Infections: The infections in the sinuses or the just finished root canal treatment either still there or did not go away completely, consult your doctor for treatment. Swollen lymph nodes are indicative of infections in the areas they drain..

Myokymia: Random twitching of an eyelid, which is benign, is called myokymia (an involuntary, spontaneous, quivering of a few muscle cell bundles within a muscle). Ocular myokymia, is quite common and self-limited, it can last a few minutes to a few days. It can be caused by stress, dry eyes, fatigue, caffeine, and lack of sleep. Reduce intake of alcohol/tobacco/caffeine, get rest, reduce stress, tx eyes.

Can a sinus infection make ur eyelid swell if so how long does it take for swelling to go down?

Can a sinus infection make ur eyelid swell if so how long does it take for swelling to go down?

See doc tomorrow AM.: It sounds like your sinus infection has spread to your eye area. This is a known possible complication of sinus infections known as preseptal cellulitis. Are you currently being treated with an antibiotic? Did the swelling start while you were on the antibiotic? You will definitely need to either start antibiotics or change. If you are having eye pain, you need to go to er tonight.

Think I have a sinus infection. My right actual eyeball is starting to look swollen and bigger then the other. Can it be from sinus infection?

Think I have a sinus infection. My right actual eyeball is starting to look swollen and bigger then the other. Can it be from sinus infection?

Possible; concerning: The usual sinus infection should not cause your eye to protrude out/make it swollen, unless abscess forming and pushing up thus pushing the eyeball forward. Because of much inflammation, some swelling/edema of the lid is common. Since your description is quite concerning due to eye involvement, I recommend seeing doc asap for eval and treatment. Good luck.

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! ?

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.

I have sinus infection symptoms currently, but in addition to pain behind forehead and eyebrow, I swear my eyebrow is swollen. Does this happen?

I have sinus infection symptoms currently, but in addition to pain behind forehead and eyebrow, I swear my eyebrow is swollen. Does this happen?

Yes, can be serious: Swelling of the forehead can happen from infection of the frontal sinuses. Recurrent difficulty with frontal sinus infections can be more serious than other sinuses. If you have swelling or tenderness of the frontal forehead region with a sinus infection, should see a physician for examination, possible X-ray, and antibiotics

Had a sinus infection. Was given a Zpak, didn't work. Given Augmented Amoxicillin, that worked. Now cervical & auxilery nodes are swollen. Any ideas?

Axillary nodes: Are not typically enlarged due to sinus infections. Another cause should be considered. Your primary care healthcare practitioner should be able to help you sort it out.

A few swollen hard/some soft lymphnodes on collar bone. I have a sinus infection could this be why? Cbc normal

Ignore them: Everybody your age has a few palpable nodes in the head / neck / collarbone region. Only if they are stony-hard, preposterously large, or attached to surrounding structures are they worrisome.

I have a painful swollen lump on the opening of my right nostril along the septum accompanied by symptoms of what feels like a sinus infection. Help?

Bump on ant. Septum: The bump on the anterior septum could be one of two things. Do it bleed easily, if so it is pyogenic granuloma. If it does not bleed easily it could be an infected hair follicle. Try some bacitracin on the area and see the local ent doctor. He or she will sort out the issue very readily. Good luck and feel better.

I'm on Zpack for a sinus infection. But have pus coming from a tooth where the gum is swollen. .. will the zpack help with this or do I need a diff?

I'm on Zpack for a sinus infection. But have pus coming from a tooth where the gum is swollen. .. will the zpack help with this or do I need a diff?

Zpac & dentistry: We don't often use Zpak for dental use. In our office, Amoxicillin 500 mg or Clindamycin 150 mg for penicillin allergy/sensitive patients is preferred. The source of your pus must be assessed and treated. It could be a dead tooth or one who has comprimised gum and bone around it. You need to be certain that you are not taking too much antibiotic simultaneously. See a dentist!

You should: The only way to cure a dental abscess is with dental treatment. We have now entered an era where some bacterial species are resistant to the full range of antibiotics presently available. See your dentist for re-evaluation and dental treatment. Good luck.

I had a sinus infection that has left two swollen glands on the back of my neck which are painful, and now I have an enlarged thymis. Causes?

Length of time?: You have not said how long you have had these symptoms. If it is a short time, you likely have an infection with reactive lynphadenopathy which should resolve. Longer time requires you to see a doctor.
