Could acute sinusitis include just facial pain, terrible headache /forehead sides &back of head&neck, pain behind eyes, heaviness in head?I've these?

Definitely!: Time to see your doctor if you are experiencing this myriad of symptoms related to your acute sinusitis, so you can get some relief. The sinuses are located behind the cheeks (maxilla), above the eyes (frontal), midline and deep into the back of the nose toward the brain (ethmoid, sphenoid). So, the referred pain pattern as these areas get congested is throughout the head, face, neck. ...Read more

I have acute sinusitis, the dr prescribed augmentin and i took 5 pills, I am allergic to it how long will it remain in my system I am severely sick, dizzy vomiting, lethargic, nausea. I just want to know how long until i may start feeling better. I quit t

Augmentin : Augmentin should be cleared from your system about 6 to 12 hours after taking it. I am concerned that your symptoms may have been from something other than an Augmentin allergy; which is usually characterized by a rash, hives, or in more severe cases shortness of breath. Dizziness, vomiting, lethargy, and nausea sound more like a gastroenteritis or stomach flu. If you are not better by now, you should visit your primary care provider for a follow up visit. Take care. ...Read more
