Hello, I seem to have sinusitis and was put on an antibiotic today as well as given a steroid shot. I ve been sick for a week and finally went to the doctor this morning. But, my family is coming to visit from out of state tomorrow late afternoon and will be spending the night. Do you think I am contagious? My Dad has emphysema and I don t want to make him sick. Thank you

What is sinusitis? You get up in the morning feeling lousy, with a heavy head a feeling which Persists through the day wanting to sleep all the time, you re coughing and sneezing and tired and achy. You think that you might be getting a cold. Later, when the medicines you ve been taking to relieve the symptoms of the common cold are not working, you finally drag yourself to the doctor. After listening to your history of symptoms, examining your face and forehead, and perhaps doing a sinus X-ray, the doctor says you have sinusitis. What are sinuses? Sinuses are hollow air spaces in the human body. When people say, I m having a sinus attack, they usually are referring to symptoms in one or more of four pairs of cavities, or sinuses,known as paranasal sinuses. These cavities, located within the skull or bones of the head surrounding the nose, include the: Frontal sinuses over the eyes in the brow area Maxillary sinuses inside each cheekbone Ethmoid sinuses just behind the bridge of the nose and between the eyes Sphenoid sinuses behind the ethmoids in the upper region of the nose and behind the eyes Each sinus has an opening into the nose for the free exchange of air and mucus, and each is joined with the nasal passages by a continuous mucous membrane lining. Therefore, anything that causes a swelling in the nose-an infection, an allergic reaction, or an immune reaction-also can affect the sinuses. Air trapped within a blocked sinus, along with pus or other secretions, may cause pressure on the sinus wall. The result is the sometimes intense pain of a sinus attack. Similarly, when air is prevented from entering a paranasal sinus by a swollen membrane at the opening, a vacuum can be created that also causes pain. What are the symptoms of sinusitis? The location of your sinus pain depends on which sinus is affected. Headache when you wake up in the morning is typical of a sinus problem. Pain when your forehead over the frontal sinuses is touched may indicate that your frontal sinuses are inflammed

Hello! I am having a problem with random dizziness. I am not sure what is causing my issues. The only cause that I can think of is that I have had sinus issues for the last 4 months that will not go away. I m not sure if that could have anything to do with the dizziness. I also stopped taking several medications without consulting my doctor, which may have caused the dizziness as well, but I m not sure. The dizziness is not present everyday and I can still function with it. It is just annoying to feel vertigo for days at a time. What could possibly be the cause of my random dizziness? Thank you!
