Irritation of nerve: dizziness, ringing in the ear combination is due to irritation of the eighth cranial nerve, or vestibulocochlear nerve. It is usually due to in viral infection, rarely is it due to something more aggressive like a benign tumor. Chances are, that you still have it because you may have not been placed on steroids. I find that it is the only thing that takes it away if you have I would see a neurolo

Help please! Is dizziness and ear ringing normal with inner ear infection?

Help please! Is dizziness and ear ringing normal with inner ear infection?

Perhaps: An inner ear infection is extraordinarily rare and is either from meningitis or acute otitis media that has spread, to the inner ear causing deafness and profound vertigo. If you really did have an inner ear infection I would expect you to, have these and other symptoms such as deafness. Mild dizziness and tinnitus are common in otitis media and usually resolve as the fluid behind the drum resolves.

Would pulsatile tinnitus in right ear cause dizziness, if I gently press artery in neck I get even dizzier, so does coughing or any sort of pressure.?

Would pulsatile tinnitus in right ear cause dizziness, if I gently press artery in neck I get even dizzier, so does coughing or any sort of pressure.?

Pulsatile Tinnitus: No, pulsatile tinnitus does not cause dizziness. But, the cause of the tinnitus may be associated with dizziness, that is, what causes one may contribute to the other. You should see an ENT and get to the bottom of your symptoms. They suggest increased pressure inside your head or turbulent blood flow in a large vessel. Both possibilities require tests, such an mri/mra and carotid artery doppler.

Water sounds in both ear, mild dizziness, tinnitus. Using nasonex (mometasone) currently. Would home REM water+salt through eucathian tube to mid ear help infectio?

Probably not: Would be very difficult to get salt water solution up eustacian tube and probably uncomfortable. If only present for few days will probably resolve by itself. If present for more than a couple of weeks see ENT, to determine if infection present or just serous effusion
