Dizziness and Ear Popping
I am a 30 year old male who has suffered from acute sinusitis several times in the past 5 years. Six months ago I developed symptoms that I had not previously experienced with sinusitis, but were upper respitory in nature. Namely, my Eustachian tubes filled with fluid followed an associated "clicking" or "popping" sound in my ears. Furthermore, I have been experiencing on and off dizziness throughout the last six months. I do not have post nasal drip and I am pretty much headache and sinus pressure free, although very rarely I do experience both.
I have had three CT scans which all show sinus infections of my frontal and ephemiod sinuses. However, after trying months of ant-biotic and steroid treatment, the nasal sinus disease specialist now believes that the CT scans are most likely "false positives" and that my problems are more symptomatic of allergies (I am fairly allergic).
I am just curious if anyone else has experienced this and what they have done to help fix it! Any advice would be greatly appreicated. You can even e-mail me at Mike.Spivey@law.vanderbilt.edu
