Could this be allergy related?

Hi there. For the past week or so I have felt muzzy headed and had frequent dizzy spells. Today my throat feels like there's something there when I swallow, right at the top. I also have tinnitus andy right ear keeps popping. I had the stuck in the throat feeling over Christmas and had an mri in January which came back clear. I've had two scopes, the last being in March. The last scope was clear too. At the time it was put down as silent reflux, it seemed to clear with medication but came back quite suddenly yesterday. I'm just wondering if it could be allergy related? I'm not sneezing, just feel muzzy and lots of pressure round my eyes. I'd be really grateful if anyone can help. I have a gp appointment in Thursday but would like to try and figure this out before then

Many thanks

    Anxiety or allergy or anaemia will and can give you these effects. The throat is a spasm caused by stress I have rhinitis face and pain round the eye sockets, lots have it sometimes it can be sinusitis there similar pain wise. ENT you need to look at it go ask your dr to refer you.now you can try antihistamine see if they help as it's start of Hayfever  season .you have my sympathy truly do Stella x

      Hi Marlene, thanks so much for your reply. Ironically, I was discharged by ENT in March as my throat had got better. I'm going to ask the doc on Thursday if it's worth going back and seeing him again as it's in exactly the same place as it was before. I'm sure I've had this in the past but can't remember properly. Grrr! I know I had the eye pain and dizziness over winter and put it down to my ear being blocked. Hopefully this will go away soon as I do suffer from Anxiety and have been going through a lot health wise recently.  I was hoping it was all coming to an end. I feel like I'm back on the roller coaster again sad

      Hi Marlene, yes had camera up my nose and down my throat twice now ( not nice) plus had a camera down into my lungs. My throat isn't as bad today, but the tinnitus and dizziness are still here. Definitely going to fight my corner with the docs! You stay in touch, too smile
