    Has anyone flown with sinus infection?

    I have an inner ear disorder - either Meniere's or just episodic vertigo in the last 50 years. I have a raging sinus infection and am on prednisone and antibiotics--this is the second round of antibiotics in two months, it just isn't clearing up. I'm terrified to fly next week. I can barely get off the couch right now, just hoping the meds clear it up. While at the ENT office I read that flying with a sinus infection can result in eardrum perforation, vertigo or more serious consequences. Has anyone else flown with a sinus infection and if so, what happened?

    I am sorry no one has responded. That happens to me too. I have tons of sinus issues and currently have yet another sinus infection. It's so bad I went to the dentist yesterday to get an x ray of my teeth. I have a horrible tooth ear from the sinus pressure. Nothing was wrong with my teeth! I would say flying will be ok but you may feel some pressure. Can you take Sudefed and chew some gum on the flight? That will help. I hope you feel better soon!
