Eustachian problem: The eustachian tube's purpose is to allow air to pass freely between the throat and the middle ear. When this tube gets blocked by a cold virus or allergy, then air can't get into the ear and pressure or even pain results. In kids this often lead to infection but that's much less common in adults. Only time will make this better. If not improved in 2-4 weeks, or if pain is severe, see a doctor ...Read more

Pressure in the ear: Is associated with problem in the eustachian tube...the opening from the back of the throat to the middle ear. Its function is to equalize pressure in the middle ear. Altitutde changes, infections, allergies, accumulation of ear wax are all causes of dysfunction of the eustachian tube. Your recent URI likely is a factor. Apply hot compress over the ear, take OTC decongestant. See doc if persists. ...Read more

This can result in referred pain/pressure to the face and jaw/teeth. See your oral surgeon or ENT for a diagnosis. ...Read more

Virus? Allergy?: These symptoms are most suggestive of a viral infection or allergy; may not respond to any antibiotic. Sometimes doctors try prescribing azithromycin or other antibiotics, in the hope they might help -- but knowing they may not. Probably you'll just have to wait til it clear on its own, treating with decongestants, aspirin, etc to control symptoms. But ask your doctor if concerned or in doubt. ...Read more

My head hurts when I bend over. Is this from my sinus issues or would that be considered a Migraine Headache?

My head hurts when I bend over. Is this from my sinus issues or would that be considered a Migraine Headache?

Sinus: Migraine is not brought on by positional changes and pressure. That is classic sinus headache. It still hurts and it's not easy to find a way to 'cure'. You are doing good things with irrigation and the antibiotic for times it flares up into an infection. Keep trying ways to avoid allergens, etc. I know how painful it can be - Best wishes. ...Read more

I've been feeling light headed and a little confused for a couple of days, now the left side of my head hurts when I bend over. What can this be?

I've been feeling light headed and a little confused for a couple of days, now the left side of my head hurts when I bend over. What can this be?

A reason to see a Dr: To be correctly diagnosed, you need to see a doctor for an exam. There's no way to tell w/o one. It could be as simple as sinus or as complicated as a cardio-vascular issue - or anything between. Have an exam. If that leads to a need for lab work or imaging, follow the steps toward a Dx and Treatment plan. I hope it's simple but whatever it is, early attention will be best. ...Read more

Hit my head very hard on a car trunk 5 hrs ago - no symptoms, but now have a sore spot on one side when I touch it & also hurts when I bend over. Ok?

Contusion: Most likely. Put a cold pack on the sore spot so you don't get a lump, and don't take any aspirin (which can increase the bleeding). If you develop dizziness, nausea/vomiting, or difficulty concentrating be sure to see your doctor. Soreness should slowly resolve over the next few days. ...Read more

Would a sinus headache (it hurts when I bend over and my head feels stuffy) account for shortness if breath and a lightheaded feeling?

Would a sinus headache (it hurts when I bend over and my head feels stuffy) account for shortness if breath and a lightheaded feeling?

No: Sinus infection should not cause shortness of breath. The sinuses are in the face and head and should not affect breathing unless you also have nasal congestion associated with the sinusitis. But nasal congestion should only produce nasal obstruction and not shortness of breath. Light headedness is non-specific and is rarely due to sinus inflammation. ...Read more
