No other symptoms--I'm scared

I have had chronic stuffiness for the last 3-4 years, and no significant allergies (did the 62-item skin test). Actually I think I do react to some things, but the big issue is a few days ago I got completely blocked in my nose with sinus headache and eyelid/eyebrow pins&needles. Since then I havent left the house (I live alone) because I am very liteheaded and dizzy. I have, in the last 4 days: used vaporizor with white vingar, drenching furnace filter with white vinegar, taken SinoFresh nasal spray, salt/peroxide irrigation, limited decongestant, Benadryl, Advil when the headache is unbearable, hot showers, Mucinex, water, soup, juice, fruit, fresh veggie mix juice, etc, etc, etc, the works. But I have no fever and no colored mucus, except first thing in the morning when some mucus has come up that has solidified in the back of my throat. How long will this last if it's an allergy, and how can I get back on my feet? Unable to drive/too dizzy, and the ENT doctor appt isn't until the 13th of January. Please need help from this really useful board, thanks!

Re: No other symptoms--I'm scared

Sounds to me you have a blockage of your sinus passages to your frontal sinuses. You should call your ENT's office and tell them you really can't wait and that you are miserable. IN the mean time irrigate if you can, take a antihistimine and a decongestant might help as well! I have been dizzy for a year now and understand how you feel. There is treatment from this, it just might be that you need surgery to un block your sinuses, you'll just have to wait to see what your ENT thinks.

Re: No other symptoms--I'm scared

Thank you so much for the reply. I had sinus surgery 2 years ago--septoplasty and turbinectomy--allowed me to breathe and smell. Will the amoxycillin keep this from going into my chest? If I call the doc, I'm afraid I'll catch something worse in the clinic, today I cant stand up very long--too dizzy&liteheaded. Just scared cause I live alone and havent gone out in almost 5 days. Please reply--I just need support for the nite ahead.--trucky
