Sinus Infection Frequent Urination
Here are some...: Sinusitis is not directed associated with frequent urination. But taking OTC or prescribed drugs (if containing antihistamine or alpha-adrenergic) may exaggerate the originally already impaired urine flow with increasing high postpaid residual urine leading to urinary frequency. To deduce what may happen to you, follow instructions described in http://www. Formefirst. Com/eNewsletter06.html. ...Read more

I noticed some bright red blood in my urine today. For the past week, I have been suffering from a sinus infection that has turned into a frequent cou?
Wrong test site: A urine dip stick picks up white blood cells that are present in urine if there is an inflammatory process in the urinary tract. It does so by testing for an enzyme (leukocyte esterase) present in white cells. The urinary system is a filter of the blood stream but usually active white cells are very sticky and would not make it from the circulation to the urine.? Sinus aspirate? ...Read more

Not congested, can smell still but can't really taste anything. I'm not sick. Can this be related to sinus infection without congestion?
Loss of taste: You are describing loss of taste only, not smell. Usually, a sinus infection comes with congestion, nasal discharge, postnasal drip, and loss of smell. Then, taste is secondarily affected. You have to get evaluated by your doctor and probably an ENT to look into your loss of taste. ...Read more

Infection by itself can make you feel tired also. See your doctor for screening blood work if your fatigue symptoms persist or worsen dramatically ...Read more
I had sinuplasty 5 days ago, I feel like I have a sinus infection again! I don't know if it's still swollen, or if things are trying to drain! ?
Postop symptoms: You just had sinus surgery 5 days ago. Even though you had a more minimal procedure, you had sinus surgery. You will have some pain and definitely it is swollen in there for a while. Use a sinus rinse bottle at least twice per day, take tylenol (acetaminophen) or stronger pain med at night. Call your surgeon. It would not be unusual to stay on antibiotics for a while after surgery. ...Read more

Is it unusual to have sinus infection MRSA without fever. I tested positive on culture that was suctioned rather than swab, but I don't have fever.?

Anosmia: Causes broadly fall in 3 categories: post-head trauma, anatomic nasal obstruction, or olfactory nerve dysfunction. Obstruction can be from chronic sinusitis or nasal allergies. Nerve dysfunction is usually post-viral after a common cold. See an ENT for a thorough nasal exam and possibly a scan. ...Read more

Could I have a sinus infection? My nosed has been stuffed up for 3 weeks and im getting head aches that don't go away
Based: Based on your symptoms it is more probable that you are having an allergic sinus / nasal reaction to seasonal allergens (pollen). An infection is also probable but less likely. You need to see your physician to obtain a definitive diagnosis and management plan. In the mean time, obtain an antihistamine / decongestant, such as Claritin d, from your pharmacy to see if it improves your symptoms. ...Read more
Hello...I know this may sound odd but please don't be upset when I ask this. Can swallowing semen cause a sinus infection?
Infection: Generalized upper respiratory infections (uri's)including sinus infections, are caused by contracting the infectious agent (bacteria or viral) from an individual carrying the infection. The act of swallowing semen may not necessarily cause a sinus infection, but more likely it is inhalation of the agent during close contact with an infected individual, like heavy breathing, open mouth kissing, etc. ...Read more
I thought my sinus congestion was allergies but it hasn't gone away. It's been almost a week now, could it be a sinus infection?
Possibly: Keep in mind that allergies, particularly during peak periods like April-June, can linger far beyond a week's time. A sinus infection is usually considered after two weeks, and only if there is significant nasal drainage, occasionally fever, but also facial pressure/pain, post-nasal drip and fatigue. Otherwise, if you have known allergies, they are likely the culprit. ...Read more
I have an extremely painful sinus infection. No money, no insurance. Otc meds don't work. How can I treat it at home and get relief?
Difficult question: Sinus infection is the result of blockage of the ostia (openings) of the air containing cavities in the face communicating with the nose. Therefore the treatment is ventilation and drainage. Or more specifically, the blockage has to be relieved. I can not believe that a community hospital emergency room could not help. If there is truly a sinus infection, you need good medical treatment. ...Read more

I'm now taking Cipro (ciprofloxacin) because Bactrim didn't help my sinus infection. Cipro (ciprofloxacin) helped me before when I had sinusitis so will it help me now?
Cipro (ciprofloxacin) may or may: Not help, depending on the type of infection. With sinusitis, Cipro (ciprofloxacin) is not a first choice treatment. However if it helped you before, it certainly may do that again. I would make sure I see a healthcare provider sooner than later if you don't feel well after, say, 5 days being on Cipro (ciprofloxacin). And you usually need antibiotic treatment for 10-14 days minimum for bacterial sinusitis. ...Read more
