This answer was rated:

A few times this week I have felt off balanced and have been able to work through it. This morning when I got up I felt off balanced and by the time I walked 10 feet the room was spinning. Other symptoms have been headaches which are not abnormal for me especially around the sinuses.
Should I head to the doctor?

mysticdoc :

Hello,

mysticdoc :

Thanks for your question.

mysticdoc :

Sinus infection can commonly cause headaches and vertigo.

mysticdoc :

The inflammation of the nerve in the inner ear from sinus infection explains your symptoms.

mysticdoc :

Over the counter dramamine tablets help with the vertigo or spinning sensation.

mysticdoc :

I will suggest you to see your doctor to rule out sinus infection.

mysticdoc :

Stroke is another possibility.

Customer:

Can you tell me what type of doc to see? PCP or specialist?

mysticdoc :

PCP

Customer:

thank you

mysticdoc :

very welcome

mysticdoc :

Stroke is less likely since you do not have any other neurological symptoms.

mysticdoc :

Best wishes,
