I've gotten slammed by a sinus infection and strep throat

  1. And I feel really horrible. Had to call off today. Nose alternating between draining and horribly plugged. Can feel it moving into my chest. I cried in my mommy's arms last night, Can U believe it? Please send some chicken soup my way??? So sorry for whining. Whaaaahhhhhhh!!

    Me too had to three rounds of abx first bactrim which did no touch it then I got Augmenten which seemed to be working but two days after i finished i started blowing green again now on Cipro I think when we have a really bad flu season for some reason we always get hit with a serious sinus infection too.

    Yeah good luck I hope you feel better soon too. I hated that when you whole head is just full and you can't blow without popping your eardrums and then out of nowhere your nose will just start running or should I say dripping. Yeah it was the worst sickness I have been through in about 4 years.

    Glad to hear that I'm not the only one suffering. Not that I would wish this upon my worst enemy, but misery loves company, you know.

    I felt so bad yesterday I was convinced I contracted some horrible disease at the hospital and was never going to recover. To top it off, I'm pregnant and that makes me about 1000 times more neurotic than usual.

    I know exactly what you guys are talking about with your head about to explode. I told my DH that I wished snot was a commodity because I could be the chief producer.

    OB started me on PCN today, so hopefully I will be on the upswing in a day or two.

    Chicken soup and hugs to all the rest of you in the "sick ward."

    So sorry, Theresa.......I had the flu a couple of months ago, and that was followed up by a sinus infection the likes of which I haven't had since I was in my mid-30s. I feel for ya, honey!

    Just be sure to drink plenty of warm fluids to thin the secretions and keep your airways open........I hope your asthma doesn't flare up again, it sounds like you were getting it under control awhile back. And rest, rest, REST!

    Let us know how you're doing.
