Sorry for sort of a naive question, but in spite of having a complicated medical history, I've never had issues with allergies before. None of my specialists are too concerned by my symptoms, but over the last two months, I've been experiencing:
- Nasal congestion (no mucus)
- Lump/tightness in throat
- Dry eyes

A few times this has caused me to visit urgent care, when I was feeling especially lightheaded or short of breath, but my labs and vitals (including oxygen) are always fine. I had chalked some of these symptoms up to anxiety until I woke up a few days ago with vertigo and discovered I had an ear infection.

I guess what I'm trying to gather here is how common these symptoms are, and what might be triggering them. I don't have a history of asthma, but I'm also not educated on the difference (in terms of sensation/cause). I wasn't sure if what I'm feeling indicates something like pollen, or if food is any kind of possibility.

Thanks

Obviously doctor can't look deep into throat, but did say my sinuses were very inflamed and suspected rhinitis to be the cause.
