    I have a head cold that seems to have settled in the left side of my head and face. My left eye is watery and it hurts. My left ear hurts and I have a left sided headache. I think it's the pressure that is causing the discomfort. My Dr. said to try MUCINEX D Extra Strength before taking a prescription. It works! I can tell a big difference. So if you can take OTC meds, this one seems to be a pretty good one.

    The box says Maximum Strength not Extra Strength.

    I can't have anything with penicillin in it, but i find the natural herbal remedy. breath easy is really good for clearing the sinuses. I suffer with cronic sinsitus some times and that is the only thing I can use, just a couple of drops on you collar and you breath it in all day, same with your nighty a couple of drops and you sleep all night.

    I am just getting over a cold now that I have had 3 weeks. As usual, my asthma flared up but this time I also got a sinus infection. The left side of my face under my cheek was so sore along with under my eyes. I have not had a sinus infection in ages. I forgot how much it hurts.

    Sinus infections do hurt your face and you feel miserable.

    Mucinex does work really good. The one thing the doctor said is that even if you think you're drinking enough water - drink more. So any time I take that, I drink a ton and it helps so much.

    Hope everyone is feeling better soon. :thumbup:

    I've had the same stuff and my doc recommended that also. Do be aware though if you have high blood pressure, do not take the one with the DM in it. It can cause havoc with your blood pressure. :(
