I have been sick for over a month. I went to the walk-in clinic last Mon and the doc told me I have a sinus infection.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/sneeze.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Sneeze">: I suspected that's what it was but had hoped that it would get better on it's own. She said that it was one of the worst sinus infections she has seen in a while so she put me on 4 wks of antibiotics instead of the normal 10 days. So I have been on antibiotics for almost a week along with Mucinex, which she recommended and I still don't fell any better. My eyes hurt soooooo bad because of the pressure in my sinuses.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I have been laying on the floor all evening in tears. I have taken something for pain but it's not helping.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying">

I would rather send you a big horse radish. Maybe you could get one and grate it and little by little eat it. It really clears up sinus infections.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

Sorry to hear you are so miserable!<br><br>
Have you tried sinus irrigation? You can buy solutions and pots at a drug store or make your own solution. The Ear, Nose, and Throat docs that I know who specialize in sinus surgeries recommend these to their patients as ways to feel better during an infection and to avoid getting an infection. I've used them myself (it took a bit of getting used to), and it really helped.<br><br>
Hope you get some relief soon. Here's some healing vibes: <span>~~~~~~~~~~</span><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
