Sinus Infection...insomnia sucks

Mar 05, 2016 2:01 AM

I went to Urgent care this morning, after managing to sleep/hallucinate for two hours or so. Anyway, I'm super plugged up, bit am on Sudafed (thank god they were willing to prescribe it, my dad can't travel out of state right now since he works so much) and amoxicillin (idk if that's spelled right) an antibiotic.
I'm so tired right now, spent an hour in the bath with a nose rinse. I keep having to spit up mucus, so I don't puke up my meds, and my throat is burning. Don't know if I'll sleep tonight...I hope so though, cuz of I don't sleep soon it'll be about 60 hours sleepless. Ugh.
I had to pause my normal meds, since I'm having a hard time even with just liquids. Ate a tiny bit today, but then had to spend an hour trying to get rid of gas, and it doesn't help much with the nausea. ... .sorry to rant sp much I'm just exhausted.

You poor thing ,I get sinus infections too and they suck. I hope you feel better soon. Try to get some rest, even if you cannot sleep rest.

I'll definitely try. Probably end up crashing on the couch in a few hours
