Five days ago felt some dizziness with head pain; headache. then chills and fever. Over the past five days i have had to take ibuprofen to keep feven down and each time I break the fever and sweat profusely. Four hours later I repeat the ibuprofen and the same happens. General malaise, tiredness and minimal sinus drainage. There is some in the back of my throat. Cough has come and gone with some bouts of coughing, but generally not overwhelming.

This was diagnosed as Rhinosinusitus three days ago and amoxicillin was given. I have not taken it. Thinking virus...

Today I waited three hours after I should have taken my next dose of ibuprofen and my fever spiked at 101.

any thoughts?
