I'm glad I went to the doctor. Despite the tylenol (max dose) I still have a fever of 100 today. Just glad I didn't wait even despite the hassle. Having kitties and good friends around helps. Thankful.
Sending you wishes of health and hugs!
Thanks! I didn't get much sleep but I did read a good book. Even though I'm not better yet, knowing the antibiotics are in there taking care of beezwax helps.
Your hair is beautiful, druidesskat!
You're very sweet! Thank you!
Personally I'm jealous of Lanette's locks o love.
SO PRETTY and natural!!!
No doubt, Lanette's hair is gorgeous and natural!
But I'm a sucker for the bold colors. Mine used to be purple.
(oh, I just realized it's still purple in my userpic, so that's a little redundant?)
I'm really really glad you went. Not only do I prefer that you not be in all that extra pain, but sinus infections reeling out of control have been known to cause brain damage. The sinuses are just that close to the brain (all the times I've had sinus surgery I've also had to sign papers saying I acknowledge that I could suffer blindness or brain damage as a result).
Anyway, sending much love and hoping you're feeling better soon!
Thank you! I stayed home from work today and finally slept for so long. It's the first time in WEEKS I've had this little pain in my head already.
What did they end up saying about the 2 meds together?
I ended up taking them and it's going great. I decided that my fever and infection was simply more important than the risk of 17 people who negatively correlate with my situation, age, health status, and medication dose and that to forbid me from taking an entire class of antibiotics was unwarranted. Of course, I'm doing much better already from the antibiotics and have no symptoms of the rare side effect at all. So, in short, I didn't ask and I'm glad I didn't.
I realize safety of the patient is most important, but in this litigious society sometime the medical community is extremely risk adverse to a fault based on fear more than reason.
