    Unhappy Sinus problems, what doctor to see?

    I was wondering on what type of doctor to see with my sinus problems, A ent or allergist. I've been having problems the past few years where either my sinuses drain to much and I end up puking for hours or I have days with really bad sinus pain. As of lately I've had a lot more bad days than I used to get. I've seen a allergist before, I have allergic rhinitis, and many allergies. I've tried taking allergy pills to help but they end up causing sinus pain when I take them. Could anyone recommend what type of doctor would be able to help or have had this problem before and what you did to stop it?

    Thank you,
    Monstermon

    I would still go to an ENT first, but it sounds like you need allergy shots for all of your allergies. Feel better soon!

    I've already tried allergy shots, I've had bad reactions to them so I had to stop getting them. And I'll try a ENT. Thank you.

    When I went to see an ENT he sent me straight to an allergist. But they worked together, so it was easy.
    But he done a CT too, so I guess it doesn't matter which you see first.
    But keep in mind when they do an allergy test, they only testing you for the common things. You could also be allergic to something they don't test for.

    Consult ENT specialist. Avoid allergenic foods
