    *sigh*

    I have EVERY symptom for Acute Sinusitis -- aka a fast acting Sinus Infection.



    He says "no, I don't prescribe anti-biotics unless I'm absolutely positive, you just have a cold..."

    im in the same situation.
    Wisdom teeth pulled by civie. But went to on base sick call to continue to get it checked out. It's been 2 and half weeks, and my jaw won't open more than half the way. And I'm still getting really strong pains, and headaches.

    First mil doctor was a captain, she gave me percocets, and i still had antibiodics.

    Go back and it's a civie mil doctor. He prescribes me motrin :urgh: and wouldn't give me anti biodics even though I am out.

    You know, I was honestly expecting to get some motrin. I got a degongestant, and mucinex--an mucus thinner, but no motrin.

    I'm sure someone has some extra Motrin around. There's always one person.

    Im sure this goes with adults.. but they are not longer handing out antibiotic like candy to children because of the resistances to antibiotics. In most cases it will clear up by it self and your immune system just needs some time to fight it.

    My advice is to take an over the counter medicine to help with the symptoms and to take a supplement like Airborne or cold eez, and drink a lot of green tea.

    Ohh and btw eat more veggies and take more vitamins. Drink more water.

    I'm taking 6 grams (as in 6,000 mg) of vitamin C a day, drinking lots of fluid, an additional multi-vitamin, and getting lots of rest. Plus all the over the counter stuff.

    Well, until now -- I need to go into work for an important teleconference

    I do not trust any military doctors that are captains. Chances are that they are fresh out of med school and have no experiences yet and you are the lab rat they get to learn on.
