I'm lightheaded and woozy all the time. Could this be due to my allergies?

In brief: Dizzy with allergies
The inner ear houses the balance center; any condition that affects this area can cause dizziness & feeling "woozy".
Things that affect the inner ear include allergies, infections, and eustachian tube dysfunction (where the "safety valve" for the ear doesn't equalize pressure very well). However, lightheadedness can also be due to other problems, so checking with your doctor is recommended.

In brief: Allergies or meds
Such symptoms could be due to allergic nasal disease, if nasal symptoms are not well controlled.
Alternatively, allergy meds can also cause such symptoms. Talk to your doctor about medications to control allergies that would not have such side effects.
