I had a sore throat over xmas and a cold, but the cold went pretty quick.
A week later I started to feel very tired and hot spent that week either on the sofa or in bed.
On the Saturday, I had an awful headache, like my brain was touching my skull.
A few days later I started to get an awful pain around my eye and there was a tender feeling near my eyebrow towards my nose. My eyelid started to swell and there was an awful tingling redness from the to of the eye going up to my eyebrow. The horrible boring pain wasn't there all the time and it didn't hurt for me to bend down (like it does in some sinus issues).
I went to the Dr who said it was sinus and told me to buy over the counter nose drops.
Two days later back at the Dr's who then said it was neuralga, suggested pain killers.
Then the pink bit in the corner of my eye started to feel very inflammed, the eye itself isn't pink, it does not itch, my eyes are always dry, sticky.
Went back to the Dr, Dr said it was sinus again and gave me prescribed nose drops.
Eye worse next day, so went back and was given anti-biotics and anti-biotic drops.
4 days into the anti-biotics, my eye isn't much better, it feels very inflammed in the corner, and sore, although there is no discharge or anything.
Would anyone say that this is a normal sinus problem?
I only have one good eye and course this has happened in that one.
Thanks
