I went to my doctor today because of jonbaker, who'd been nagging me to do this for half of last week. I went feeling like the queen of hypochondriacs. I mean, one mention of migraine and my head aches for a week? *Sheesh* And the med didn't really work, either.
And we talk and I mention that after a week of pain, it had gotten easier *and* I felt lightheaded, but there was pain around my eyes.
And he asked me if my sinuses drain. Yeah, all the time, and it's thick.
And he pressed under my cheekbones. And it *hurt*. And it's not supposed to hurt at all. And he said it might well be sinusitis, which also has similar symptoms to what I've been having.
Here's the thing, though. Chronic sinusitis is probably unfun, but it can be cured with antibiotics, like the big horsepills I now have. And then it's gone. And my face stops hurting and my head stops hurting, and I can sleep lying down, maybe.
And it's not a big monster waiting to eat my life. That's a big thing. :)
