    Re: sinus pressure and ear pressure???

    It could be an impacted sinus infection causing ear fluid retention.. it could be just allergies. First try saline spray nasal rinses every four hours. If this seems to help and you are draining oddly colored or think mucus.. start taking decongestant in addition to the anti-histamine and saline spray. Also look into getting a script for Nasanex as well.

    If you begin to run a mild fever.. you need to get antibiotics to get rid of the infection.

    Sincerely,
    MG

    ...i was also wondering if my sinuses could be making me kind of heavy headed feeling?

    Oh, absolutely. Without a doubt. For the longest time, that was my primary complaint. It wasn't until the pain started that I went to the doctor. I'll never wait that long again before getting sinus treatment.

    thanks for the advice...i take ativan on an as needed basis for anxiety due to the fact that i'm going through an extremely stressful time in my life right now..so i was also wondering if anxiety and stress could cause my sinuses and ears to be even worse than usual?

    I've been having similar symptoms. No ear pressure to speak of, but definitely a popping/clicking in my ears when I swallow or move the back of my throat. I also get kind of dazed.

    Any ideas?
