Yep, my first sinus infection!! EGADS that hurt!! I still consider myself a bit of a baby because of the way I acted, but I'd NEVER had pain like that before!! My mother kept telling me to relax and it would feel a bit better (my mother lived with recurrent sinus infections for many years before she finally had surgery), and she was right, but I COULDN'T relax with that pain! lol Same with tooth abcesses. Anyway, if any of my patients have ANY type of pain, I medicate IMMEDIATELY or get someone to do it for me if I'm tied up in an emergency. Oh, and I had a percocet when I had that sinus infection, the pain was gone but OOOOhhhhhh the nausea!! It was bad!
I waited it out (about 1 1/2 days, literally, after only ONE percocet!), I was just glad the pain was gone, but I couldn't get out of bed. lol
