No...but. I agree with dr. Mcghee's answer. Dizziness can be caused by the medications you're taking to treat allergic rhinitis. Phenylephrine, the decongestant found in many over-the-counter & prescription oral medications for seasonal allergies can cause dizziness. If congestion is your main problem, topical antihistamine or corticosteroid sprays may be a better solution. They don't contain phenylephrine.

You should not assume that the dizziness is from allergies without an evaluation.
