eyesight2020 :

Hello,

eyesight2020 :

Do you suffer from allergies

eyesight2020 :

Or are you currently being treated for allergies or sinus infection.

eyesight2020 :

I will return later to continue.

Customer: No I don't suffer from allergies that I know off. Sometimes I get sinus pressure when the season changes
Customer: I recently had a very bad cold and this started after the cold subsided.
eyesight2020 :

Have you had this happen before and are you currently treated for any other medical

eyesight2020 :

issues,ie.thyroid disease or hypertension.

eyesight2020 :

Do you have any other symptoms,ie.sandy gritty feeling,reary burning eyes?

eyesight2020 :

teary burning eyes

eyesight2020 :

Are you taking any medications.

Customer: I am using nasal sprays to decongest the nose I have had this before after a cold and sometimes when there is a change in weather. Want to know if it is sinus related
eyesight2020 :

If you get sinus pressure with the season changes it is not uncommon that with inflammed sinuses to have a feeling of pressure behind or above the eyes.

Customer: It started after a cold
eyesight2020 :

You may want to consider being tested for allergies

eyesight2020 :

how long after the cold

Customer: Yes
Customer: Does this sound sinus related?
eyesight2020 :

For some reason my whole conversation with you was deleted

eyesight2020 :

So as I was saying you may want to get tested for allergies since sinus pressure due to a cold or allegies could contribute to the pressure you are describing.

eyesight2020 :

Only a visit with your primary care doctor could confirm if they are the cause for certain or if there is another cause of the pressure around the eyes.

eyesight2020 :

Also you should have an eye exam to determine if you need glassess

eyesight2020 :

Sometimes squintng to clear things up at distance can give you a haedache/pressure feeling above the eyes

Customer: I wear glasses already
Customer: I have eye checks every year my prescription is about 1.5 or so
eyesight2020 :

Also with the eye exam a complete ocular health evaluation will be done to rule any ocular pathology as the cause

Customer: I don't normally squint
eyesight2020 :

Well as I said yes sinuses can give that pressure feeliling but I would folloup with your doctor especially in regards XXXXX XXXXX issue of the dizzines

eyesight2020 :

It could be simply an inner ear issue but he would give you a thorough work up to find the exact cause

eyesight2020 :

Does this make sense

eyesight2020 :

Hello are you there or did I loose you

eyesight2020 :

I hope this helps apositive rating is appreciated
