A 34-year-old member asked:

can allergies cause constant head pressure and tinnitus?

3 doctor answers9 doctors weighed in
Dr. Michael P Vaughn
Allergy and Immunology 34 years experience
Yes: The accurate evaluation of this problem will require a physical examination by a healthcare provider. Allergy testing can be done by either skin testing or blood testing (rast).
Dr. Jack Mutnick
Allergy and Immunology 17 years experience
Absolutely: The ears and ear tubes are intimately associated and connected to the sinuses. And head pressure could actually be sinus pressure.
Dr. Martin Ostro
Allergy and Immunology 49 years experience
Not tinnitus: Allergic nasal disease (rhinitis) if poorly controlled for several days can lead to obstruction of drainage of sinuses leading to pressure/pain in the head but tinnuitus rarely, if ever, is part of this condition. Advise seeing primary care provider and consider neurology and/or ENT consult.
