Back in late November I started having really irritating cheek pain. It felt like I had been smiling for days and was achy and sore. When it didn't go away for about a week and a half, I sought medical help. I'd looked up a bunch of things online, and the closest description to what I was feeling was sinusitis. Although, I did not have any congestion. The doctor seemed to think I wasn't completely truthful, which let's be honest irked me. He told me to take a decongestant (suggested Sudafed) and Tylenol or some other pain-killer, and prescribed me a nasal steroid (the name escapes me). This worked for maybe a couple days. At that point I was getting ready to move and didn't have time to deal with it anymore. It became more intermittent, and I assumed it was "getting better".
I got a serious infection from a family member right before the new year. It was your typical congested/exhausted illness. I went to the doctor after I couldn't get it away on my own, and she gave me azithromax and codeine. I'm barely congested now (5 days past the last antibiotic), but the facial pain is back with a vengeance.
