dizzy spell when blowing nose

I have suffered with depression and anxiety disorder for ten years so thats why im freaking out about this. However this last week i got a bad sinus infection low grade fever, brain fog, body aches, fluid in the ears, all that fun stuff. anyways i just started an antibiotic yestarday and i woke up today to blow my nose. well when i did this my right ear clogged up and all of a sudden probably only for 5 seconds the whole room started to spin and i put my head down cause i was for sure i felt like to pass out but i didnt. Then my ear made like a suction popping sound and i was fine. Just curious to see if this is normal or if it could lead to something serious like a seizure or something

Sinus infections can cause problems within the inner ear, which can cause dizziness. Unless the vertigo continues, there's probably no problem-- just a symptom of the infection.
