Felt sudden dizziness and pressure on July 15. No

Customer Question

Felt sudden dizziness and pressure on July 15. No drippiness, fever or other sinus issue. Thought it was allergy to wine so I stopped drinking but symptoms persisted. Started taking Sudafed on August 7 - great relief. Saw GP on August 11. Prescribed amoxicillin and prednisone taper and said I would be better in 4 days. Today, 4 days later, the Sudafed does not work as well. I have not had a sinus problem for 25+ years. I have controlled allergies to cats (I own 2) but this started while on vacation - no cats around until I returned home on July 27 but symptoms persisted. No allergy symptoms at all. I feel very atypical and concerned. Not sure who to see or when.

What areas do you feel presure sensation ?

Forehead/ near eyes / cheekbone areas ?

It sounds that you may have a sinus infection...

There is significant degree of resistance of bacteria to Amoxicillin ...It may be that you need a different antibiotic .

You could be checked by an ENT specialist

You might be checked further with a CT scan of the sinuses
