    Hello Tara


    Your wording is interesting as it implies that you and your boyfriend have the same immune system?  How would you getting a sinus infection harm your boyfriend's immune system?


    Did the doctor say that this was something contagious that you too are spreading between you? 


    If the antibiotics helped...that would indicate that you were on the right track in treating whatever this is. 


    This is one of those things where you may need another doctor's opinion.  It would be impossible for anyone to give you a diagnosis on the internet.


    I hope you two feel better soon.
