: Help! (I hope this is not a duplicate of my recent posting I don't know where it went). Seems like when I get sinus troubles my body feels as if it is rocking backing and forth. I want to say shaking sometimes too. Went to doctor several times, and since this seems to happen more when I turn my head he says don't turn my head that way. Lots of help right!? Anyway I just wanted to see if anybody is going through what I am feels sometimes when I stand up the floor goes up and down and legs don't feel sturdy is this a inner ear problem or what? Went to ER several times nothing found. This really happens when I lay down on my side feels like a shaking rocking attack! PLEASE HELP!!!!
Hi Tired or C. Williams, I think you need to find a new doc! ENT docs don't really know a thing about the nature of dizzy/balance disorders. You should see an otoneurologist/neurotologist, here's a site if you live in the states for these kinds of docs:
It kind of sounds like you could have BPPV and it's the most treatable dizzy disorder. I have constant swaying due to damage to the right vestibular nerve and vestibular migraines. A sinus infection can certainly cause damage and depending on how your brain chooses to compensate--like mine for instance chose the least sickest route and easiest route to get back on my feet, so it left me with the swaying feeling. Please find a doc who can help you and here are a couple of more sites for dizziness:

Take care and hope you feel better soon, Paula
