Thank you for your response. It's comforting to know I'm not alone. Along with the pleasantries of sinus/allergy problems, I also suffer from anxiety/panic attacks. Which, of course, only exacerbates the problem.
I can't take antihistimines because I also have MVP(mitral valve prolapse) but have learned to suffer through it. I just really needed to know if my dr. and ENT knew what they were talking about because out here on the web, I find so much conflicting info. I was not tested by an allergist as my ENT said that it would probably be just a waste of money, because we (he & I) had pretty much summed it up to food allergies, and milk being the major culprit. He did, however, say that if after a month of food avoidances and then adding them back in, I still felt dizzy - then I should consult an allergist. Surprised me, didn't think dr's thought of "saving" money! LOL
I don't have the classic allergy symptoms such as the itchy, watery eyes, runny nose, etc. so that is one reason why he thought food allergies. He says that the food allergies can inflame the eustachian tube and cause the off balance feeling and that made sense to me.
I was wondering if ear tubes put in could solve the problem. Hmmmm, do you know much about them?
