Yes... But : If you have all those diagnosis the underplaying cause is an infection, which can spread, to the lung. Sinusitis can lead to post nasal drip and cause shortness of breath, but so can a bronchitis or pneumonia.... If you don't get better shortly or get worse head back over to his office. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Dr said I have chronic sinusitis/allergic rhinitis. What's difference? She used terms interchangeably. What's best next step post-diagnosis?
Linked but not same.: Allergic rhinitis (AR) occurs when you breathe in something to which you are allergic (indoor or outdoor allergens), and the inside of your nose becomes inflamed and swollen. Sinusitis is an inflammation of the lining inside the sinuses which can be acute or chronic. AR and sinusitis are linked to each other, because AR causes your nose to become blocked, and in turn blocks the sinuses. ...Read more

Allergic rhinitis and sinusitis. Went from loratadine claratin To Zyrtec To finally Xyzal (levocetirizine). The first 2 meds didn't help much. Is Xyzal (levocetirizine) more effective?
Allergy treatment: Basically, claritin, loratidine, zyrtec, allegra and xyzal (levocetirizine) are all 2nd generation antihistamines. If your symptoms are not controlled on these, you may need to be given intranasal steroids like flonase, nasonex or other treatments like singular, and also trying regular nasal saline. If still no improvement, time to see the allergist. ...Read more

Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) : Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) should be cleared from your system about 6 to 12 hours after taking it. I am concerned that your symptoms may have been from something other than an Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) allergy; which is usually characterized by a rash, hives, or in more severe cases shortness of breath. Dizziness, vomiting, lethargy, and nausea sound more like a gastroenteritis or stomach flu. If you are not better by now, you should visit your primary care provider for a follow up visit. Take care. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not if treated: The sinus inflammation caused by allergies makes a great environment for bacteria to grow. That is why people with uncontrolled allergies are at greater risk for sinus infections, and wind up taking antibiotics more often than non-allergic people. Keeping the allergies under good control by avoiding your allergens and using nasal steroid sprays will help prevent recurrent infections. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Does latest research now say that chronic sinusitis is caused by immunity or allergy problems rather than by improperly treated acute sinusitis?
Acute Sinusitis: Greetings. With an acute infection, medical treatment such as a course of antibiotics, saline nasal irrigation, ibuprophen and a mucus thinner such as Mucinex (guaifenesin) would be my recommendation.
