next couple days till the infection started clearing and I started to feel better.
I have had the antibiotics in my system for 3 days and I feel worse with each passing day. I feel 10 times worse than when I saw the doctor on monday (and trust me I felt bad then bc i HATE seeing the dr)
The pain in my head is so severe All I really want to do is lay down and cry. My head hurts, my eyes hurt, I am having an extreme amount of jaw pain… it literally feels like someone is trying to push my teeth out of my head from the root….. my ears hurt my neck hurts back behind my ears.. It feels like my cheeks are about to explode.. anytime i move suddenly or look down it literally feels like my brain is about to come exploding out my eyes and my ears and forehead.
I have had severe nasuea & some stomach pain (it is more of a burning sensation in my stomach) … this happens about 20 mins or so after I take my antibiotics and usually results in me throwing up several times (after this my stomach feels better and my nasuea goes away till i take my 2nd dose of meds and this happens all over again.
Yesterday I started noticing alot of blood in my mucous on one side of my nose… today it has turned into nothing but blood it looks like pure blood clots coming out that side of my nose.(which is actually the side of my face that has the more severe pain)
I called the doctors office back today and told them all of my problems and how everything seems to be getting worse and I think the antibiotic is making me sicker. Pretty much she just told me that is a common side effect with antibiotics and not to take them on an empty stomach and perhaps try drinking a glass of milk prior to taking them. (this doesnt help exp since milk makes me feel bad itself & i was taking it with food) She also recommended eating yogurt for the probotics. And said it was normal to experience some headaches & pressure with sinus problems.
I AM NOT USUALLY A BABY ABOUT THINGS. I HAVE BEEN THROUGH ALOT OF SO CALLED PAINFUL THINGS IN MY LIFE WITH NO PROBLEMS (c-section, knee surgery, wisdom teeth out, broken bones etc) All without the need for pain killers after the inital surgeries bc my pain tolerance is pretty high. BUT THIS FEELS UNBEARABLE to me All i can do is cry. It hurts to eat, it hurts to talk, it hurts to move my face, I cant sleep at night bc I am in so much pain. I feel worse and worse everyday NOTHING IS HELPING??? Typically by now I would be feeling alot better… not worse!
It is making me so mad that the nurse just thinks this is normal. How can this much pain be normal? I don’t know what to do to help it but I need to feel better. I have had to work everyday like this and it has been terrible
Has anyone experienced this before?
