Last October, I began to experience increased fatigue going home to go to bed, increased pain in my joints, increased vertigo, wheezing, and coughing. After Thanksgiving, I suddenly experienced something that looked like "pink eye" at the same time I seemed to be having an onset of a sinus infection. The doctor gave me drops and had me stay home a day or two. When I returned to work, my sinuses were draining; I had the sinus pressure between and around my eyes, and an increasing productive cough. The cough became worse and went into bronchitis. What I experienced was diagnosed as sinusitis and bronchitis.
By the middle of December, I developed a painful
rash/bumps in the roof of my mouth, around my upper
lips (including swelling), inside my right nostril,
and in my right eye. The doctor diagnosed me with
Shingles, prescribed an antiviral medication and
took me off work. Between the sinusitis and bronchitis,
I was going into coughing spasms to where I could
barely breathe. I was not able to sleep at night.
The shingles in the mouth prevented me from eating
solid food. I was prescribed a broad spectrum antibiotic
on Christmas Eve. By the first week in January,
I returned to the doctor who changed the antibiotic
as there was no change, and I could barely walk.
By the end of January, he prescribed two antibiotics
and felt I had a bacterial sinus infection. He
referred me to an ENT for a culture. The culture
came back with Staph, two different types of Pseudomonas,
and a fungus. The bacteria were 90% resistant to
most antibiotics and I was switched to two different
antibiotics. It was noted that I had a deviated
septum. I took two courses of the antibiotics before
I felt better.
