Suggest treatment for persistent dizziness, blurred vision and fullness in ears
Steam inhalation is
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.
When we catch cold, the mucus gets thickened. This mucus clogging the sinuses can lead to sinus inflammation or sinusitis. It may lead to headaches. There is a connection between the inner part of throat and the middle ear cavity. The blockage of this tube by mucus may lead to pressure differences in the middle ear thereby giving the feeling of fullness of ears. It also affects the inner ear which is responsible both for the perception of hearing as well as the balance. Hence dizziness may occur. Thus, your symptoms correlate.
I would suggest you to take steam inhalation a few times a day. Water in the form of vapour would reach deep into the sinuses and would help in diluting the mucus and would thus provide relief. This would be the mainstay of treatment. You may take some antiallergic like cetirizine or meclizine for a few days since such infections are associated with an allergic reaction which causes the mucus to thicken.
Hope that helps.
Please continue the sinus rinse. But steam inhalation would be helpful.
Even though you are using sinus rise please do not assume that you are able to reach all the deep pockets. Although sinus rinse would be helpful, it would only be in part. You can take immuplex. It is supposed to be an immune modulator but it is not proven whether it actually works.
Meclizine relieves the allergic component involved
I do not think that the extraction of your canines had anything to do with your sinus infection. I have already mentioned that there is an allergic component involved. Meclizine is an antiallergic and hence provides relief.
Sinusitis is hard to treat.Avoid cold.Take steam inhalation
Thanks for writing back. Sinusitis is hard to cure as the blood supply is poor and medicines hardly reach there. Steam however can. Check out with an ENT Doctor whether some surgical intervention is required. Otherwise steam would be the best intervention.
You need no surgical intervention at the moment
Thanks for asking back. It is quite definite that there is a sinus pathology (bilateral patchy ethmoid mucosal disease). So, the problems and the pathology correlate. Had the patient been clinically fine and problem free, perhaps it would have been considered a minor thing. But in presence of the symtoms, we would have to assume the pathology of the mucus membranes of the ethmoid sinuses to be related. Unless there is associated deviated nasal septum or some other pathology, surgical intervention is not requried and steam inhalation should be your primary resort. You can report back to me after a fortnight or a month after observing the progress.
Glad to be of service
In case you found my answer to be helpful, I would request you to close the thread with a positive review and a 5 star rating.
