Several yrs ago I went to a dr who diagnosed me w/ a sinus infection. My symptoms at the time were: pain at the base of my neck, headache, pain in temples, reallyno stuffiness or congestion. After a round of antibiotics and still no relief she sent me for an MRI which showed I had a sinus infection. She put me on a stronger RX and it cleared it up.
For the past 5 wks I have been congested and have had a sore throat on and off. Thursday night before bed I kept getting this pain above my left eye that lasted a few seconds. In the night when I would get up to potty and was up for the day the pain continued. I felt stuffy & congested. Not the same symptoms as my last diagnosis. I went to the same dr who again diagnosed me w/ a sinus infection. She put me on 2 (generic) pills of Omnicef a day and said if by Monday I wasn't feel better to let her know. I felt fine Saturday and Sunday. Monday I had a slight headache but not the pain above my eye or when I stood up. Same thing Tuesday. Tuesday night the pain above my ey started again. I called the dr and am waiting for a call back, assuming they will give me a stronger RX.
Do these symptoms match up w/ a sinus infection: stuffiness & congestion, pain / headache across my forehead, and pain above my eye when I stand up (after laying down or bending over) that lasts for a few seconds.
