I recently came down with this problem, and it's starting to effect my sleep.

I came down with a slight fever, ranging in the 99's about five days ago. Not thinking much of it, I just
took some Tylenol for the fever.

The fever did not go down, and after the third day after I had the fever, I went to see my doctor, and he said I had a sinus infection. He gave me some antibiotics, and I've been taking them since (it's the fifth day, so it's been two days since taking them), but my temperature hasn't changed =(

I'm starting to get worried; just what is wrong with me?

Hello and thank you for posting your medical question on E health forum.

There is no need to worry.

The antibiotics need a few days to control the infection.

Relax and complete the course of the antibiotics and also continue to take tylenol for the fever.

I hope this helps.
