I had an MRI and was told I have a severe sinus infection in every sinus in my head. ..I also have severe shoulder pain....Is this due to infection?

Unlikely. Mri is not a good test for looking at the sinuses but it can often detect fluid and inflammation. These findings on MRI are not usually related strictly to sinus infection. Though possible, a connection between your sinuses and your shoulder is unlikely. More history about your shoulder pain would be helpful. Read more...

I have had sinus infection for 7 days now I'm having ear pain and neck feels swollen should I see a doctor?

Yes! If you are currently on antibiotics for the sinus infection, they will probably treat the ear infection too, but you may need a different antibiotic. You should at least call the doc who prescribed the antibiotics to ask if they need to see you again. If you are not on medication yet, you should get checked out. Good luck! Read more...
