What Is Visual Vertigo
Vretigo from vision: Some people, myself included, can get vertigo and dizzy from looking at things that are moving rapidly. An example of this are the high definition video games that people play. If the characters in the game move rapidly from place to place, up and down, it can make you dizzy and nauseous. Reading your cell phone in the car can also make you very dizzy. The eyes are hard wired into the inner ear. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My head is very tender and keep getting all sorts of visual disturbances, dizziness and other symps. Docs thought migraine after ophthalmic exam but it's been a month. Very worried. What should I do?
Not all related: The popping of the ears can be easily explained by Eustachian tube opening when you swallow. This is absolutely normal and you are just aware of a normal physiological activity.

But certainly consult an eye physician for the latter problem. ...Read more

Depends how long: Acute vertigo from a viral illness is best treated by Prednisone and valium. I am not a big fan of Antivert (meclizine) preferring Valium or other meds like it. Long term vertigo is best treated with vestibular rehabilitation therapy.
