Hi there, This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist. I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Do you notice any change in vision.
Usually this is due to the sinus inflammation from the recent cold.
Neurofen helps with the inflammation and hence the improvement.
Usually should not last longer than a week.
Howevr, there is also risk of infection behind the eyeball.
That can affect your vision or pain with the eye movement.
Orbital cellulitis is the condition that requires antibiotics.
So, please see your GOP if you develop any of these symptoms.
The Neurofen only seem to help for appx 3 hours is it ok to keep taking them or should I go to my GP
I think you should go to your GP for a clinical evaluation and at least a stronger pain medication if no infection.
my vision is fine but my synuses are blocked
that means you do have sinus infection most likely
will benefit from antibiotic
and also a decongestant like Sudafed
Thanks for the advise
