Hi--we can continue after this if you'd like, but it sounds as though you have a significant case of sinusitis--sinus infection--that's also affecting your Eustacian tubes and your inner ear. I would get a ct scan of your sinuses and treat you for now with an antibiotic like Septra DS. Your doctor for now is treating this like an allergy problem, but I think it's more than that.

You can try some Mucinex and a saline nasal irrigation system Susan but don't take any antihistamines or decongestants since those can actually make things worse
