I wake up every morning with my nose stuffed shut, my eyelids stuck to my eyes and have chronic positional vertigo. I have Nasonex for my stuffed nose, Systane for my dry eyes and a third prescription I have to take to calm the dizziness when it gets bad. This has all come on in the past few years. I keep thinking there must be a connection.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Allergies explain the connection. It could lso cause sinusitis. Supportive and symptomatic care is all you need.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
