Sick of being sick
ISWIM posted:
Long story short....after going to the dentist I had severe dental pain. Called the dentist and went back and he found nothing. 4 days later I went to the doctor since I still had it and had a fever. Diagnosed with a sinus infection. I was given an antibiotic, but after 6 days of using it and feeling nauseous after taking it by doctor told me to stop taking it. A week later I was sick again, but worse than I was before. I was put on another antibiotic. I finished that one and felt great except for a cough that I couldn't get rid of. Went back to the doctor and she gave me an inhaler for this cough. It seems to be working, but now I have ear pain. Can an inhaler cause ear infections?
