Yes! Felt rubbish at 1st but was too busy today to feel sorry for myself grin . Thanks for making me go.

So did you go or not? smile

I have preschoolers so can't call in sick the days I have them!

A true sinus infection is ghastly and needs rest rest rest. Especially after three weeks.... It means your body isn't kicking the damn thing and needs more (and maybe antiobiotics)

Sounds like where I worked Art.

I would go in. Unless I can't stand from dizziness or am vomiting I would be at work. More than 3 days of a year and I would be interviewed to see why

Why would going in today make you ill again though?

I am only speaking from experience though. Where i used to work all sick days were logged, and if you had so many you had to have an interview with the line manager etc.....

Are you saying you have had one day off, following three weeks of a sinus infection which you worked through?

If you still feel pants, I would stay off.....

Ps FWIW stay off all dairy too....

Sorry you feel bad but yes I would go in to work. If you haven't showered yet maybe having a long hot shower might help, the steam always helps my sinuses.

I realise how pathetic I am reading other threads on General Health! I've felt better a few times in the past 3 weeks only to get ill again so still not sure. hmmmmm

Having had sinusitis too many times to remember I would stay off

yep go in

If it's nothing serious you should go in. Have you got that Friday feeling by any chance?

I was off yesterday after being ill with sinusitis and general feeling crap for about 3 weeks. Feel a bit better but don't want to go in then get ill again. I know its nothing serious! Need to decide soon though!confused confused
