Can a UTI or sinus infection cause irritability?
I have a UTI and also a sinus infection, yesterday i started throwing up and couldn’t eat. My husband forced me to eat, and sadly i almost threw up as soon as i put the food on my mouth. After that i had horrible stomach ache and threw up, i had diarrhea and chills, and felt so nervous i couldn’t sleep or stand still. He checked my pulse and blood pressure but everything seemed normal, he forced me to drink a hot chocolate and gave me a tylenol pm to sleep, and i did.

I felt much better but now im nervous again, for no reason, i still have diarrhea, my oral surgeon perscribed me Vicodin for my tooth pain, and i stopped taking it the day before yesterday, once he found out i had a sinus inflamation that was infected. I didn’t want to go to emergency, because where i live ER makes fun of you and treat you poorly, they don’t care about the vomiting, nausea stomach pain or nervousness, and they never treat you.

Is this vicodin withdrawal? or UTI irritability?

Answer by Alice K
Vicodin always makes me throw up. Couldn’t you go to a different ER?

Answer by Flavia
YOu sound very ill.
I am sorry.
the antibiotics will take care of the UtI, but the sinus infection is something else.
they this
The only things that really helped me was when my Dr. told me about a sinus wash that will kill bacteria.
you need

distilled water
sea salt
liquid chlorophyll and colloidal silver from the health food store.
in a glass mix 1/4 cup water with a pinch of salt and heat to body temperature.
add 5 drops each silver and chlorophyll and mix.
using a large dropper (like one used for infant medication) drop 2 full droppersfull into one side of the nose while laying down.
Turn the head and let it drain out the other nostril. Be sure to have paper towels handy.
The silver kills the bacteria and there are several hundred kind that can live in the sinus cavities and anti biotics don’t get rid of them all.
Do this twice a day for a week, mixing up the mixture fresh each time.
Then do it once a week for maintenance.
There is nothing in this that will hurt you, and it cured me.
I do not have to take claritin, or antibiotics anymore.
best wishes

Has anyone had a sinus cyst removed and was there any relief of these symptoms?

Has anyone had a sinus cyst removed and was there any relief of these symptoms?
I have had headaches for 5-8 years= migraines and sinus headaches, severe sinus pressure, post nasal drip, horrible allergies, continual ear infections/ear aches, some dizziness, and feeling like I’m in a surreal/dreamlike setting, along with most recently some nausea and diarrhea and even vomiting on occasion.
I had a CT scan and i have a cyst and something else the dr. didn’t go into. I see an ENT in a little over a week.
I have been put on a rigorous antibiotic schedule as well as a nasal steroid and allergy/decongestant combo (with little relief, except allergies are better) The current headache has been present for a good solid week if not more.
Wondering what treatments people have done for this and what i should be expecting.

Answer by jenius
Yes it was discovered when I had my wisdom teeth removed and it helped a lot to have it removed…not so many sinus infections anymore or the headaches. Best of Luck hope it makes you feel better having it removed.

Answer by jandy
You need and immunological workup, and need to be worked up for cystic fibrosis. you could have a polyp(s). Might need IV antibiotics and doc should do cultures preop without antibiotics. A sweat test can be negative for CF as well as the most common screening tests at most major hosp/universities. You should contact your local CF clinic and get tested. There are over 1500 mutations. Chronic sinusitis, diarrhea/vomiting can be symptoms of CF. Do you have asthma or shortness of breath or a productive cough? Atleast bring this up to your doctor. Usually children are diagnosed with this,but it’s not unheard of for people in their 20′s and 30′s or even older to have this. It’s genetic by the way. I was diagnosed last year, age 50. If you are on antibiotics pre/intra/post op, cultures most likely will be negative, but I’ll bet you’ll get another sinus infection within 2-3 months. Pseudomonas is a common pathogen for CF. please, please review cff.org or cfww.org. I did the same thing you did until finally diagnosed. no family hx. Most docs recommend NeilMed warm saline sinus rinses 2-3x daily, these really help. sometimes ibuprofen 6-800mg 3x aday and genuine sudafed 120mg twice daily help. Hope you get some relief. Most oral antibiotics don’t penetrate to the sinuses and even IV ones are limited. There is a Pari SinuStar nasal nebulizer that requires an Rx for tobramycin meds or others to be directly delivered to the sinuses. Not sure if this will help you just yet. You need to see what your cultures are growing. Good luck.

Sinus Infection question, please answer ;]?
I’m sick ;( I went to the doctor like 2 weeks ago & I was told I had a Sinus Infection. My symptoms are: headache, nausea, feeling faint, weak & sleepy, stomach also hurts, diarrhea a couple times. I finished all my antibiotic (amoxicillin), taken a medicine for my sinuses & have drank tea, but I still feel pretty bad…. ;[

How can I feel better? Is it really just a Sinus Infection?

Answer by livelaughlovelifexx
the amoxicillin is the cause of your stomach hurting and the diarrhea. but if your still having these other symptoms you need to go back to the doctor. he should put you on another antibiotic . if nothin clears up after that tests will most likely be done.

