(This is in response to the BlogHer challenge to write during the month of August on the topic of “hot”.)
Well, this is a “hot” I had not thought about until today. I have been fighting a sinus infection but today, it won.
This sinus infection fooled me for a little while. It really started with my teeth on the left upper side hurting. This has happened to me before and I did not remember right away that it can be a sign of a sinus infection. The irritation would come and go so I ignored it. This has gone on for a week or two.
Last night the whole thing came to a head. I was awakened at 11:30 with pain. I got up, used a sinus rinse, took some pain meds, and even got an ice pack and put it on my face. It worked pretty well. But this morning it came back with a vengeance. I had to go out for work and it was really painful. It hit me that I could stop by the CVS Minute Clinic.
So now I have an antibiotic that should start working in 3-4 days. I have the ice pack all set and the sinus rinse won’t be forgotten. I am hoping that it won’t take 3-4 days to calm the situation down.
After all, I have other “hot” things to write about!
Thanks for reading!
