Anyone got problems with balance

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hello All fellow sufferers, does anyone experience being off balance and tingling when your sinuses are really bad. i ended up in A & E last night as i thought i was having a stroke.

I'd had a sinus headache all day and my ears felt they would explode, then suddenly i felt odd, my coordination was off i felt my arms, hand and head go tingly then when i got up my balance was off , i was going to one side, it has really scared me.

Today i just feel fragile.

Anyone else feel this ?

    I have exactly that! I felt so bad at work on the computer I came home. I was feeling like I was going to faint. I'm left with bad pressure in my head and once I lay down at night I can hear the mucous cracking and popping behind my nose. Constant headache and off balance feeling. I feel for you

      You're definitely not the only one. Try not to over analyse every body movement because that stresses you out to. I haven't gone back to work as I'm still a bit dizzy and i know I'll end worse once I'm on that computer. I plan to try Tuesday next week. Tomorrow i can phone the hospital to make my ENT appointment which is good news. Hopefully you'll get your referal to x

    You probably have a sinus infection. Try a netty pot or Sudafed.
