Had a bout of dizziness while driving. Had to pull over, it lasted maybe 5 min. Have been having ear problems connected to allergies.?

Possible BPV: In general, people refer to dizziness when they feel either lightheaded or have a spinning sensation better known as vertigo.

I had stye in my eye which was painful and today I noticed swelling in my right neck beneath jaw & next to ear. The pain is increasing too. Connected?

Likely Connected: A sty represents an infection. The swelling you describe sounds like the lymph nodes in this area are responding to your infection. The job of a lymph node is to fight and prevent the spread of infection. You did not say if the swellings are on the same side as your sty; if they are then the swellings represent nodes. See an ophthalmologist ASAP as you need treatment. ...Read more
