Had vertigo and uncontrollable sneezing. Have congestion and dizziness. What to do?

This is a quick synopsis of my ongoing difficulties. Last June I had vertigo and it took over a week before I could function normally. I have many sinus problems including infections dudring which my left ear and left side always feel more pressure. Ten days ago I woke up with slight vertigo- saw my Dr. 2 days later and began exercises with humidifier . Somewhat better- 4 days later began sneezing uncontrollably and now have lots of congestion so I called my Dr. and began using Afrin for 3 days. Could not go to school today because I still feel weak, congested and dizzy. Of course my left side of my head hurts more and I feel pressure around the ear. Called my Dr. and she has called in an antibiotic. I will take it of course but I feel there is an underlying problem here. What should I do?

thanks for your query
History seems that you might be suffering from chronic rhinosinusitis with some element of labyrinthine pathology.

Take topical steroidal nasal spray like mometasone nasal spray, anti inflammatory drug like tab chymoral plus, anti histaminics like levocet.

Take steam inhalation.

Avoid cold and junk foods.

For your labyrinth, take any labyrinthine sedative like cinnarizine for 4-5 days.

Thanks a lot, take care.

It seems that you are having upper respiratory tract infection spreading in the ear producing middle ear infection.
This middle ear infection can cause vertigo.
Go for one course of higher antibiotic like Azzithromicin for 5 days after consulting your doctor.
Do vicks vapor inhalation.
Avoid cold drinks and jumk food.
Ok and take care.
