how can i cure dizziness and recurring sinus problems?

Good medical care: Often, sinus infections are not completely treated and therefore seem to constantly return when they have never completely gone. You must see an otolaryngologist or ENT physician to ensure that not only is the sinus infection completely treated, but the fluid in your sinuses or ears is gone as well.

The association of dizziness and alleged sinus infection is not common and may be unrelated. A viral infection may independently be present and cause both problems, Remember, the gold standard for the diagnosis of rhino-sinusitis is a CAT scan.

No: Sinus tachycardia is the normal fast heart rate that results from a stressful situation, physically or emotionally (running, being upset, having fever, etc...). Svt is an arrhythmia that usually requires abnormalities of the electrical conduction system of the heart, and if frequent and troubling needs directed treatment. Sinus tachycardia does not require treatment of its own usually.

Do seasonal allergies cause dizziness?

2 doctor answers6 doctors weighed in
Dr. Sean McGhee
Allergy and Immunology 23 years experience
Possibly: Occasionally, dizziness and vertigo might happen in conjunction with seasonal allergies, but it is not likely unless the allergy symptoms are very prominent (i.e. Itching, watery eyes, running nose, itching nose and throat, sneezing, nasal congestion), and even then, it's not common. You should not assume that the dizziness is from allergies without an evaluation.
