Chronic sinusitis, vertigo. Ear crystals in inner line, tubes in ear. How to treat it?

Hi I am a 44 yr old female who suffers from chronic sinusitis and vertigo . I dont know what has caused my vertigo other than crystal in my inner ear out of line, or having tubes in my ears as a child. There is some scar tissue there, as the ENT has told me and he also told me I have vertigo. He did manipulations to realign the crystals, helped for a little bit, but its back again. He wants to do a CT Scan but I cannot afford it now, and my insurance said it is a pre-existing condition. I do nasal sprays, humidifier , allergy meds, decongestants, nettie pot, etc. I m never feeling well, tired and frustrated. What else can I do?

thanks for your query.

It could be chronic sinusitis with BPPV.

Continue your medications and do labyrinthine rehabilitation exercises like eye movements, neck movements and back movements in all quadrants repeatedly.

avoid cold and junk feeds.

Avoid allergens like dust, fumes, pollens, pollutions etc.

Many thanks, take care.
