brain fog/dizziness

I have been diagnosed and treated 6 times in 3 months for sinus and ear infections. Ranging from Amoxicillian up to Spectracef. High dose steroids caused panic attacks and mental/emotional breakdown, stayed inpatient 4 days on psych unit.
They cleared me for mental illness and said it was medication induced. I am now taking Prozac, Ativan, Buspar, Antivert, Zyrtec, Estrogen and Nasonex. My sinus and ear symptoms are bearable it's the brain fog/feeling out of it, kinda drugged all the time that is killing me. I have been to 4-5 MD's, 3-4 ER's and to one ENT (who was stuck in 1970) and didn't have any equipment to test anything but my hearing, which was fine. I am a nurse who had to quit my job, sell my house and move in with my grandmother. This has been going on for 3+ months. Before all of this I was taking NO medication, now I'm a walking pharmacy. I am at the end of my rope. I know the depression is worsening because I feel like I can't function. The doctor said maybe Minere's or Lybrinthitis but that usually (90%) effects one ear not both. Has anyone found any relief or a reason for these strange symptoms? The doctors just look at me like I have 3 heads and tell me nothings wrong!

Re: brain fog/dizziness

Did your problems start in the spring? If so, I have seen where the weather is the major cause of this and people have actually moved to avoid this problem. I am looking into that right now, I spend every spring sick, and half the summer dealing with allergies. John Wayne is originally from Winterset, Iowa. He only ended up in California because his dad got sick every year with upper respiratory infections and was tired of being sick. He asked the doc what he could do to prevent them, the doc said he would have to move to a warm dry climate. When they did, the problem went away. The only other thing you can do that I can think of, is to take something daily to prevent the symptoms, which is the sinuses swelling in reaction to the air, and this is what turns into infection, as they can't drain. The brain fog comes with this, like a nonstop pressure. I spent an entire spring and summer like this, wondering what was the matter with me, then when fall came, I started feeling better. I also ended up with ear infection one time from it. I went to the doc, was prescribed allegra, and have to live on that in the spring and summer unless I move. Nasal sprays also worked well, and kept my sinuses from swelling and causing the symptoms. I hope you find some relief.
