Allergies board


I have been having the same problems -- fatigue, dizziness. I feel dazed all the time, like I used to feel in the morning when I just woke up. Now that's daily. I get some headaches, it feels like I have sinus pressure and the doctor put me on an antibiotic. I often feel like there is a "heaviness" inside my head, and the headaches often feel like pressure.

Sinus problems, related to allergies? I'm on the antibiotics right now and Flonase nasal spray. I had been taking Claritin-D and Claritin at different times but neither seemed to work. I've had hay fever allergies in the past, and I had Zyrtec and Allegra for them, but these symptoms are different. I'd like to fix them if I could, I haven't felt normal for several weeks now.

You said that it "felt" like you had sinus pressure, did they test you in anyway to see what exactly was going on, or did they just slap some meds on ya to meet their pharmacuetical (sp) quota?
I've had a blood test and basic neurological checks (reflexes, arm strength, etc). Other than that, no tests. My most recent visit to the doctor was on Thursday, when he prescribed the antibiotics and the Flonase. He said that if I wasn't feeling better within a week, he'd set up a CT scan.
Yeah, your GP is thinking sinus infection.. kill it early and get out. I am suprised he didn't tell you to take a decongestant in conjuction with the anti-biotics and flonase. Are you seeing an allergist about you allergies? ENT? You might want to start.. GP's are goood for routine care and maintanence, but they always prefer to treat the symptoms versus find and eradicate the cause.

Spider - you sound like me! Been there, done that. Antibiotics, CT Scan, VNG, Allergist, ENT doc, etc. As of today I still have this ear fullness, headache and fatigue, with some dizziness. I will have to say that when I finished my 10 day dose of Avelox a couple of weeks ago I was feeling better than before. But still, I think there is still something going on.

The Allergist says I am allergic to dust mites and dog hair. I have been doing the daily snius rinsing and flonase, but still there is still something not right. I am seriously considering doing allergy shots. I have felt pretty "off" this whole year and am really getting tired of feeling poorly all the time.
