See your doc: A lingering cough after an urti can mean a sinus infection or reactive airways, such as asthma. You need to see your doctor to determine what the problem is. An antibiotic should help if there is a sinus infection but will not help if it is asthma. Read more

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

Been having each ache, sinus pressure, face pain, nasal drainiage, ears feel plugged up, dizzy/lightheaded, fatigue, headache for 3-4 weeks. Dr gave me Flonase 3 weeks ago no help. What is it?

Been having each ache, sinus pressure, face pain, nasal drainiage, ears feel plugged up, dizzy/lightheaded, fatigue, headache for 3-4 weeks. Dr gave me Flonase 3 weeks ago no help. What is it?

Sinus infection: It sounds like you have a sinus infection. Flonase will not be enough. You need an antibiotic that is very effective for the sinus like Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) 875mg two times a day for 2 weeks. You also need an sinus decongestant like claritin-d 12 hour also twice a day. On top of that you should use a saline nasal rinse like the neti pot several times a day. Once things settle down then the Flonase will work. 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?

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

I have brain fog, dizziness and ear pain and sinus pressure. What does this sound like? I've had it on and off for 3 years now.

Thyroxine can cause anxiety which may cause dizziness and brain fog feeling. See Endocrinologist for Thyroid status and Diabetes status as Thyroxine may interfere with blood glucose control and reduce the effectiveness of Lantus (insulin glargine); and Treatment.

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!

I currently have a concussion from a head injury 5 days ago. Today I've developed a low grade fever, sinus congestion with no dripping, dizziness, & spinning sensation, in addition to my already prevalent headache. Is this normal?

I currently have a concussion from a head injury 5 days ago. Today I've developed a low grade fever, sinus congestion with no dripping, dizziness, & spinning sensation, in addition to my already prevalent headache. Is this normal?

No: The dizziness and headaches perhaps but the sinus congestion and low grade fever no. I suspect that you are catching a cold as well but it is best to double check with your doctor ASAP to make sure that you do not have anything more serious such as subdural hematoma. Read more
