Dust allergy?

Hi :)

I will try and keep this as short as possible. I have been ill basically on and off for 2+ years, I have visted neurologists, had and mri (Normal) Visited an ent who found inflammation of sinuses  (Although couldn’t find cause), he just wanted to operate.

And my symptoms :

Headache (Pressure like)
Headache (Random striking pain)
Eye pain
Cloudy headed
Constantly blocked nose (Dry)
Ear pain

I just generally feel ill most days, then on other rare days I will feel good. It just causes stress never feeling very good, and because it has been running on so long it just makes it worse.

So I guess my question is, can a dust allergy make you feel this ill? My only known allergy is pets, but I am now convinced my problems could be linked to a dust allergy.

I have noticed this more lately, after having a few days of work, I slept a lot, and after every sleep I actually wake up feeling worse (Headache, nose completely blocked, pulsating eye pain)

Is it the bed?

I dunno, I wont give up untill I find out what is wrong :)

Thanks very much

To find the cause will take you a while, but this will help you cure the symptoms.
The Yoga Pranayam (breathing exercises) will  help with allergy  problems.
Build up your timing gradually. If you feel tired or dizzy, stop and resume after 1 minute.

Bhastrika - Take a long deep breath into the lungs(chest not tummy) via the nose and then completely breathe out through the nose. Duration upto 5 minutes.

Anulom Vilom –
Close your right nostril with thumb and deep breath-in through left nostril  
then – close left nostril with two fingers and breath-out through right nostril  
then -keeping the left nostril closed  deep breath-in through right nostril
then - close your right nostril with thumb and breath-out through left nostril.
This is one cycle of anulom vilom.
Repeat this cycle for 20 to 30  minutes twice a day(maximum 60 minutes in one day).
You can do this before breakfast/lunch/dinner or before bedtime or in bed.Remember to take deep long breaths into the lungs.You can do this while sitting on floor or chair or lying in bed.

Bhramri Pranayam -Close eyes. Close ears with thumb, index finger on forehead, and rest three fingers on base of nose touching eyes. Breathe in through nose. And now breathe out through nose while humming like a bee.
Duration : 5 to 12  times

Kapalbhati -(Do it before eating) Push air forcefully out through the nose about once per second. Stomach will itself go in(contract in). The breathing in(through the nose) will happen automatically. Establish a rhythm and do for 20 to 30 minutes twice a day.(Max 60 min/day) Not for pregnant women. Seriously ill people do it gently.

Once you are better, continue the pranayam once a day.
Be patient, as the benefits will show over a period of months.Only by doing you will benefit
and feel good because you are helping your body.Those who say I have tried everything....
will be amazed at the result of doing pranayam.

It's good that your MRI was normal. Allergies are a common cause of sinusitis. Since you've been having these symptoms for almost 2 years, yours is a chronic case. Your symptoms of headache, ear pain, fatigue, and nasal congestion all points to this diagnosis. It is important to know your allergy triggers to prevent your symptoms from happening. House dust that can cause allergic reaction include molds, pet and human dander, cockroach waste and the dust mite. To know if house dust is really the culprit, an allergy skin test may be recommended. Take care and keep us posted.
