Dizziness may have many underlying causes, ranging from dehydration to serious medical conditions. One of the possible causes is allergy. An allergy occurs when your immune system reacts violently to harmless things such as pollen, animal hair, and certain food. The reactions can be severe, and sometimes even lethal.

Airborne allergy-induced dizziness

Particles in the air can trigger allergic reactions. When the particles get into your body your immune system fights against by releasing antibodies.  Typical allergic reactions include sinus blockage, repeated sneezing, itchy throat, and severe coughing. The allergy affects the Eustachian tube, which is a tunnel connecting the middle part of your ear to the back of your throat. The Eustachian tube regulates your balance and equalizes your middle ear pressure with the ambient air pressure. You might experience symptoms such as a clogged feeling in the ear, or hearing difficulties. This is when your Eustachian tube is probably blocked with mucus. The blocked Eustachian tube is unable to equalize pressure and maintain your balance. And this causes dizziness.

Food allergy-induced dizziness

Food-related allergies can induce dizziness as well. If you usually have to suffer dizziness, airborne allergies may not be the culprit. It is likely that you have an intolerance to a certain food. Your symptoms can be observed either immediately after eating the food allergen or hours later. Nevertheless, food allergies tend to take effect quickly. Symptoms of mild food intolerance, on the other hand, can be delayed for several hours, or even days. That is why you might not associate your dizziness with your recent meal. You will need allergy testing to figure it out.

Allergy-induced vertigo

Vertigo is the most severe form of dizziness. It causes you to feel as if the room is spinning. Vertigo may also make you have the illusion that you are moving when you are actually still. People believe that allergy-induced vertigo is the result of fluid building up in the middle ear. Vertigo, albeit disruptive, can be treated. Your doctor will need to run a variety of allergy tests to determine the cause of your condition. If your vertigo is caused by allergic rhinitis, treating the condition will also relieve your vertigo. However, vertigo can relate to many serious medical issues. It is advisable to seek medical care as soon as possible to get early diagnosis and treatments.

Allery-induced dizziness usually goes away on its own once you find the way to address the allergy. The best thing you can do to avoid allergies is avoiding your allergens.
