Can problems with the ears cause vertigo (spinning feeling)? It's highly probable I have oi type 1, which can affect my ears from what i understand.
Unlikely but possibl: I assume you have osteogenesis imperfecta. This is a defect in bone development that causes frequent fractures. There can be boney overgrowth in certain areas including in the skull. This may cause some defect in inner ear function. However, episodes of vertigo may also be due to poor blood flow to the brain. Blood flow through the neck may be bad. You need a thorough evaluation. ...Read more

When i injured me knee i had severe pain in my knee but also got a sudden headache, vertigo type sensation and felt about to have a nosebleed. Why?
Hard to say: It is not really possible to tie all those things together into a single cause. Anatomically, a knee injury should not contribute to a nose bleed or vertigo.

Dizzy: Positional "postural" dizziness can be due to a number of causes. Most commonly would be either a vestibular (middle/inner ear) or causes related to hydration.
