Since i'm prone to sinus infections i usually just sit there with them however after 2 months of pressure on either side of my forehead above my eyes, decided to ask the doc for abx. Zithro does nothing and really hurts my stomach (like i've been punched in the gut) so he has me on Cephalexin (10 days) which worked last time. Things get COMPLICATED because i have CFS/Fibromyalgia and i'm always "viral" ie flu like symptoms, URI symptoms that wax/wane, etc., those who have it know exactly what i'm talking about.
Anyway, the pressure went away almost immediately but halfway into the course of the abx i noticed that awful infected smell in my nose that i haven't had since probably the last time i had a cold which is in i don't know when, and also a snotty nose. Other than that, i'm not feeling that awful run down feeling that comes with for some reason, a sinus infection.
I'm wondering if i should ask for another course or if this is just a simple URI or a cold? Because ppl with CFS usually don't get colds or flu, they're just kind of constantly waxing and waning with a viral infection (which yes i know, abx would have no effect but it did seem that i had an actual sinus infection) I kind of don't understand the bacterial smell and snot nose that i developed. Any input?
