Allergies and sinus

good evening,I know that this has nothing to do with menopause but is anyone else suffering with allergies and sinus they are killing me so much post nasal drip and headaches. I finally called my doctor, getting medication delivered to me on Monday hopefully I will get some relief from it.

    Yes, me! It starts every year in May and lasts until late September...I sometimes feel fever-ish and suffer from unbearably itchy eyes! I got an eye lotion the other day which is helping a little. Hope your appointment goes well!

    I am doing much better now the doctor added Zyrtec and antibiotics. I haven't taken the antibiotics yet because before the medication was delivered to my house, my symptoms were going away. I just ran out of Flonase so I am going to get more of that and I hope to be ok. If my symptoms get really bad again I will take the antibiotics.

    Happy Friday

    I am so glad, I am doing a lot better with the sinus and allergies. I am now taking Zyrtec and Benedryll occasionally. I didn't have to take the antibiotics because my symptoms went a way on their own maybe because I waited so long.

    So happy to get that out of the way for now but it will be back again when the season changes.

    Has anyone ever experienced this? I didn't have allergies and sinus until I got older. Never had asthma or allergies when I was younger?

    Just recently I would say in the past three or so years I am now allergic to shellfish and I LOVE LOVE LOVE shellfish and I can't have any of it now what a blow.

    Hi l am new to the site. I have allergies and sinus and also hearing loss that requires hearing aid. Recently I went to ENT and was told had fluid in right ear. Placed a tube in that ear, and now I hear ringing all the time and head feels floaty. I'm not sure if that floaty feeling is from menopause or ears. I'm 52 years old and haven't had a menstrual cycle since she 49. I'm gittery all the time like nerves are out of wack especially since this covid thing come along. Any one have similar problems? I would love to hear.

    Hi @Djdros52,

    Welcome to this lovely group.

    I haven't experienced the "floaty" feeling myself, however I found an older discussion where lots of ladies talk about this actually! Someone said it feels like you're "under water". This is the link to it:

    I'm so sorry to hear you feel nervous, unfortunately the current situation indeed does not help. I try to exercise 2-3 times a week and go for a walk each day, these slightly help me cope with the stress and anxiety.

    I also wanted to share these two articles, you might find them useful. They're full of great tips and recommendations from ladies:

    Have a lovely day,

    Blanka x
