What can I do?! I'm experiencing inner ear pain and severe dizziness?

What can I do?! I'm experiencing inner ear pain and severe dizziness?

See a physician: Unfortunately, there are many conditions that can cause those symptoms, from very mild (like ear infections, sinus infections, etc.) to more serious. Balance and dizziness problems are often due to conditions in the inner ear, but not always. It also depends what you are doing at the time (rest, with activity, etc.). I would absolutely recommend seeing your physician. Best of luck to you!

Specialist: If you have taken 3 rounds of antibiotics appropriately and are still experiencing symptoms, evaluation by a specialist (ENT/Ear, Nose, Throat) would be the logical next step.

Had ear pain 2 mo. Ago, put alcohol in and got better, but after week had cold with dizziness. 2 mo. Latter only dizziness returned. Why?

Had ear pain 2 mo. Ago, put alcohol in and got better, but after week had cold with dizziness. 2 mo. Latter only dizziness returned. Why?

Different Structures: Ear pain and changes in hearing are separate anatomically from dizziness and vertigo pain that responds to a little water/alcohol mix suggests the ear canal. A cold and dizziness can affect the middle ear by changing function of the eustacian tube (middle ear) and associated labyrinthitis (vestibular apparatus responsible in part for our balance) which is not part of the hearing mechanism.

I've been having headaches dizziness and ear pain & teeth been hurting?

I've been having headaches dizziness and ear pain & teeth been hurting?

Tooth infection: It sounds like you have a tooth infection. You need to go to the dentist for an exam. If not, it can get worst and much more costly. Tooth aches from an abcess can give headaches, ear pain, and pain that travels. This tooth may need either a root canal, build up and crown or an extraction.

Sudden left ear pain, threw up 3 times, dizzy when standing, and low grade fevee in the 99's. What could this be?

Sudden left ear pain, threw up 3 times, dizzy when standing, and low grade fevee in the 99's. What could this be?

See an md soon: It could be many things, but I would want to make sure you aren't having a labyrinthitis which could need antibiotics and steroids asap. If I were you i'd get checked out.

I'm having recent ear pain. But also have been noticing constant headaches, often slurred speech, and dizziness when I turn around. Help?

I'm having recent ear pain. But also have been noticing constant headaches, often slurred speech, and dizziness when I turn around. Help?

Unilateral headache: Any new onset headache, ear pain which is unilateral and associated with slurred speech and dizziness are alarm signs that alert you to listen to your body and seek attention immediately. These sxs. Can be a result of central problems in the brain, inner ear migraines etc. As a primary physician after taking a proper history and physical would refer you to an ENT and neurologist for furthereval.

What kind of treatments are there for tmj? Seems as if that might be the answer to why I'm feeling the ear pain dizziness n headaches over a year now?

What kind of treatments are there for tmj? Seems as if that might be the answer to why I'm feeling the ear pain dizziness n headaches over a year now?

Many treatments: Make sure you have ruled out inner ear problems, menere's disease, and neuro/vascular issues as well... Once a diagnosis has been made, treatments can include any combination of bite splints, orthodontics, bite balancing and restorative dentistry. Make sure you consult with someone who loves to do this type of care...

Novacaine shot caused immediate pain in my ear and felt nauseous and dizzy almost passing out. Now severe ear pain especially at night. Cause?

Novacaine shot caused immediate pain in my ear and felt nauseous and dizzy almost passing out. Now severe ear pain especially at night. Cause?

Cause??: Your own dentist would be the best one to answer these questions as he\she knows you, your dental history & the specifics surrounding your last visit. Having said that, your initial reaction might have been psychogenic or a reaction to the injection. Your ear pain may be a result of TMD, related to your dental problem or completely unrelated such as an ear infection. Speak to your dentist first.
