After a boatload of tests and all coming back normal including sinus x rays, cardiology tests, and even a neurologist that had me scared that I had MS....I INSISTED on a sinus Ct scan, from my ENT.....

The ENT a first class quack that didn't bother to read the entire report said it was normal. I went and got my medical records and read them all. It turns out the ct scan was abnormal, frontal and ethmoid sinuses were almost completely blocked causing pressure on my eyes and that's what caused the shimming of the vision and lightheadedness....I suffered with this for a miserable 9 MONTHS!!!

Prior to all this I went to my dentist for a routine cleaning and explained all this to him and he prescribes a 10 day round of amoxicillian....symptoms cleared up for a few days then came back. After researching this on line for weeks, I found where I needed a stronger antibiotic. I went back to the quack ENT and told him I needed Augmentin and I wanted a 2 week round. He gave me a hard time and said he would give me 7 days.

I read if you don't completely kill the bacteria in full the first time around it comes back and more resistant so I INSISTED on a 2 week round and had to threaten him that if he did not comply with my request based on the info I had I was going to turn him in to the AMA and whoever else I could think of

He reluctantly and with an attitude prescribed what I asked for
After I finished the antibiotics and 2 days after....ALL SYMPTOMS DISAPPEARED AND NEVER CAME BACK!!!!!!!!!

I STONGLY URGE YOU TO GET YOUR OWN MEDICAL RECORDS AND DO RESEARCH ON THE INTERNET. if you can switch ent's and find a good one DO IT!!...YOU CAN READ REVIEWS OF WHAT OTHER PEOPLE HAVE TO SAY ABOUT ANY DOCTOR IN YOUR STATE AT RATEMDS DOT COM

BEST OF LUCK TO YOU AND HOPE THEY DON'T MAKE YOU SUFFER FOR ALMOST AN ENTIRE YEAR LIKE I DID

A lot of so called doctors out there don't know squat....I found that I know more about my problems than they do, they just want your insurance money and when you leave their office you are out of their minds.


I forst started asking question with a pharmacist and he is the one that steered me in the right direction.....


Hope you feel better soon!!
