Of course avoidance of allergens is a must if possible( cat , carpet, pollen etc). If not better , go to your PCP if you can take singulair too. ...Read more

1.Acute bronchitis, 
2.Allergic rhino laryngitis, CT scan report:mild mucosal  thickening in bilateral maxillary sinuses.Still same prb after treatment.

Allergy testing: In allergic rhinitis, it would not be unusual to only have mild mucosal thickening on ct scan. That's good news... You don't have sinusitis or some other process going on! if 3-4 weeks of regular nasal steroid spray doesn't help, (must be used as prescribe to work) then you may want to see an allergist for formal allergy testing. ...Read more

Does maxillary sinusitis cause vertigo? Is vertigo ever caused by sinusitis of the maxillary sinuses?

Does maxillary sinusitis cause vertigo?       Is vertigo ever caused by sinusitis of the maxillary sinuses?

Maybe: A bad sinus infection can inflammation of the upper airway which includes the eustachian tube. This will lead to inadequate opening of the eustachian tube which then cause negative pressure in the middle ear space, which can affect the inner ear and balance center, ultimately causing vertigo. Although this can happen, this is not a common presentation of sinusitis. An ENT evaluation will help. ...Read more
