    Severe Headaches related to Sinusitis?
    thelightyoubring2007 posted:
    Ok here is my dilemma... Mind you I am kind of anxiety ridden and, somewhat of a hypochondriac so hear me out before you think I am nuts...

    Back history (That may be related):
    -Gave birth October 29th (Healthy baby boy)
    -Mid December I notice a cyst on my nipple. Went to the OB and was told it a most likely a clogged milk duct or Mastitis and it would go away on it own (which it did)
    -January, I start developing chest and upper back pain. I went to the ER and was told that I had costocondritis and it should clear up (Which it did)
    -This month, I started getting weird back pain again and tingling in my upper back.

    Wednesday- I started developing severe headaches that were continuous. I went to the ER and was told it was a migraine.
    Saturday-Sunday- Headaches continue, I develop nausea and dizziness.
    I went back to the ER where they do a CT scan. Results indicate that my brain is fine, however, I have sinusitis. They give me antibiotics and send me home.

    It is now Wednesday again and, my headaches have not improved and im still nauseated.

    I cannot get a doctors appointment to follow up, literally until March 11th

    Has anyone experienced a sinus infection this bad? I am really scared. I keep telling myself that the CT scan showed no abnormalities but, I cant get myself to believe this head pain and nausea is sinusitis
