Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Do you have any other medical problems or take any medication?
Has your doctor done any medical workup other than to say it is a flu?
he has given me 4 courses of amoxicillin which did relieve it for a few days but back to square one then
Ok. Well, it sounds more likely, since the amoxicillin helped for a bit that you have a bacterial issue going on at this point and, given your symptoms and the location of your pain, I would bet that it is in your sinuses
It seems to be that this has been going on too long for it all to be from a viral flu infection at this point.
what should i do at this point. i have tried all sinus sprays etc to ease pain, found them no good. could i need operation on sinuses to remove bacteria?
I wouldn't rush to think that surgery is needed just yet....but what I do think you need to do is consult with an Ear Nose and Throat (ENT) specialist.
This is the best trained doctor to help you.
It is clear to me that your current doctor, who is willing to call this the "8 month flu" , is not going to be able to make you feel better.
Does this make sense to you?
why would it make me feel flu like the whole time, not head cold but just weak and tingly sensations through my body. i understand what your saying just wish it would go
I know exactly how you feel....I had a undiagnosed issue myself a few years ago and suffered for months before I got the right treatment....and I'm a doctor :(
A bacterial infection in one part of your body, such as your sinus cavities, can affect your entire body, causing weakness, aches and pains and just a general poor feeling.
I don't think just saying that you have had a flu infection for this long is correct. Rather then stay with this MD and make try to make him look harder, I think it is time to switch horses and get safely across the stream.....make sense?
ok thank you
My pleasure. Have a good day.
I had the feedback button off...could you please mash it again?
