Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
The symptoms that you are mentioning point to an upper respiratory infection
Most likely either sinusitis or pharyngitis. The pain around your eyes and the bridge of the nose and the ears keep popping goes more in favour of a sinus infection.
The muscle twitching that you are having could most likely be related to the severe anxiety that you are experiencing.
I do not think that it is related to your current infection that you are having.
It is very unlikely to be anything serious.
Are you with me?
I've tried a course of augmentin for a week and it hasn't helped. I'm worried because its not clearing up. Headaches are unusual for me. My nose is quite blocked but i'm not snotty. I've been quite light headed too
My face is not tender to touch just pressure especially around the bridge of my nose
Quite often the bugs nowadays are resistant to augmentin. Also it can take up to two weeks to settle completely if it's a viral infection for which an antibiotic will not help.
it has been 2 weeks
There are a few sinuses in our skull. one each below each eye and one each above each eye.
So sinus infection can present with a variety of presentations.
what can i do now? nothing helps I've tried nasal sprays and decongestant and anti inflammatory meds. This is why I'm worried its a brain tumour
It is not a brain tumor
If it were a brain tumour you would have had weakness in your arm or leg or other parts of your body.
no I'm not experiencing this
still i would have thought a virus would have cleared by now?
Yes, you should be seen and have your antibiotic changed
most likely your bug was resistant to augmentin
ok ill wait for another appointment
I assure you that this is not a brain tumour.
