There are many unanswered questions here. Has a cat scan of the sinuses by done? How extensive is the sinusitis? What sinuses are involved? In general chronic sinus infection does not lead to loss of balance.
Finally, balloon sinoplasty will only enlarge the openings of the maxillary or frontal sinuses. If you have polypoid or cystic disease of the sinuses, this technique may not work. ...Read more

I have had a lot of head/ nasal congestion for a week. Now everytime I bite down I hear a balloon or drum tapping sound. Why? What should I take?
Fluid in ear: Those symptoms suggest you have fluid in the ear or sinuses or both. It's a common complication of a cold. If you're otherwise healthy and not having high fevers, you can try over-the-counter decongestants for a few days to see if it clears. If not, it's sometimes helped with antibiotics. I'd seek help right away, though, if you get a fever over 100, or you have loss of hearing. ...Read more
Balloon pump: If you do not take your mouth off of a balloon pump you may deplete the oxygen in a closed space and get lightheaded. Most people will take a few breaths blow up a little then take a few more breaths and repeat. Lack of oxygen will eventually cause people to pass out. As the carbon dioxide level raises in the blood the desire to breath increases and the person will breathe faster. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Swelling of the lips: Typically denotes angioedema, which is a hypersensitivity reaction that can be life threatening should it progress to the entire airway/throat. Most of the time it will stop once the reactant in question is out of his system, typically 2-4 days after the last ingestion or exposure. I would stop whatever it is he suspected was the cause and take some benadryl (diphenhydramine) over the counter. ...Read more
