Your symptoms (duration not specified) are suggestive of Allergic Rhinitis. Precipitating factors include exposure to house dust, pollen grains and animals (dog, cat). Skin test for allergy, eosinophil count and estimation of IgE antibodies may be useful to confirm the diagnosis. Anti-allergic drugs and avoiding exposure to the responsible factor will help

A new physician maybe ??

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?
