Rx Doxycycline for Sinus Infection. Stopped after Side effects (pulsatile tinnitus). It’s been 3 weeks, pulsatile tinnitus not gone. Permanent?
Probably not doxy: Doxycycline is not a likely cause. More likely a coincidence that it started while taking the drug, especially since it has continued this long. If one of your sinuses is plugged and filled with fluid, that could result in pulsatile tinnitus by increasing transmission of blood flow sound in an artery. Discuss with your doctor, including if other tests are indicated. ...Read more

I have had acute sinus infection for 9 days was on levaquin (levofloxacin) 750mg for 10 days. Just finished them but still have facial pain on one side, no congestio?

I suspect that your facial pain is likely from something else. Check with your doctor or get a 2nd opinion. ...Read more

I'm getting a sinus infection on left side and suddenly started getting sharp shooting pains in my left shoulder n down back of left arm.
Sinusitis: If, in fact, you actually have sinusitis, there should not be any relationship with pain into your shoulder unless you are are developing one of the infrequent but severe complications of this illness.
