Hi just wanted to get a opinion on something that might be this so here I go,

I got sick in march 2010 with viral bronchitis and haven't been exactly the same since before I got sick, I never been in a hospital before which was the first time, I ended up gettin weird vision like sometimes blurry but not its like not the same and I'm better now just don't really wanna do much or go out much I'm always sitting around even tho I have in the past during winter months but still don't feel the same like I used to when I used to sit around , idk if its boredom or what my doctors told me its boredom and its gets to me, I went to a phscratrist and he said there's no signs of depression but im gettin anxiety from cigarettes , which I don't smoke anymore so I went back to him and told him my anxiety got better on Klonopin but didn't help my driving anxiety much so I got a eeg of my head and everything came up normal , so then recently I been gettin headaches once and awhile and still this weird vision , I had everything done even chiropractor , so I been thinking it might have something to do with Sinuses causing me to get fatigue and headaches and feeling summed out , as of now I'm mostly lazy a bit and bummed out like i don't wanna do anything , so is it Sinuses ?, boredom?, that's causing me to feel bummed out and lazy? Or could It be something else? I have been feeling a bit better but it seems like its taking awhile I also got thyroid takin also which can up good, and I'm healthy , so if anyone could give me opinions or help I would highly appreciate the help , I am currently on antibiotics for Sinuses and gettin ct of face soon

I have been struggling with a sinus infection for a year and a half.  The ENT doc found the sinus infection with a head CT, because my main complaint was headache, and put me on antibiotics.  Antibiotics, even two rounds, didn't stop them from coming back.  I kept on treating with antibiotics for about an infection every month until a few weeks ago.
Then my allergist said I might be also having yeast or mold problems.  She put me on a sinus wash - 50 ml water (about 2 cups) + 1 tsp salt + 1 tsp baby shampoo.  I use my tiny teapot like a "netti pot."
Tha allergist has me taking Diflucan daily, stepping down over a couple of months.  I also have a sinus rinse made of Bactrim nasal gel in saline - heated 30 sec or so in microwave to melt the parafin carirer which sticks to the glass cup I heat in, then poured back into the saline spray bottle.
I was feeling very poorly and getting worse with the infections.  I'm quite suddenly feeling a lot better, but probably have a way to go.  These infections can get settled in and become a "plaque" that is hard to remove, needs antibiotics to kill it - hence the Bactrim rinse.
Of course I've also been through al sorts of blood testing, thyroid, vitamin E, CBC and diff ...
The baby shampoo will prevent a plaque from forming but according to articles, won't kill it off by itself.
