woman-in-red-t-shirt-looking-at-her-laptop-3755761.jpgSeasonal and environmental allergies can do some strange things to your body. In addition to all of the other unpleasant symptoms and issues caused by allergies - itchy, watery eyes, sneezing, wheezing, coughing, etc. - you can add dizziness to the list. If dizziness also accompanies your allergy symptoms, there may be a connection. How is that possible? Let's take a look.

The Connection Between Dizziness and Allergies

Allergy symptoms can affect your Eustachian tube, which is related to pressure in the middle ear and balance. Sometimes, allergies lead to issues with your ears, which can cause you to feel off-balance and dizzy. With that said, allergy symptoms are not the only causes of dizziness. Other causes can include...

  • Anxiety
  • Dehydration
  • Inner Ear Infections
  • Changes in Blood Sugar
  • Alcohol
  • Changes in Blood Pressure

If your allergy symptoms are the cause of your dizziness, then treating the allergies should help with this issue. Getting Allergy Tested and treated for your allergy triggers will go a long way in getting you feeling back to normal.
