Red face Can my sinuses make me this dizzy?

Can my sinuses being messed up and my ear being slightly clogged make me this dizzy? Well, things aren't moving around me, I feel like I am swaying or something. Has been going on for some time and seem to be much worse when my sinuses are acting up. Help!!
All tests came back clear too.

Yes sinus problems can cause dizziness. A stuffy nose leads to stuffy ears. It sounds like you may have a problem with you eustachian tubes. The pressure in your middle ear is not the same as the outside pressure causing you to feel dizzy. I'm going through that right now. My eustachian tubes are not working properly because of allergies.

UGH! I hear ya. They are driving me NUTS. Especially on the right side. Stupid ENT told me I had TMJD. Yea..that causes a person to get so sick every 2 weeks. He is an idiot. He barely looked at me. I may have tmjd which causes my jaw to crunch, but that is not what is causing everything else. I have no other discomfort that would be associated with TMJD.

Anyways...it seems like when I can keep spitting the **** out when my head is draining...that my tube feels like it is draining too. But not all the way. WILL IT EVER GO AWAY!???? What can we do?????

BTW...it also feels like the inside of my ear is wet when they start to feel better. But when i check to see I dont feel anything wet. I hate this. I feel like I can't live my life the way I used to . The nausea, dizziness, unbalanced feeling. This sucks.

I know how you feel. Everytime I swallow my ears crackle. I went to an ENT specialist and he put me on Nasonex. I've been taking it for 1 1/2 months now but no real change. I've been taking an antihistamine as well to see if it will help but it has only been 2 days. Everytime I'm in a car I have to leave the windows down a bit because I really feel the pressure while driving. The dizziness is worse in the car because of the pressure. It feel like I'm on a plane ( not as much pressure but still an uncomfortable amount) Does this happen with you?
Do you get congestion,sinus pain and headaches?
