Sinusitis

Question

Q.

Sinus and anxiety

My sinus problems started around the same time as my anxiety which is exactly 4 weeks ago. The symptoms are easing a bit i.e. ears no longer blocked, no congestion except some slight mucus in throat. I still have slight numbness to front of face and a slight light head at times, but better than a week ago. My doctor just prescribed me antibiotics (penicillin) and steroid nasal spray (Mometasone Furoate). However, I am reluctant to start as I don't know if there is a bacterial infection and the possible side effects may well outweigh the benefits. I am about to start taking citalopram as well 10mg. What do you think? I have a health anxiety, fear of not being able to breathe. Many thanks
