I don't understand: You were diagnosed in November and given a prescription (probably antibiotic). it's now April and you still have symptoms, and the antibiotic stopped working as soon as you ran out of pills. Why haven't you called your Physician to report your symptoms? Please do so, or see an ENT specialist. "Waiting it out," "Maybe it will go away" isn't working. Seek help.
