Ear, Nose, and Throat Disorders
Due to allergies, I feel pressure above my eye and around the base of my nose. Now all of these symptoms make sense when it comes to allergies, but what I don`t understand is how do chills relate to allergies? I always get an ear infection and chills when my sinuses or allergies act up? This is so odd? What are the explainations for why this might occur?
Allergies can impact eustachian tube function, which in turn may cause pressure and fullness in the ears. However, chills would be unusual. You might consider discussing this with your doctor to make certain there is not some other underlying cause.
