So I posted last night that I have a sinus/upper respiratory infection and that the right side of my face was throbbing. When I got up this morning the right side of my face is a little swollen and the yellow that is coming out of my nose and when I cough is coming out of my eyes. How bad is this and what should I do? It's of course a holiday weekend and cant go to the doc today.

Def. run to the drug store and get one of those sinus rinsing kits! I had a super bad sinus infection in Jan. and that thing was a life saver! The first time you do it, I recommend doing it in the shower because it's going to be really nasty!

sounds like you've got a massive sinus infection. I wouldn't be surprised if your ears aren't infected too at this point.

I know they said Tylenol, but motrin is ibuprofen which I know I cant take. I will look at the list of med's I can take that they gave me and see if there is any sinus med's on it.
