I've been told it's a sinus infection but

Hi I started having issuses in June of 2010 started off with almost passing out I take some cold & sinus & it helped but kept going then my ears & sinus got really filled & I threw up & went to the ER in Nov of 2010 & was told it's a sinus infection toke the 3 antibiotics pills felt good for about a week then back again to the ears & sinuses really full then I cleaned the air ducks in Aug 2011 had a really bad allergy attack the doc I saw said the whole issuse is allergies & said take Zyrtec but it's not really working now it's ALL THE TIME my ears are full & sometimes (about 30%) my sinuses are packed. What could this be? thisjustin I'm tired of this

Hi umichiganfan16
I ended up in the ER with asthma i didnt know i had. Turns out i have allergies too and they suck. I get hayfever from dust which makes my sinuses swell up and i sneeze constantly- like 300 times a day plus. I tried alot of different medication but the only ones that worked knocked me out. I was lucky enough to be sent to a good specialist who started me on desensitization injections. They are great and have stopped the allergic asthma and the hayfever.

What are you allergic too? Maybe getting that dealt with will work for you too.
