Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I have a continuous stuffy nose which gives me brief dizzy spells that go once I try to blow my nose (not hard). It just helps equalize pressure. My glucose, BP, heart tests are normal. I eat and drink regularly. I work in a dusty environment. The dizziness is definitely associated with congestion. How can I stop it?

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Either a dust allergy or infection is causing you an allergic rhinitis. You will need X-ray PNS (Water's view) and CT PNS for a confirmation. I suggest taking: 1. Tablet Azee 500 mg (Azithromycin) BD for five days. 2. Tablet Montair LC (Montelukast and Levocetirizine) HS for five days. 3. Avamys nasal spray (Fluticasone) two to four puffs BD. 4. Otrinoz nasal drops (Xylometazoline hydrochloride) two TDS. 5. Capsule Zevit (Vitamin supplement) OD. Avoid dust by covering with a facemask. Follow up with the reports.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
