SO who else has the "Crud" aka sinus infection, flu like symptoms

So I have been fighting this for three weeks and it just wont go away. I have flu like or cold like syptoms. Stuffy head, sinus drainage and headaches behind my eye and now my teeth hurt. Yeah I know stop whinning.
Been to the doctor. I have some meds now but a virus can not be stopped by antibiotics, antibiotics only work on bacteria. So if anyone has any suggestions. I am tired of taking dayquill and nyquill and Halls. My head is killing. Fluids and rest and vitamins I know.
Help!!!!!

I live w/ this crap and my last bout was like two weeks ago. I got some 400 mg Avelox tab's and it knocked it right out of me!

Suckers are high-priced, but they do the job for me!!

And drink plenty of WATER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PS., I usually start w/ like a 1000 mg of Asprin twice to three time's a day until my stomach back's up on me! And if that doesn't get it, I go for the Avelox.

I had the same dang thing a couple of weeks ago. After suffering for almost three weeks, thinking that a cold should go away after 7-10 days, wifee convinced me to go see a doctor. Yep, sure enough, sinus infection was the diagnosis. Got a script for antibiotics and a decongestant and got to feeling better in a few days. Good luck and hope you get better!

oh yeah, and dring lots of water

I just got over a nasty sinus infection this week. Headache, sore throat, nasty yellow/green/brown phlem comin up all day and night, general feeling of crappiness....It lasted about a week, didnt miss any work but I should have. Mucinex helped, so did the Excedrin, and the Nyquil. I can still feel my throat a little bit in the morning, but its almost healed now..

I rarely ever get sick, but at least when I do get sick I get over it in a relatively short time. I'm sure that will change as I age.

I had a horrible case of the flu from Monday night to Thursday afternoon. I hit 103.7* I'm still coughing my lungs out though.

I don't know about everywhere else, but this season there are TONS of people getting the flu around here. Half the people I know have come down with it in the last month. No joke.

Worst part for me though is, I was cocky about it since I haven't been sick beyond a few sniffles in the last 3 years.....then I get it.

It was quite possibly the longest lasting flu/cold I have ever had in 40 years. It started with body aches, fever and sneezing. A few days later the fever broke but the symptoms were still there, eventually the pain and aches went away.

About a week after the pain subsided, I developed the nasty green tar cough, the one that is nearly black when you wake up. About two weeks later that went away, I kid you not, after over a month I STILL have a cough.

It's almost like asthma, I exhale slowly and I have a light wheeze and that triggers the cough, pain in the a**!

I had that about 5-6 years ago. Doctor wouldn't give me antibiotics because they weren't needed. It lasted 6 weeks and each week was a different symptom. I couldn't hear for a week(that's not too bad, you can ignore people at work), couldn't smell or taste for a week(that sucked, tasting food is a good thing). I've had thick mucous problems ever since that illness.
