Suggest remedy for non allergic rhinitis, headache and dizziness

Hello, I am a 32 year old female residing in Berrien Springs MI. I just moved to the area from FL. I am 107 lbs and 5.1 tall. I have been diagnosed with non allergic rhinitis. I have had pressure in my head, with some dizziness and sometimes a light headache. My ENT gave a spray but that does not seem to deal well with my symptoms. Are these symptoms treatable at all. They come on and off, and I just feel that they are affecting my daily life. Please help...

Hi and thanks for the query,
You might simple need to get the doses of the drugs changed, or treatment modified. Compliance to treatment remains mandatory for monitoring. Other conditions like nasal polyps and sinusitis must be carefully checked for and excluded. A nasofibroscopy to check for tumors of the ethmoid bone should also be considered. Kind regards

It has been found that due to no reason whatsoever, some people get non allergic rhinitis,ie sneezing follwed by sore throat and even severe headache.the sneezing is triggered at night or evenings.use of anti-histamines,helps, but it cannot be used for long,since one gets immune to the medicine,some were recommended Montec.I do not know whether it is required at all.The latest drug in this catagory is Allegra, which is helpful in some patients.Pl. share your experience and views on the above

I suffer from non allergic rhinitis and it is ruining my quality of life. The medicine I take to help with the symptoms cause dry mouth. I am desperate for answers and help with this problem. Is there a surgery that can help with this problem? I am currently taking donnatol (it has a drying agent in it) and atrovent nasal spray 4 times daily. Sometime it works and sometime it does not. I also take salogen for dry mouth caused by the other medications. I am a mess and desperate for help. Thank you so much.

I m military and in basic and AIT (both located in GA) I developed a odd sounding chronic cough. I went through numerous tests to include XRAY, Methacholine challenge, GERD, Allergy and others I can t recall. I also have rhinitis which I m told by the allergist is not due to any allergy (I had a full skin test). It mostly subsided when I was stationed in Ft Lewis, WA while I was taking flonase and zyrtec. I ve since been stationed at Hunter AAF, GA and now the cough is back in full force and my rhinitis is no longer controlled by flonase. An allergist back at fort gordon told me it was cough variant asthma( after successfully reducing the symptoms with prednisone and then advair) but the pulmonologist at both fort gordon and fort lewis insist that I don t have asthma. While my symptoms are present I have a shortness of breath during running and similar exercises but to a lesser extent in washington. I had no issues during my deployment to Iraq (my 2 mile run times dropped four minutes with no changes in behavior) I was 18 when in Basic and AIT and now am 22 soon to be 23. Any ideas?

I a 33, 5 2, 160 lbs and have some symptoms of either MS or Devic s Disease (optic neuritis, spinal lesions, abnormal spinal tap). I have allergic rhinitis, gerd, and diverticulosis. My question or concern today is that I have no symptoms of sinusitis in my opinion, but my ears feel like there is a lot of pressure in them. Went to urgent care and they told me that is was sinusitis and that I had air trapped in my ears. i was given ru-hist, ru-hist d, astepro and verimist and also a hydrocortisone shot. This was on Thursday and nothing has helped, what should I do next?
