thanks for your question.
it seems like you got another ear infection.
this is also known as acute labyrinthitis.
sort of my thought
this causes dizziness & other symptoms you described.
your sine infection may not have cleared completely & can spread to the inner ear.
this can be viral or bacterial infection.
bacterial infection usually causes purulent sinus discharge, fever and will persist longer than 4-5 days
Sounds like another trip to the Dr.

initially the shots he gave me seemed to help
in the meantime, drink plenty of fluids, avoid any dangerous activities like driving, swiming etc.
yes, this reduces the inflammation and also antibiotic treats the bacterial infection.
if you have chronic aller problem, this makes you prone for sinus & ear infections.
other chronic conditions like diabetes also increases risk of sinus infection.
well, thanks for your thoughts. If it continues or gets worse I'll stop in to see my Dr.
steroid nasal spray may be tried if allergic issues suspected for your persistent sinus infection.
