Hi Candi, your primary care physician can refer you to an allergist/immunologist. Typically that specialty does immune evaluations, but you might want to check with their office first to make sure that they do immune system evaluations.
Alternatively your internal medicine physician could order some of the same blood tests that the immunologist would order.
Hope this helps. Good luck!

Bouncing up and down is also called "oscillopsia" and can indicate a bilateral vestibular loss. Some people also have general motion intolerance and describe a constant dysequilibrium, worse with quick motion.
Did you ever have an ENG/VNG (balance testing) as part of your ENT workup?
It sounds like some of your symptoms are due to dysfunction of the Eustachian tube. It is not unusual for chronic sinusitis not to respond to sinus surgery; recurrent acute sinusitis usually responds better. If the whole lining of the nose and sinuses is inflamed, it will continue to be so after surgery.
Can you describe your dizziness?
You may want to consider having an immune evaluation done to see whether you have an immune deficiency. IgG deficiencies and SCID (severe combined immunodeficiency) may be found in patients with chronic sinusitis.
You should probably be on nasal saline irrigations and nasal steroid sprays at the minimum.
Hope this helps. Good luck!
i have not been checked for that cause i didn't think i could cause i low grade fever. Thank you so much for the advice. I will check into it.
have you been checked for menyards disese candi my mother has same symtoms hope you get well soon
I have similar symptoms. A week ago I had a sudden distortion of vision, lasting maybe 20 minutes. All neuro tests WNL, as were EKG and CT scan. This has been followed by daily, slightly variable sense of 'spacy-ness,' bordering on vertigo, and an occasional very brief feeling of actual vertigo. I also have sense of eyes being slightly out of focu, despite being cleared in extensive opthal test. Thanks fo rany thoughts you can offer.
Thankyou so much for taking time out to answer my question. It is greatly appreciate. I'm curious where do I go and what sort of doctor do for an immune evaluation???? Perhaps that maybe the cause of this annoying fever. Again thankyou for your help.
I'm really not sure i went to what my doctor called a dizzy clinic and the ran test on my eyes and balance. They told me I had something that starts with a b. Is like bvpv or something. I don't know I just started calling it Snow Globe Head and I forgot the real name of it. It comes and goes though it not all the time. I don't get real dizzy when I turn my head and it use to b much worse than it is now.
i have the bounching up and down feeling too. like im in a boat or elevator. and i feel drunk without the pleasant buzz. haha
my ears are really bad i have to pop them all the time. the dizzness is like bouncing up and down or like a drunk feeling, its not spinning. thank you for your reply
i can't tell you what to do, but a couple things...chill with the cat scans, that's a lot of radiation....and find doctors who are paid by salary to treat you, i don't trust private care docs as far as i can throw em
