View Full Version : month of being extra sick

Please Send out your Prayers and well wishes. Me, and my whole family caught a sinus chest/head cold. My wife was sick first, and gave it to me. She never gets sick. Usually, its me then giving to the kids, and by-passes the wife.
For me it turned into an ear infection. Well I've been thru the regiment of amoxicillin and now, about week later, it's coming back. Ears are popping and da green stuff from the nose.
I'm really getting tired of being sick, on top of my other illnesses.

Thanks all.. went thru an the Urget Care at Hosptial originally.. because of my low income I can go there and get free dental and urgent care.. just other services are extra.
I'm trying to Follow up thru my local Verteran's Clinic.. the triage nurse called me back from there monday and said doc said it sounds like allergies.. WTH... so gonna send me meds to drain my sinuses..
I'll try for a bit.. I believe it is much worse then that.. if 875mg 2x a day, for 10 days of amox didn't help. I need to be healthy for a local trip me and family taking too.. by 20th of June.
After a month.. I'm just tired of being ill besides my usual mental and physically illnesses. I have been DJing for a few months.. but might give it up. Can't really talk while DJing, couching all the time.. body achy.

I had a really nasty sinus/facial infection which snuck up on me and I didn't recognize it for what it was until I'd had severe, horrible pain in my right-lower molars, wisdom tooth removal socket, etc etc.....
I am still confused how a sinus infection (which in the past, during the two other bouts i've had, only hurt in my upper teeth) could cause such severe pain in my lower teeth only, but the Clindamycin my GP prescribed seems to have done the job and knocked it out.
My digestion is wrecked, I have had tons of gut cramping, frequent uncomfortable bathroom visits, and so forth.....my family history of IBS/Colitis/Crohn's showing through thanks to the extremely powerful Clindamycin.....and this morning I puked my guts out for no apparent reason. I'm hoping it isn't because I started taking Lyrica yesterday because I still have some modest hope for the benefits of the Lyrica.....
Anyhow, I definitely know where you're coming from. Lately it's just one thing after another with me.....and yesterday I had to deal with visting an asshole rheumatologist for the second time. I was astounded by how bitchy, uptight, presumptive, self-assured, and closed-minded he was. Barely listened to a word I said, basing all his assumptions on a few blood test numbers and incomplete records received third-hand from my pain clinic which I've only visited once and which doesn't prescribe me anything; my primary does that.....ugh.
I am still so pissed about it. I had low expectations, especially after our painfully lame first visit, but he really sank to a new low of god-awfulness. Gotta love the BS that goes along with these chronic pain conditions and the greedy docs who couldn't care less about compassion or suffering, all they care about is making easy money taking credit for patients that get better DESPITE him instead of because of him.....sigh....
