I had a horrible sinus infection Like I was coughing

Patient

Q: I had a horrible sinus infection. Like I was coughing up drainage that had settled in my chest for 8 days. I then went to my PCP. She gave me 500mg of amoxicillin 3 times a day for 10 days. I followed those instructions to the t. If anything I wad worse for those 10 days. A few days after the antibiotics were completed I started have a horrible headache. I still have the horrible headache and still jave the drainage. My neck and lower back have hurt for the last three days. Now the last few days it hurts to move my eyes back and forth and they cant stand to look at anything bright. My copay is kind of expensive. Should make another trip to my PCP do you think?
