Nauseous, headache, achy all over, terrible ear pain. Saw pcp. Said sinus infection. Symptoms for 2 weeks. Meningitis?no fever no vomiting

Meningitis : Unlikely meningitis. Meningitis is usually viral or bacterial. Sensitivity to light, fever, chills, severe headache, and neck stiffness are classic signs. A lumbar puncture and analysis of the cerebrospinal fluid will help make the diagnosis. Your primary medical doctor may refer you to a neurologist or neurosurgeon for evaluation if the sinusitis does not resolve with treatment. ...Read more

Past few days pain/pressure behind eyes, nausea, chills, sweats, bodyaches, swollen glands back of head bactrimds for impetigo. Flu shot sept. Ideas?

Flu or sinus?: Pain behind your eyes is typical for a sinus infection. The nausea, sweats, chills and body aches could be signs of a bacterial or viral infection, including the flu or mono. The flu shot protects 50-70% of healthy adults, so you can still get the flu, which is a virus. If it's a bacterial infection of your sinuses, Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) likely isn't enough. Make sure your doc knows how bad you're feeling! ...Read more

Bad sinus infection for three wks despite antibiotic shot. Bright yellow mucus in nose, headache, dizzy, sleepy, facial pain. Sinus brain infection??

Daily meds: It depends on how often this occurs, but it sounds like you may need to be on a daily medicine to prevent these headaches. You should also try to eliminate the common headache triggers if you haven't already tried that. And maintain a headache diary to try to identify any potential triggers. Good luck. ...Read more

Taking bactrimds for impetigo. Few days ago pain/press. Behind eyes, nausea, swollen glands back of head, fever, bodyaches, flu shot in sept. Ideas?

Sinus infection?: Pain behind your eyes is typical for a sinus infection. The nausea, sweats, chills and body aches could be signs of a bacterial or viral infection, including the flu or mono. The flu shot protects 50-70% of healthy adults, so you can still get the flu, which is a virus.

Postdromal migraine or brain tumor? Mild pain on left side of head, ringing ears, ear fullness and dizziness for 4 days after week long migraine.

How about neither?: There seems to be an inexplicable epidemic of brain tumor anxiety among otherwise young healthy people. Like that furshlugginer ice bucket challenge that had the unintended consequence of an epidemic of ALS anxiety among otherwise healthy young people. - This may have been a viral infection that spread to your middle & inner ear. If it persists more than a few more days, see your doctor. ...Read more

Sinus infection following cold. Day 2 of antibiotics (4 doses augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) so far) felt better, now feel worse with back ache and worsening headache?

Headaches and face numbness; sinus infection or migraines?

Magnesium Deficiency: Fine tune you wellness program with vits minerals, stretching yoga and massage. A good deep tissue specialist will unlock your neck, shoulders and jaws to turn off the headache triggers. Acupuncture is my treatment of choice. Magnesium glycinate as in kal branded is one of the best. Epsoms salts soaking is a great way to peace and quiet. Stay away from opiates, soma, (carisoprodol) ultram and butalbital. ...Read more

Bad bladder infect. (Bactrim) headache excruciating pain lightheaded fever chills/shaking no appetite Tylenol (acetaminophen) hurts ulcers no energy. Nauseabed 2 days?

Be careful: If you aren't feeling better soon after taking the bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) seek a re-evaluation. It's possible that the urinary tract infection is caused by a bacteria resistant to Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) or worse that the bacteria has gotten into your blood stream. Again, have a low threshold to seek a re-evaluation, even if that means having to go to the ER. ...Read more

See answer: Only concerned in that your newest symptoms may represent a third type of infection in a relatively short time. Immune system suppressed? Number of potential causes of current symptoms with perhaps viral infection being most likely in which case should be self-limiting. If symptoms persist or worsen, need md evaluation again. ...Read more

Cold? Influenza?: It sounds like you caught a regular cold virus, or maybe influenza (it's early, but flu season is starting). Anyway, these symptoms prorbably have nothing to do with Helicobacter pylori or the antibiotics. If in doubt, discuss with the doctor treating you. Good luck! ...Read more
