See a doctor: It is possible that you have sinusitis. Treatment depends on the cause, wether viral or bacterial, or if it is just a case of allergies. So please see a doctor to determine the cause and treat. Saline flushes, at least twice a day should help in either case. ...Read more

I have sinus pressure and congestion, foggy headed and slightly dizzy alot.I avoid decongestants because of blood pressure issues.What else can I use?

Nasal products: If you have poorly controlled high bp, you are right to avoid decongestants containing Ephedrine or pseudoephedrine. You can safely use anti-histamines (eg loratidine). You can also use nasal steroids or nasal saline rinse. If your BP is well-controlled, short term use of the full range of decongestants is probably fine. ...Read more

After shower, pulse goes up to 100-115bpm, & i feel dizzy, tired. My head feels heavy (sinus pressure) - CBC all normal, ekg, no fever or other issues. Very dry in house, history of panic attacks.

Hmmm: Most common things being common, dehydration is the first possibility. The bot water raises your temperature and your body adjusts by relaxing the blood vessels near your skin to increase heat loss. This can cause light-headedness as your blood pressure comes down, and heart increases its rate to compensate. Hydrate better, and watch over-heating. If no better or persists, back to the doctor! ...Read more

You : You are describing symptoms that could be ascribed to many different health problems. The role of your internist is to take a thorough history and perform a focused physical exam which will pinpoint the likely cause of your multiple symptoms. As the possibilities are numerous and vary from seasonal allergies, menopause, influenza or other upper respiratory illness, hypertension, transient ischemic attacks, hypoglycemia etc your best bet is to get a thorough exam as soon as possible. ...Read more

Can sinus pressure/problems cause neurological symptoms like difficulty thinking or dizziness? I am also having popping on the right side of my jaw.

Can sinus pressure/problems cause neurological symptoms like difficulty thinking or dizziness?  I am also having popping on the right side of my jaw.

Maybe: Certainly can cause dizziness due to inner ear being affected. Pain from sinus pressure can make it difficult to focus or concentrate. Jaw popping most likely due to TMJ issue and not sinuses. You need thorough history and eval by doc to help sort this out for you. Hope this helps. Best of luck. Dr. R ...Read more

Used Neti pot for 1st time. Felt weird! Have bad sinus pressure & dizziness from getting over sinus infection. How many Neti uses until I feel better?

Used Neti pot for 1st time. Felt weird! Have bad sinus pressure & dizziness from getting over sinus infection. How many Neti uses until I feel better?

Not many: Severe congestion may not be solved by saline alone. A short prednisone course is often given along with antibiotics for acute sinus infection. Continue the Neti-pot as it will help long-term to keep mucosa moist and healthier and to prevent future infection. Sometimes the squeeze bottle is preferred since velocity of irrigation can be controlled. ...Read more
