Is Dizziness a Common Symptom of Chronic Sinusitis?

I have chronic sinisitus, I can't seem to shake this problem, have been on antibiotics for whole months at a time and it seems to never go away.  I always feel hot but no fever, I have thick drainage in the back of my throat always but havn't been having headaches lately however, very, very dizzy.  Sometimes I can not get out of bed.  This has just recently been a problem.  Can sinisitus cause dizziness or should I be concerned it may be something else?

Sinusitis can cause dizziness. I would suggest seeing an Ears Nose and Throat specialist for a more complete evaluation and treatment plan.

My daughter and I have suffered with chronic sinus problems which can cause a lot of other problems and dizziness ranks high up on the list.  My daughter who is 10 suffers a lot with the dizziness even after two operations.  Good luck!
