Good chance: After nine days and with the facial pain developing, it is certainly possible that you have a sinus infection. Even so, it is still possibly viral if you are a non-smoker. I would see your doctor or urgent care tomorrow and in the meantime, try the neti-pot or nasal saline spray, ibuprofen and dayquil/nyquil. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Cough, sinus infection, blood in back of throat, lump on side of neck, fluid in ear, going on 3 weeks, seen 2 docs, just finished omniflex, no better?
ENT: You might try a decongestant, and saline nasal irrigation with a neti-pot. This sounds like it may be viral or allergic, but without seeing you there is no way in which to know. It has been long enough to warrant a third opinion if you have not yet been seen by an ENT specialist. Go and be seen, diagnosed and managed appropriately. ...Read more

I thought I had a sinus infection now I'm wondering if it's something more. I am coughing so much it is hard to breathe. Very dry wezzy cough.
Get checked.: Since you are getting worse and wheezing, it's time to get checked. Stop over the counter cough, cold and sinus meds because they are of no proven benefit and can dry out your mucus and make it thick and so harder to cough up. Try Vick's nasal inhaler to open nose and blow it, don't sniff. Chloraseptic or Cepastat can numb the feeling of the mucus dripping in back of throat, which causes cough. ...Read more

When went to the doctor today he said I had a sinus infection. It hurts my chest when I cough. Is that normal?
2 related symptoms: Sinus infections are usually viral at the beginning. The fact that your chest hurts when you cough is most likely muscle tenderness caused by the coughing. Although the sinus symptoms (pain in the face, yellow nasal drainage) do not cause the cough, they are probably related to the same viral infection. Also, sinusitis can lead to excessive PND and that may lead to your cough. ...Read more
After a sinus infection with mild cough. Now I have pain in my right lower back when moving or doing certain postures?
Sinus infection & phlegmy cough, was put on Zithromax. Finished that a week ago, but still have the cough, feel better otherwise. Should I worry?
When I cough, I get a sharp pain in the right side of my brain, the cough has been persistent for over 1 week. Had a bad sinus infection before then.
Not really: You cannot have a pain in your brain because the brain is completely insensitive to pain. Sinuses are outside your skull; brain is inside. And there are no sinuses on the sides of your head. Whatever the pain is, it probably has nothing to do with either your brain or your sinuses. ...Read more

The cough reflex is a protective mechanism that uses muscles in your throat and chest to expel mucous and saliva that may contain pathogens that would otherwise possibly be inhaled via aerosol or to expel pathogens infecting the throat and respiratory system. Cough benefits the host by reducing load and benefits the pathogen which may then spread via aerosol. ...Read more
