    Sinus/Allergy Problems and Visual Disturbances/Dizziness

    I wanted to put this out there to see if anyone else has experienced these problems as a side effect of allergies or sinus pressure. This year has been unbearable as far as my seasonable allergies are concerned. I was recently tested at an allergy specialist and I am severely allergic to trees, grass, and ragweed. I was prescribed Singulair and told to take Zyrtec and use Flonase on top of it. After about a week of this combo, I started to have severe visual disturbances. I noticed that I can literally see my pulse - like, my eyes are throbbing and it flashes in my eye sight when it happens. My vision is also very distorted and blurry. In the afternoon and early evening, my vision becomes incredibly blurry - it's like someone smeared Vaseline in my eyes, and it remains even after I take out my contacts so it's not dry eyes. The visual stuff combined with the pressure in my sinuses makes me incredibly dizzy, and it all gets much worse when I get up and walk around. I am completely avoiding the outdoors aside from dragging my exhausted self into work every day. It probably isn't the safest thing to be driving but I don't have a choice, I have already missed a ton of work trying to figure out a way to get some relief from this. I was in the ER on Monday after work and they suspected that I was having a bad reaction to the allergy medication, so I quit taking it on Monday. Yesterday my vision was getting a bit better, but today it's back to being very distorted and I am very dizzy. I am very congested as well, and my lungs burn when I breathe. The allergist said that I have good lung function, but I still feel the burning on and off when I breathe. Does anyone else have these problems or know what this could be? I am becoming desperate at this point. I have an appointment with an ENT at the end of the month. I have been to my eye doctor a number of times in the last month and they say my eyes are in good health and this is probably allergy related. The ER took a CT scan and blood work and said everything looked normal. If anyone else can shed some light on this or if I knew I wasn't the only person with these symptoms, I would be grateful...
