I have sinusitis for 4weeks and sometimes i have post nasal drip and with it i feel nausea and sometimes vomit. is that normal on post nasal drip?

I was diagnosed with sinusitis. Blood results; platelets are a bit low. My symptoms are fever aches pains clear diherrea nausea. Was my diagnosis true?

I do not know: Sinusitis diagnosis is made on clinical exam most often, and can be supplemented with a CT scan as well. Certainly diarrhea and nausea are not often associated with diarrhea, but that does not mean you did not have a sinus infection on top of those symptoms as well. ...Read more

Acid reflux, chronic sinusitis, sleep apnea and lack of sleep. Are they responsible for my dizziness and nausea?

They can be: Lack of oxygen can be a factor in all of your symptoms. Is the chronic sinusitis due to obstructions ( polyps) or a deviated septum? Has your sleep apnea been diagnosed by a witnessed overnight sleep centered study? If so have you been advised to wear a cpap? If so , are you? If not, in mild to moderate cases, a dental device can be custom made to reduce the obstruction. ...Read more
