I came down with a serious upper respiratory virus. The sinus pressure causes really awful migraines. I know its not recommended, but i find taking sudafed to drain the sinuses is better than having sinus pressure. I unfortunately missed 3 days of work from this combination of sickness and migraines. I had to get a doctors note and without insurance that little visit cost me $90. But at least they gave me some lidocaine so I don't have to feel my bloody raw throat. But I REALLY don't have the money to spare, especially since I missed three days of work.
