Question Sinus and allergies cause dizziness???

I have had a sinus infection for 3 weeks and for the past three days I have had to either sit or lie down almost all day because of dizziness. Is that usual for sinus infections or allergies? If it is what can I do to help it. I started taking sudafed 30mg of pseudophedrine.

Also It gives me a headache to be around the bright outside lights too long also. Is that normal?

Re: Sinus and allergies cause dizziness???

Hello,
Yes that is very normal , i had that problem myself many times , are you taking antibiotic's for your sinus infection? If not you should go and tell your doc all the symptoms you are having so that he can perscribe them if need be. The tiny tubes that run from your ears to the back of the throat become filled with fluid and that is what makes you dizzy feeling , trying not to blow your nose forcefully helps as that blows fluid in your ears too.

Re: Sinus and allergies cause dizziness???

I have been feeling dizzy a lot over the last few months and have had periods like this for 5-6 years now. I was originally diagnosed (6 years ago) with Labrynthitis (basically fluid in the ear from an ear infection), and a few days ago I saw my Dr because of worsening hayfever/sinus problems, with one of the most annoying sypmtoms being dizziness. My Dr said it is quite common for allergies to cause dizziness.

yes during my allergic reaction i had dizziness too and doctor said it is becaue the nasal passage and the inner ear gets swollen or inflamed as a response to allergens so due to that one feels dizzy. You should mention all your symptoms to your doctor and he is the best person to tell if that is the case or something else.

Re: Sinus and allergies cause dizziness???

Thanks everyone. I just wanted to make sure that is a normal symptom. I go to the ENT in 3 weeks and I will be able to find out what is wrong with me then. Thanks again.
