sinus headache over eyes and forehead,no nasal discharge,no fever,chills,dizzy

My doc thinks I may have a bad sinus infection caused by impaction or something.Dizziness,occasional headache,tired, fatigue,eyes feel heavy,started saline nasal wash and felt better,then doc had me take,875 augmentin and It has helped,but it does mess with you stomach.Does anyone know if augmentin takes awhile to get really kicking in and do these symptoms seem like a sinus issue?????

I think your Dr. is on the right track. You should notice improvement within a few days. If symptoms persist, a sinus CT, and a course of prednisone may be a good idea. If the antibiotics give you the runs, eat a cup of yogurt every day. This will replace the "good" bacteria (which help your bowel function) that the antibiotics destroy.

I have had bad sinuses since dec. swollen glands, tired, fatique, bad ear pain, sore throat. I antiobiotics and it did not help. Went to specialist and had a ct scan done. My sinuses he said are bad to a point surgery is recommened. The nasal spray helps but once I stop it comes right back but if I keep using the nasal spray then I get nose bleeds. It is always constantly there some days worse like today. i was also told that if you smoke when you have bad sinuses that is not good for you.

Have you been checked for allergies?  I get the same thing every spring.  Bad sinus headache but nothing else.

I have some strange sinus symptoms.  I have headaches, sinus pressure above the eyebrows, soreness and pain around the eye sockets, and then a strange occurrence at least once a day.  I have dry eyes, but I start yawning and continue to yawn and then my eyes begin to pour....I have not nasal drainage and I am not stopped up, but I can feel a drainage down my throat sometimes.  I have such pressure in the areas mentioned.  Do I have an infection even though I have no discharge?

my 5 year old has very bad nasal congestion but with no discharge whatsoever. in the last two weeks she has caught a cold/flu twice and has had very high temps (103+). the fever is relentless and has been going on for 6 days now. we've been to the doc's twice - she just said give tylenol/motrin. we went again today and they did x-rays to see if it was pneumonia (came negative). she's currently taking nasal spray for possible dust allergy but it has had hardly any affect on the congestion. the doctor admitted she's just fishing because she's not sure what's causing the fever. she also prescribed antibiotics but this will be the third round in 3 months (2nd round was for chronic cough which has now been linked to poss allergies). does anyone have any knowledge of actute nasal congestion with no discharge because i think it may be linked to my daughters's fever?

Have you taken her to a pediatric allergist? If not you should. Her dr can refer you to one. I recently took my 4 year old son in fear of a soy allergy. They tested him for about 28 different things ranging from pets,trees,grass and various foods. Turns out he is not allergic to soy, but rather to tree grass,ragweed,dog and cat dander and slightly to wheat!  But now we know precisely how to treat them. He often sounds real nasally when he talks, but no drainage and he recently had his first headache. He also has patches of eczema from time to time.

Hi. I have been suffering for years from sinus pressure/headaches.  It just so happens that I live in the wrong state for allergies/sinus problems.  This state is one of the worse, because of all the flowers/trees/etc. Anyway, I've had allergy tests and am not really allergic to anything.  When I have bad sinus problems, my head has a small throbbing/pain around my temples and behind my eyes... my nasal passage feels tight (full of pressure).  My sinuses never drain... they are just super dry. Sometimes my jaw/teeth line has a little pain in them... but mainly headaches.  My left nasal and left side of my body is usually what's affected. It stinks living with this.  Can chronic sinus problems clog your lymph nodes around you neck area and above left armpit.  My lymph nodes feel sore every time my sinuses get worse. I wear contacts, too, so I think it makes my eyes even more dried out and my headaches worse.  I've been going to my chiropractor and massage therapist a lot lately, but the pain is only relieved temporarily.  When my sinuses are really bothering me, I feel dizzy, too.  What doctor's don't tell you is that sometimes it can take up to 6 weeks of antibiotics to clear up a bad sinus infection. My primary physician usually will only prescribe 10 days of antibiotics (even though I've told him otherwise).  What should I do to relieve these symptoms for good.  The nasal sprays don't work... they just run down the back of my throat when I spray them in my nasal passage (which in return makes my throat a little sore).  Any suggestions out there?  I wonder if I should be talking to an ENT doctor about the possibility of nasal surgery to clear up for good... or atleast help ALOT.

