How can I tell if I have an inner ear problem?

Maybe: I need more symptoms and need to do a physical exam in order to determine this. Are you nauseated? Do you have the sensation that the room is spinning? Is your gait altered?

Dizzy: Dizziness is one of those words that can mean different things to different people. Vertigo can have one cause and lightheadedness can have another. If you are lightheaded I would recommend seeing a doctor. Vertigo will usually resolvs on its own after a week or so but see a doctor if it continues. If you are lightheaded then I would recommend seeing a doctor soon.

Is there anything you can do for an inner ear problem I feel car sick all the time and take Dramamine (dimenhydrinate) to be able t o function?

Yes: You need a complex evaluation by your physician and an ENT consultation which is an Ear Nose and Throat expert. If you have chronic vestibular symptoms such as vertigo and nausea, your thyroid levels should be evaluated, full exam and rule out cardiac causes, meclizine or scopolamine are medicines that can help you, and zofran (ondansetron) for nausea. Read about these on medscape. Good luck to you.

Would you know if u had a inner ear problem or neuro issues would symptoms be daily for 6 years?

Inner ear/neuro sxs: It may be the inner ear involvement would cause ringing in the ear, vertigo and balance problems, and hearing loss which could be subtle at first. Sometimes an acoustic neuroma or cholesteatoma or Menierre's dz can go undiagnosed for a long time. Hopefully, you are seeing an ENT specialist and neurologist to rule these things out. Symptoms can be intermittent or more noticable at times.

Can a inner ear problem cause you to have warm sensations on the left side of your head and or spasm's?

Can a inner ear problem cause you to have warm sensations on the left side of your head and or spasm's?

Inner Ear/Sensations: Warm sensations with spasms do not suggest to me a simple inner ear problem unless it is associated with dizziness and ringing in the ear. I would have a doctor take a look and do an MRI to see if there is another reason for the spasm. I would be concerned about other neurological problems because of the spasms.

Does having a head cold cause dizziness after the cold has past? What if you don't know if you have an inner ear problem? Could a cold bring it out?

Possible: Colds can have you feeling weird and dizzy afterwards. Viral respiratory infections sometimes lead to vestibular neuritis (inflammation of the cranial nerve that controls balance) which will lead to a very specific form of dizziness called vertigo.

Is Divertigo safe? Does it work? I have some sort of inner ear problem they they say is labyrinthitis but it's been almost 3 months Possible? Help plz

VERTIGO W/U: Vertigo W/U must be very through. You need full exam&Labs. Especially focused NEURO exam to check for nystagmus. If it appears Post-Viral or BPV. A short course of steroids may help. OTC PRoducts may help as well. I recommend Antivert (meclizine). If SX Persia or worsen, a CT SCAN AND ENT&NEURO CONSULT may be warranted. Also follow a gluten free low salt diet. WHOLEAPPROACH.

How does ENT check inner ear problem? Head scanning?

How does ENT check inner ear problem? Head scanning?

Hearing and balance: By checking the hearing through a hearing test and balance through a test known as an eng we evaluate the inner ear. Head scanning is used to look for anatomical problems or tumors but head scanning does not check inner ear function.

Is it safe to fly if I have an inner ear problem that sometimes can cause dizziness?

Yes: Usual commercial aircraft have cabin pressures that are the same as on the ground. During takeoff and landing these pressures may change, but you can use decongestants, nose sprays, and clearing methods to keep the pressures stable. Yawning helps to open the inner ear, and chewing gum may also help. As your doctor for medication to take just before takeoff and landing to help.
