Went to my dr today with symptoms of dizziness and she said frontal sinus infection and i passed the nuerological test. Does this mean inner ear ok?

Vertigo: Dizziness and vertigo go hand in hand. With inflammation of the inner ear that can be the result of sinus problems, can get these symptoms. Because of the problem in the inner ear, the brain finds it hard to coordinate visual cues with those related to gravity and orientation. The small room may be worse because your balance system is more "stressed" visually. ...Read more

Possible: The important question to be addressed is are your symptoms of frontal sinusitis being relieved. Although you may be getting better, the proper length of time to be on an antibiotic is at least 7 days and Prednisone for 5 -6 days. How was the diagnosis of frontal sinusitis made, by simple clinical exam or by cat scan? Hacking up clear mucus may only indicate a viral infection. ...Read more

A year ago, i was treated for a klebsiella sinus infection, now i've been diagnosed with a frontal sinus staph infection. Is this common/normal?

A year ago, i was treated for a klebsiella sinus infection, now i've been diagnosed with a frontal sinus staph infection. Is this common/normal?

No: This is quite unusual. Either there is something amiss with your immune system, you have had chronic problems with your sinuses, have been treated with too many antibiotics, or have some other unusual problem. Sinus infections, when bacterial, are commonly due to the normal flora of the nasopharynx (pneumococci, strep, hemophilus, and so on). ...Read more