I think you should absolutely be seeing an ENT specialist.  I have had (hopefully in the past now) the exact same thing you are going through for the past 5 years.  I have minor allergies (which I do shots for now), but most of my problems have been anatomical.  My sinuses were inflammed causing the pressure, headaches and infections.  I recently had a full sinus surgery and tonsillectomy.  

Your ENT will order a CT scan and you will go from there.  Please make sure you have a good ENT (with recommendations from other surgery patients) because there is a difference in surgeons and which sinuses they will or won't operate on and their experience level.  I have learned this the hard way, this last sinus surgery was my 3rd because my previous Dr didn't go to all the sinuses.

I hope this helps and good luck!

If anyone is having severe problems, you should be seeing an ENT specialist.  Don't rely on your primary care doctor.

I believe that the current accepted protocol for anbtibiotics for sinus infection is Augmentin XR.  Two in the morning and two in the evening for 10-14 days.  I believe. that comes out to be about 4 grams a day!!  If you are using 875mg, it may not be enough.  The sinuses have poor blood supply and need quite a strong dose for an extended period (not to mention the stronger bugs we're seeing these days).

In my opinion, if your doctor doesn't know this, then find another one!

Hope this helps,

I'm wondering if anyone else has my undiagnosed sinus problems, relating to food intollerances? I've determined that yeast, alcohol, and fruit will set me off the NEXT morning. It now appears other offending foods/airborne particles are becoming an issue. I get my discomfort as soon as I wake up in the morning and start moving around. My eyes get so droppy as the day goes on along with pressure all above my neck. I need to nap for anywhere between 2-3 hrs. to have some releif. I'm never fully better until the next day, so typically my symptoms last 24 hrs. Just a crumb of the offending food/drink will set me off. My ENT says I do have allergies, after looking into my nose, but post nasal drip doesn't occur on these days I feel lousy. There is no over the counter meds I have found as of yet and continue to seek holistic care.
Any words of wisom are welcomed. Thank you! Julie in Massachusetts

I had a CT scan and they found Maxillary sinus mucus retention cyst on both sides of the sinus. Augmenten and axithromycin werent working. Now i am on prednisone per my ENT doc. Seems to be helping so far.

Sometimes I feel like the doctor just isn't listening to all my symptoms...I have a headache daily, my nose is very sensitive, it hurts just to breathe through it.  All the material I have read on about allergies, is that nasal congestion, or runny nose are always present. In my case, there is neither. My headaches seem to be in the sinus region, just that it's all of them, forehead, temples, and cheeks.  I had an ear infection, which anitbiotics were prescribed, and ALL of the symptoms were gone, but 3 weeks later I was having trouble again. I am at the end of my rope, I just want relief. He says I have allergies and probably should quit my job since there is smoking in my office. It's a good job, but I may have to. I just want this to all stop...seems like the doctors just give a bunch of stuff to try and hope for the best.

I am currently suffering from the symptoms you describe benmooch.

Pain in sinuses beside nose, below eye, above eye, and temple (all on left side), pain in upper pallet below sinus region, also there is pain when breathing in /out through nose, or mouth. The membranes are DRY - SOOOO dry, it feels like a dry river bed.

I get these symptoms whenever mold is high, or in recent years when there is a high pollen count of some plant or other - does not seem to matter what  - just that it is high, I take Tylenol to reduce the thickness of the blood being forced around those areas, also I find a steam bowl helps to ease the dryness (I know it's not too practical at work - but a humidifier by your work area might help), I am unable to take allergy meds as they put me to sleep.

You might have your house checked for mold, or see if there is a web page that describes the pollen count in your area - if it is at work, there may be a med that helps - guess everyone is different in their reaction.

But, I feel your pain - literally. It is the MOST miserable time. I have also taken a UK over the counter called Anadin Extra Strong, which is an aspirin and paracetamol mix, this usually turns the pain OFF in about 15 min. I can tell the symptoms are still there, vaguely, but the pain is GONE. Unfortunately for this current bout I have run out...the attacks usually last about 3-4 days, then I am just left with a bruised feeling in the affected areas for another day.

I am in my second day...

Many don't realize that all the symptoms you are having are due to Candida infection. Look it up and you will find the answer you are looking for, antibiotics make this problem worse.
