God does sinus pain ever get any better cuz my cheeks teeth neck and pretty much my whole face kills I'm on amox clav but not to better help?

MY be something else: If your only symptom is pain then it may not be an infection. I see many people with "sinus pain" who have headaches or migraines or jaw and teeth problems. If you can breathe easily through your nose and you have no yellow or greenish mucus it is possible you do not have a sinus infection and therefore antibiotics will not help you. You should see an ENT doctor for an evaluation. Read more

Experiencing sinus pain/he aches, neck pain, vision issues, extreme sleepiness. Right side eye pain and ear pain. Ear feels full or stuffy. Ideas?

Possibly migraine: You are having a migraine issue. The ear pain may be from teeth clenching or grinding partly related to your anxiety or less likely an inner ear infection. You need to talk to your doctor and get examined. Glaucoma should be ruled out as the cause for the eye pain- get the eye pressure checked since it may lead to permanent loss in vision if left untreated. Good luck. Read more

My mother has been feeling dizzy like fainting, pain in back of head and neck nausea and happens out of nowhere what can she have? Help please

Your mother: May have a serious condition and may need to be evaluated sooner as opposed to later. She may need some tests to be done. If this is sudden and new she may benefit from ER evaluation today. If this old and not sudden, but more gradual, and she feels fine otherwise- calling her Doctor in the AM to be seen would be prudent. We try not to diagnose in this forum. Read more
