Sinus infection misery - Page 2

post #31 of 38
Sorry that you're still feeling so bad...You can also try gargling with ginger water (just put some powdered ginger in a glass of very warm water & gargle - just be prepared- it really breaks off the "gunk" lining your throat and often your sinuses will begin draining as well). And if you swallow some of the ginger water, no worries - it settles the tummy
You might also try nibbling on crystallized ginger while you are lying down.
Ginger was the only thing that helped my brain-damaged daughter with the dizziness that was post-Western Equine encephalitis ("sleeping sickness") and it out performed prescription suppositories, oral meds & meds delivered via I.V. She and I use it habitually now, and have had great success treating others with it.
Continuing to send healing prayers and vibes

Well, I had an appointment with my hematologist today, and told him about how I'm still getting headaches and feeling light-headed now (not quite the same as the dizziness before, but still not fun), etc. He wrote me another prescription for antibiotics, that dad says are about 15 bucks a pill! Thank goodness for health insurance!

Ended up having to work over the weekend, and almost a full day today, though I really wanted to stay at home. My boss has an important presentation on Wednesday, and of course, I'm the only one who can put the data together in time. Almost done though - might be able to leave early tomorrow if I'm still not feeling well.

Hopefully this round does the trick - I'm tired of feeling sick!!

Oh, Pam - -I was really hoping that you'd be over this by now I've had to deal with inner ear infections & boy, oh, boy, it is such misery It's kinda like the non-stop morning sickness that I'd get when preggers, but at least, you'll get over this alot sooner & even at $15/pill, you'll be saving money $$

Thanks for the vibes and well-wishes guys! I have a week to beat this before I go fly up to the cold that is Minnesota, so I hope this is done before then!!!

flying w/full sinuses is no fun, & can be somewhat dangerous. i remember my doctor being quite concerned when i had to fly somewhere & i had an ear infection.
sending & that you heal up soon!

I'm sorry this is such a slow process! Please, wear a mask on the plane, to help fend off any reinfection from the miserable recycled air on board...

Okay, two weeks after first being ill, and I am mostly up to snuff again! Got my blood results in from several tests, and they all look good (finally!)

Still tiring out really fast, but that will just take some time. Minnesota, here I come!


Thanks very much for all the vibes - they were much much appreciated!
