The next thing I was given was Erythromycin Stearats(500mg 2 a day for 5 days)However before I started taking them, I had severe attack of dizziness, it was so bad that I had to be taken to hospital. The doctor there confirm the sinusitis and gave me Co-Amoxicillin with Clavulanatet(375mg 3 a day for 7 days) My dizziness, the pressure in the nose (dry) plus discharges going down my troath.
Over the weekend it seems that it has gotten worse - I have had slightly more pressure than normal, and my mucus has gone greener and it stinks. It has changed colour on and off, but I haven't had the odour problem in a while, which seems to indicate to me that the antibiotics are not helping or that I'm getting worse and not better.
I remember reading that Lyme and sinusitis go hand in glove according to "Lyme" rules----- Lyme can present as almost anything. a LOT of people on other forums complain about that. But just because we have Lyme doesn't mean that we can't get 'ordinary' woes. Are you blowing green gunk out your nose? An ENT I saw when I complained about a possible sinus infection asked that question. Perhaps that means something.
Pain over the areas where your sinus are located is very nonspecific for sinusitis. And, incidentally, sinusitis is not known to cause tachycardia - I agree with your doctor's conclusion. Very severe infections can cause tachycardia (eg, septic shock), but not sinusitis. The cardinal symptoms of chronic (bacterial) sinusitis are purulent nasal drainage, facial pressure/fullness/pain and nasal obstruction lasting (continuously) for 12 weeks or longer.
So, is there an antibiotic that would treat both mychoplasma AND sinusitis incase I have one or both?
Went to the PC on Friday, was told I had sinusitis, and given doxycycline. 2 days later I got a rash from it and was told to stop. She prescribed amoxcillin but told me to wait a day and see, seeing as my fever had already gone and maybe it was viral and would go away on its own. I haven't taken the amoxicillin yet, but here it is Wed. and my ears are still completely bocked, although the congestion has lessened and the fever has still not returned. I cannot taste or smell either.
Hi, please try either third generation cephalosporins, cefaclor etc along with decongestants and povidine gargles. Also, get yourself investigated for sinusitis. Do you have deviated nasal septum? Persistant sore throat may be due to associated sinusitis or ear infection. I hope you are not diabetic?
The headache increases along with a feeling of fatigue and I have contant post nasal drip and some infrequent frontal sinus pain (and a history of sinusitis). Perhaps important...?
But one problem is that it may transfer dirt/bacteria from one place to another inside the nose and sinuses and hence may 'spread' the infection when the body defenses may be trying to limit it. So it may be unwise to use in case of acute infections. Ideally it should be undertaken after proper advice from a medical doctor. With a CT showing your sinuses 'blocked', better take advice from an ENT specialist. Hope this helps. Best, Dr.
I have been checked out by Neuro, ENT and GP and NOTHING. I'm wondering if I have TMJ but I don't know. Here are my symptoms... Right ear pain Right ear fullness/ringing Pain behind right eye spot headaches on right side grinding teeth at night stiff neck - going into my shoulders I had an MRI/MRA back in Oct and all it showed was chronic sinusitis which I am being treated for by my ENT however he knows the pain is not coming from my ear. I am worried. Could this be an aneursym?
I was directed to continue taking the doxycycline and after I took the first pill, I began to get a severe headache and nausea. The headache became so severe I went to the ED. They performed a CT Scan which was normal and a Lumbar Puncture Opening Pressure 22. After the LP, the head pressure resolved for 3 weeks. The head pressure returned and Ive had normal MRI/MRV/MRA/CT Sinus scans. I had 3 more lumbar punctures with no relief. The second OP was 18, third OP was 24.
10/12 I took a 14 day course of Doxycycline in December for sinusitis.

middle ear infections 2. tonsillitis 3. throat infections 4. laryngitis 5. bronchitis 6. pneumonia and 7. sinusitis This is very effective against certain transmitted infectious diseases, such as Chlamydia, non-gonococcal urethritis and cervicitis. Recent studies have also indicated it to be effective against late-onset asthma, but these findings are controversial and not widely accepted as of yet.
My doctor suspected Lyme disease when I mentioned I had noticed a few red bumps on my neck upon waking a month or so earlier, and prescribed me a 3 week course of Doxycycline but symptoms did not improve. I found that I had no temperature even though I was certain I must have a fever (hot flash feelings) and it was often subnormal (sometimes as low as 96.9) The highest I ever had was 99F. The weakness has since progressed to twitching all over my body and tenderness in muscles.
