MILEY SINUS EMERGENCY

Miley Cyrus
' hospitalization was triggered by a sinus infection gone horribly wrong, TMZ has learned.

Reps for Miley tell us, the singer got an Rx for an antibiotic called cephalexin (brand name Keflex) to treat a sinus infection after getting diagnosed last week in North Carolina.

We're told within days Miley's throat swelled to the point she could barely talk. She was rushed to the hospital Tuesday night and, according to her rep, doctors determined she had an extreme allergic reaction to the drug.

We're told Miley never got a cephalexin script before so she had no idea she was allergic.

She'll remain hospitalized until her condition improves. Her doctor says an allergic reaction of this kind can last 27 days.

I hope she reads the comments, learns from them, and gives up the abuse of choice. She is lucky her body gave her a good stern warning. Btw, I only mention that she reads the comments because all these hanger on peeps that cling on to her surely do. The whole listening to doctors advice usually gets ignored. Foolish. Beiber and Miley and Selena all need a major time out. Good luck to all.

"We're told within days Miley's throat swelled" --- allergic reactions don't take days to appear lol.

Riiiight, 27 days to recover, huh? Not 26, not 28, not 2 or 3 weeks, but 27 days.

I smell more B.S. An allergic reaction to a drug would be immediate, not days after.

Throat swelling is usually anaphylaxis shock which occurs immediately to a few hours of ingesting the drug. Not days later. The recovery time frame is also fairly long and fairly close to a 28 day rehab stint. Just sayin'.
