heh.. you nailed it... I have asthma too and when I started having breathing problems constantly I figured something was up... I just had no idea exactly what was up.. none of the usual signs were showing up untill saturday and then WHAM..
wow....you have asthma and you were sick and you waited that long! lol I run to the doctor like a baby as soon as I have unusual amounts of trouble breathing. I don't feel like ending up in the hospital for it again....lol.
...I did wait too long to see a doctor about it. I thought it was just a really bad headache that wouldn't go away. But yeah, I remember the thinking my head was going to pop every time I bent over thing too. Bleah. Do you have to do the saline rinse thing?
This is pretty much what happened to me. I was in my 40s when I got the first sinus infection of my life, didn't know what it was. After 8 days of a headache that had me on my knees, I finally go to the Dr. The next day after starting antibiotics, headache's gone. I got pretty good at siphoning salt water up the old nostrils. Got to be careful not to make it too strong, or it BURNS...