When the tiny hairs and nerve endings become damaged as a result of exposure to noise, tinnitus often results. Tinnitus that is caused from sinus problems Sinusitis and allergy sufferers also frequently suffer from tinnitus. This "type" is caused from blocked Eustachian tubes, which results in a pressure buildup in the inner ear. This condition is normally caused by prolonged taking of anti-histamines and antibiotics which can cause a thickening of the mucous in the inner ear.
, OBGYN, Infectious Disease doctor, rheumatologist, neural ophthalmologist, and now I'm going to an allergy doctor to see if allergies are the culprit. I've had an oral temp of 99.4 in the morning to 100.5 in the evening since Nov 06. If I take a shower or bath it goes up to 101. I've had ear drainage, horrible acne on my back and shoulders (I've always had clear skin), scratchy throat, fatigue, occasional numb spots on my legs, night sweats, and muscle twitching.
Infection in the eye, glaucoma, near and far sightedness and sinusitis are the other causes. Since I cannot examine you and know other related conditions you may be having, nor is a detailed history possible on net, I have listed the various possibilities that should be looked into. Please consult your PCP to run tests and examination to clinch a diagnosis. Take care!
I think my doctor was very optimistic the steroid and antibiotic would knock this out. Now that I've completed the 3-day course of the Prednisone (40 mg every day), I'm convinced it won't. Of most note, is that I notice I feel MUCH better in the mornings. As the day wears on and by afternoon, my symptoms worsen and into the evening I'm MISERABLE. I'm now wondering if this is likely due to the fact that this problem is positional?
It started when I took a lot of antibiotics ( amoxicillin and doxycycline ) due to sinusitis although the real cause of my problem was urine infection. I donot have any of those troubles now. I have shown to two doctors one of whom said I have allergy and the other said I donot, putting in any medicine as yet seems to worsen the problem in my eyes. Kindly Help.
I wasn't sure where to post this question as its about drug interactions really. I've been taking anitbiotics, Amoxicillin and Doxycycline (Not both at the same time) to treat recurrent sinusitis but they haven't got on top of the infection. Last Autumn/Fall I had five courses of antibiotics and knew that I still hadn't got rid of the infection. The infection came back last week and I had another course of Amoxicillin.
i started this doxycycline hyclate drug on june 19. and there is improvement 1st day itself. there was relatively lesser discharge today. also, i didnt feel any block in my ear whole day which i used to feel before.
Hi, and sorry you are ill. Well, norovirus usually goes away on its own within about a few days. So, it may be bacterial or even a parasite. If you haven't had a culture done you should have one done. Have you eaten out a lot or at a friends house or family over the holidays? Did anyone else get sick? Your potassium would have to be extremely low (below about 2.7) for it to cause Afib but it is possible.
Despite multiple negative urine cultures, I was prescribed Levaquin (7days) and then Doxycycline (10days). 7 days of Levaquin did absolutley nothing. I still had all symptoms after finishing that med. 10 days of Doxy, symptoms improved slightly, though even after finishing the med I felt that same sensation, like something was dripping out (though, it was only a sensation and there was never a single drop of anything.) After a few weeks those symptoms subsided.
Her doctor has called it sinusitis and tracheitis, but she's been on three courses of antibiotics -- Zithromax, Doxycycline, and now she's finishing 7 days of Biaxin -- and nothing seems to make it better. She doesn't have a fever (running around 99.0) and she says she doesn't feel particularly sick outside of her respiratory system (i.e. no aches, pains, fatigue).
I am always on antibiotics and currently just got on 21 days of doxycycline. I was just on doxycycline for 10 days a month ago. My doc says I have a nasal polyp and I have ENT appt June 1st. I take advair, abruetoral when asthma may flare, singulair, and rhinocort or flonase when I can get samples. I normally cant afford the advair or singulair with out samples from doc. Anyway, I am tired of feeling drugged and sick.
I have been to about 30 doctors- including ENT's allergists, neurologists, chiropracters, opthamologists. psychologists, dentists and everything else u can think of. All CT scans, MRI of brain and blood work keep coming back clean and ok. Nothing I try seems to work. There was a period of time about 3 and a half years ago that the symptoms lifted for about 4 months and then it returned full force.
