    Chronic Sinus Infections :(

    Is anyone having chronic sinus infections, if so, is there anything your doctor was willing to do to help? I've had this sinus infection since September (3 months), I'm currently 22 weeks pregnant and my primary doctor won't do much to treat it because of the pregnancy. I've had a couple of rounds of antibiotics but it isn't helping and he won't let me take them longer than 10 days.

    Did anyone find anything that was helpful? I've been missing work and having horrible headaches and I can't exercise because its irritating my asthma. I'm so bummed cause I think if it wasn't for this I would be having my best pregnancy ever!

    Suggestions are appreciated!!!

    I know I am late with his. I had a sinus infection and broncittis. I was miserable. I eneded up with antibiotics, pseudoephed, and inhaler. I was on agmentin (aintibotics) for 5 days and ened up having to change to a z-pak. I used saline spray and flushed my sinuses. I was also given cough medicine with codine. When I went to the pharmacy prior to the doc and asked if I could take pseudoephed she said no but then the doc gave me some. I 'm sorry I hope you are feeling better.
