YES: Spontaneous CSF leaks do occur on occasion, and are often difficult to localize. They may be associated with postural headaches, dizziness, nausea, and visual changes. You describe symptoms which do not point toward CSF leak issues, and more likely sinus in origin.
Seek clarification with your doctor.
