Sinus infection also called sinusitis, is inflammation of the paranasal sinuses that may occur when having an infection, allergy or autoimmune issues. Discuss topics including causes, symptoms and treatments for sinusitis.
Several weeks ago, I had a viral infection - cold, runny nose, basically a cold ... that went into an ear infection and small sinus infection. Took Augmentum, felt a little better until about a week and a half ago. Started having nausea, and feeling off balance. My right cheek bone and uppe right teeth were having a lot of pressure and at times they feel as though novicane is wearing off after you get your teeth worked on - sort of numb. However, throught the numbness feeling, I could still still make facial expressions, nothing is drooping or anything like that. The pressure will sometimes start in the temple area, move along the right jaw line to the cheek bone. Just on the right side. Left side is fine - which is funny because the left side is where my ear infection was, not the right...
There is not always alot of pain - just a slight headache and pressure. Anyway, just frustrated of having a slight headache and pressure on the right side of my face for a week and a half and tired of the nausea and off balance feeling. Any advice would be GREAT!
Sidenote: Did go to doctor about 5 days ago and she sent me for an MRI - scheduled for later this week - praying it is nothing. AND - no I am not pregnant - so not worried about nausea being from that.
How are you? How was your MRI results? It is possible that the symptoms you mentioned last time were due to the sinus and ear infection at that time. However, the MRI would definitely help rule out other pathology. Take care and do keep us posted.