Answer by Superclerk
Antibiotics are giving you diarrhea. Have yogurt to restore the natural bacteria in your intestines and stop the diarrhea. Did you have a fever? Antibiotics only work on bacterial infections. If you had a fever, that would be a good indicator of a bacterial infection. This is probably just a viral infection, miserable as it is, and antibiotics don't help viral infections. You should definitely be taking a decongestant, which will help with the nausea and dizziness. Congestion in the inner ear canal will make you feel nauseous, dizzy, and tired. Ibuprofen like Motrin and Advil will help relieve your sinus headache. Keep drinking the tea, its very soothing.

I get a sinus infection about once per year, I have one now. It takes about as long to clear sinus congestion as it does to clear a cough.

Pregnant and suffering from Seasonal Allergies or Sinus infection?

Pregnant and suffering from Seasonal Allergies or Sinus infection?
Hi. I’m almost 18 weeks into pregnancy #2, and Saturday, Sunday, and Monday mornings I woke up with a slight sore throat and stuffy nose that dissipated within an hour of waking. Well, Tuesday the whole she-bang hit – sneezing, watery eyes, one nostril clogged, the other running, a few body aches, and last night/today a slight fever (99.3). I did see my general practitioner today as my OB/GYN doesn’t handle many non-pregnancy related issues. My GP prescribed Augmentin 875 for 10 days for treatment of a sinus infection. So here’s my question: How do I know that it’s really a sinus infection and not seasonal allergies? I live in the deep south, and pollen here is just outrageous right now. I’m a seasonal allergy sufferer even when not pregnant, but can’t take my normal Allegra-D right now. And Claritin doesn’t help much, though I’m taking it anyway on the advice of my OB.

But I was under the impression that a sinus infection takes 7 to 10 days to even develop once other cold/allergy symptoms are present. I’ve only really been “sick” for 3 days. I don’t want to treat a sinus infection that isn’t there, and I do know that Augmentin is a pretty powerful antibiotic. I had to take 2 rounds of Zithromax and then Augmentin as a last resort during my pregnancy in 2010 with my son, but I had been sick for literally 3 months. So why such a jump to an antibiotic now after only 3 days? I certainly do want to treat any infection that may be present, but I’m not convinced at this point that there is one. My sinus drainage is only yellowish first thing in the morning, the rest of the day I’m either stopped up, or it’s clear. It’s normal for me to run a slight fever with any cold or allergy – so that doesn’t point me to believe I have an infection yet.

So what’s your advice? I don’t feel “infected.” I don’t feel great – but who with pollen allergies does? I don’t have sinus pressure, facial pain, jaw pain, ear pain, headache, or any of the more typical sinus infection symptoms. I had them ALL in my last pregnancy, and I was suffering true chronic sinusitis at the time. Should I just take the antibiotic now anyway – and risk the nausea, diarrhea, etc – ask for a gentler antibiotic tomorrow since Augmentin 875 is a bit much so soon, or wait it out a couple days and see if the Claritin, Saline Spray, and Vick’s VapoRub start clearing it all up? I’m just very hesitant to take an antibiotic that I’m not SURE I need during pregnancy – and tearing up my intestinal probiotics for 10 days is not an appealing idea right now either :(

Thanks in advance for your advice – and please, there’s no need to be rude! I’m looking for experienced opinions and empathetic advice! God Bless!

Answer by pelican
I would give the Claritin and spray and Vick’s a chance first, and then check back with the doctor if it does not help.

Sinus drainage and allergies?

Sinus drainage and allergies?
I am just wondering if these things can be caused by sinus drainage and allergies combined
Upset stomach, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea
Sneezing, itchy eyes
Fatigue/feeling out of it
Restlessness
Constant feeling of drainage in back of throat/gagging feeling
Pressure in face/ears
Does this sound like it’s it or something else? And what should I take for it?

Answer by Msthoro K
These are all very common symptoms of sinus infecftion except nausea and the other stomach problems, you might get some labs done to make sure its not a sinus infection combined with something else.

Answer by Sup!
Constant feeling of drainage in back of throat/gagging feeling. The upset stomach, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea could be caused from your sinuses draining into the back of your throat and into your stomach and going through your digestive system.

Fatigue/feeling out of it Restlessness could be the fact that you are not feeling well and probably not sleeping well at night since you are also not breathing well due to the stuffed up nose. During the day if you aren’t breathing well it will make you feel tired and fuzzy. Allergy medicine does this to you as well.

Sneezing, itchy eyes, Pressure in face/ears this is caused by the Cold, Allergies, flu, sinus infection.

You can get an over the counter inhaler to help the breathing “Fatigue/feeling out of it” and you might sleep better. The drainage isn’t helping your breathing. Try sleeping sitting up a bit with pillows and not laying flat for very long. Hot showers, steam, sauna, or hot tub. Help a lot!!!!

Pepto Bismal with the nausea. Gatorade for diarrhea. Musinex in the syrup form, helps break up the mucus. It might relieve the pressure you feel in your face and ears. Advil helps with the swelling too. Benedril helps you sleep at night and will help with the Allergies if that is what it is. If its a flu it will work like Nyquil.
