Hi everyone. I went to the walk-in clinic the other day because I had a weird feeling in my head. Not exactly pressure but like a pull feeling in my scalp when I would move my eyebrows. And my equilibrium was off, making me feel off balanced. I have chronic sinusitis, and the doctor said because of that, I had fluid in my ear around my vestibular nerve. She put me on Loratidine and I took that until Wednesday. I stopped because it was making me dizzy and shaky, and my blood pressure and blood sugar went up because of it so she told me to get some Allegra from the store for the fluid in my ear. My blood sugar came down after that, and my blood pressure did some but is still a little high. Since yesterday, I started getting strange sensations in the top of my spine and sometimes it will feel numb. Certain ways I sit will make it worse sometimes and I get a strange feeling in my eyes. And the head sensation is still there. The off balance and head sensation has come and went for months now, but everytime I go to get checked it was always "sinuses". I'm wondering if I have some kind of vestibular issue? I had a CT scan of my head and sinuses (when I was diagnosed with chronic sinusitis) and the only thing that showed up with the sinus problem. When I felt the top of my spine this morning, I felt a small lump there, but I felt better putting pressure on my spine. I didn't have that until the spine sensations started so I'm worried something is wrong with my spine. As for the head sensations and dizziness, could that really be my sinuses? Maybe anxiety? I read about vestibular neuritis and that described it too. Should I have blood work done? I'm just really tired of feeling this way. It's preventing me from going out with friends and having a life because I'm scared of getting dizzy while I'm out. I want it to go away but it hasn't no matter what I do, and it feels like it never will.
