I've been experiencing dizziness, blurred vision, & a severe constant pressure headache since Tuesday.
I saw a doctor on Thursday who told me he believes I have Sinusitis(for the second time this year)although many of the symptoms I had last time aren't present this time. I haven't recently had a cold. I don't have a blocked nose. I have no mucus at all & I have no loss of appetite.

He prescribed me Doxycyline 100mg(which is what was prescribed for me last time)& told me to take 2 capsules on the first day & then 1 capsule everyday until the end of the course.

Since then I have developed swollen eyes, with very red, sore, puffy and peeling/dry skin underneath them. I have also become very lethargic and weak feeling. My original symptoms are still present. I have also found that when I eat(especially sweet foods) my headaches and lightheadedness seem to ease or virtually disappear for an hour or so, before returning. Is this linked to Sinusitis, medication or something else?

Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

If eating sweet things helps take care of headache and light headedness then it could be due to hypoglycemia and acidity. Take a blood test and see. In addition you have probably developed conjunctivitis. Please consult an eye specialist. Hope this helps. Take care!
