I am having problems with my sinus and I think I maybe getting a inter ear infection. I feel light headed and my sinus is running in the back of my throat. I can't get it to blow out through. I am on blood pressures Ned's and was wondering if there is something I could do without having to go in. Also this is making me sick to my stomach.

Tammy,

I think that while your problem may have started out as a viral infection, from what you have posted it is very possible that you now have a secondary bacterial infection.

Unfortunately, the only way to know if this is true -- and to treat it if it is -- would be to see a doctor and get a prescription for antibiotics.

If you do this, I would expect you to start feeling better within 24 hours.

I wish that I could give you a home therapy that would make you feel better without having to go in but, the truth of the matter is, I think your best bet after 5 days of suffering is to get into see an MD....

Does this make sense to you?

I hope this information was helpful for you. But I do work for tips so I want to make sure you are happy with me before rating me. If you have another question on this or a related issue feel free to fire away. You may also receive an email survey after our chat, if you don’t feel that I have earned a “10” rating in all areas, please let me know what I can do to meet your expectations.

Thanks in advance,

Dr. Rick MD FACS

Tammy,

I do not understand why you gave me a poor rating....

I am sorry to see that you have given me a poor rating for the assistance I have provided. Ratings do not apply to system malfunctions...only to the quality of the expert.
I would ask that you give me a chance to provide you with further data so that you have the information you need to address your issue.
I would appreciate a good or excellent rating and will work hard to obtain it if given the chance.
Thank you.
