This answer was rated:

7 weeks ago on holiday in Europe I started getting sinusitus symptoms. By the time I get back 10 days ago it was severe. The doctor telephone prescribed Doxycycline for 1x 100mg for 2 weeks. The pain in my face has gone but I have severe symmetrical pain that moves around between my jaw line, my teeth, under and in front of my ears. Is this normal with sinusitus please

Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.

Yes, this is pretty normal with a severe case

is it getting better?

Very slowly. I feel much worse 2 hours after taking Doxycycline

that could be because the toxins are getting broken down into your blood

I would ask your doctor about a course of steroids to help

is this helpful?
