My blood mpressure is Ok. I do not have any vomiting. I have no other diseases. I got relief from taking an Advil Cold 7 sinus tablet. I have been feeling this way for about five days or so. The weather keeps changing from warm to cold & rainy here in South nj. I also work outside in the parks & playgrounds.

Thanks for information.

According to the information gathered from your history, it appears that you are having problem with sinus.

Advil tablets what you are taking usually helps. But sometimes antibiotic may be needed when it is complicated by bacterial infection. In that case you have to consult doctor.

In Brain tumour or cancer headache usually associated with either vomiting, weakness of some part of body, convulsion or change in personality.

However if it is continuing you have to consult your doctor for investigation to find out the cause.

If you need further clarifications, I will be happy to explain further.

Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 9 years ago.
With sneezing , stuffy nose & headache for 5 days I feel there is no much reason to worry

but as I have written earlier that if it continues for long without improving , even for sinus

problem you are to consult your doctor.
