I’m no stranger to sinus headaches and pressure. In fact, I get them regularly. But the ones I’ve been dealing with for the past week have been horrible. Usually, I can relieve the pressure and pain with some over-the-counter medicines, but not this one. So after being forced by my husband and daughter, I went to the doctor. And, lo-and-behold, I have a sinus infection and upper respiratory infection. The funny thing is, besides the extreme pressure, pain and fatigue (which is saying something because, due to my extreme iron deficiency, I live on a daily diet of prescription iron supplements and caffeine just to try to feel normal), I don’t feel sick. So I was surprise to be diagnosed with upper respiratory infection.
I left the doctor’s office with a steroid shot in the hip and 3 prescriptions (steroid pack, antibiotics and benzonatate for cough). I had plans to spend the day with some friends, a girls day/night out, and was actually looking forward to it, but with the pain, pressure and now possible contagiousness, I decided to cancel.
So here I am trying to get some work done and I cannot concentrate and just want to stretch out on the couch and fall asleep.
