First, I’ve never had any luck with my sinuses. I’m forever getting sinus infections, and most of the time I can deal with them just fine; this one hurts not as much as my Christmas one, but more than most. As with the Christmas one, I’ve got a toothache that saunters around before deciding where to strike. In any case, what this one lacks in oral ferocity it more than makes up in buccal tightness and splitting headaches. In short, it sucks.
My first ever involved a visit to the doctor because half my forehead was swollen. When she came into the room her first words were “Whoa! That looks like it hurts! What’re you doing for pain?!”. The last major one they needed to see me because, apparently, they can’t call in a prescription for anything stronger than hydrocodone to a pharmacy.
Back I go to spitting up purulent sputum.
