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 symptoms?
Any other medical problems?
Do you take any medication?
no, to all 3 questions
It sounds like you either have a head cold, sinusitis or the start of the flu. In any event it is most likely a viral issue and, as such, antibiotics won't help.
I would first try over the counter/home therapy such as a humidifier, ibuprofen (as you are already doing) and claritin-D
Since it is the middle of the week I would see how thing go today and tomorrow. It if stays about the same, or gets a bit better I would just continue what you are doing. If not, this still gives you time to get in to see your doctor for some stronger medicine if necessary so you don't have to suffer all weekend.
Does this make sense to you?
I hope you feel better soon. Have a good day.
