I have this gargling sound in my ears when I wake up and sit up. I also feel dizzy and off balance. What could this be?

Been swimming?: Or even dunked your head in the bath? This sounds rather like water trapped in your ear canals. You can put half white vinegar and half rubbing alcohol in while lying down and then sit up and let it run out again to help dry the canals up and prevent any infection. If it keeps up, you should have someone take a look at a clinic. It doesn't sound serious. ...Read more

Get checked: This could represent a spontaneous (versus traumatic) rupture of your eardrum. Please go get this checked by your doc tomorrow or very soon. Be well! ...Read more

Get it checked: It could be damage to the inner ear organs, the cochlea and semicircular canals. It's hard to specify without investigating the cause, like, could this be a viral infection? Have you been losing hearing in one or both ears? Have you had any recent head trauma? Work with your neurologist and/or ENT specialist to find the cause and treat it. ...Read more

BP is OK: Your BP and pulse are in the normal range, so that is not worrisome. You might have labyrinthitis. Labyrinthitis is a condition that causes sudden dizziness and balance problems. People with this problem also feel sick and might throw up. Often, people feel very ill for a few days and then start to feel better. But sometimes, the symptoms last for weeks. Can be from a viral infection. ...Read more

There are many: Potential causes for low blood pressure (dehydration, anemia, medications, autonomic dysfunction) but the most common is dehydration. Check with your health care provider if you are on medications because they need to be adjusted. Hydrate with water and eat some salty foods if you are not. ...Read more

Ears pop and make a clicking sound when swallowing. Slight dizziness and visual disturbances?

Ears pop and make a clicking sound when swallowing. Slight dizziness and visual disturbances?

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. The slight dizziness is too non-specific to comment on. Both of these symptoms are probably not related to the visual disturbance. But certainly consult an eye physician for the latter problem. ...Read more

Anxiety, see a PCP: Anxiety symptoms are not a sign of illness, they are the mind's ability to produce the "flight or fight" response which gives rise to many physiological changes include chest pains, parasthesia, dry mouth, aphasia, tremor and sweating.

Doc plz help me I am having a rapid thumping sound in my right ear from which I feel dizzy most of the time the sound is growing day bye day help me?

Doc plz help me I am having a rapid thumping sound in my right ear from which I feel dizzy most of the time the sound is growing day bye day help me?

The thumping sound: In the ear suggests the cause is turbulent blood flow. This may come from an obstruction of an artery near the ear, or an AVM/arteriovenous malformation where artery and vein connections meet. Because you are also dizzy there is more concern. See your doctor as soon as possible for an evaluation. While unlikely, an impending stroke assessment should be done. Good wishes:) ...Read more

KeepLookingKeepCalm: The ENT cleared you. OK. And you still have those nasty symptoms, right? So, psychological issues aside (like anxiety, or excessive dieting or stress, or just getting more uptight and upset because of the symptoms themselves, etc) has your regular doctor checked your blood sugar patterns or tested your thyroid with a blood test? Have you discussed seeing a neurologist? There's more here to learn. ...Read more

Ear wax?: When was the last time you had your ears checked. Sometimes a buildup of ear wax can trap fluid (shower water etc). Thisw amy cause the symptoms you have described.

I had a virus, the virus is gone now I have slight ear ache, dizziness, balance problem. Does it sound ear related or possibly MS? Sleep makes it worse

I had a virus, the virus is gone now I have slight ear ache, dizziness, balance problem. Does it sound ear related or possibly MS? Sleep makes it worse

Bet on the virus: Vertigo after a viral upper respiratory infection are fairly common. You can get some inflammation in the vesicular system in your inner ear (part of your ear helping control balance). It goes away after a few days and is nothing to worry about. MS can cause vertigo, but common things be common, bet on the viral infection. If you develop different/new neurology symptoms go see a doc then. ...Read more

Really dizzy & this weird sound in my right ear. It's feels like I am hearing heart beat but it's a muffle. Like when you listen to a baby's heart beat?

Vertigo: Sounds like you have developed vertigo, and I think likely from fluid on your ear. This explains why you are hearing your heart beat and the fluid will cause a pressure change that can refer to your balance gland. Get checked! ...Read more

I've been experiencing dizziness for several months now, with occasional ear pain. Does this sound like a brain tumor or a sinus problem?

Not brain or sinus: It sounds like a jaw problem. Spasm and inflammation of your jaw joint can cause all these symptoms. Do you chew gum? Do you grind or clench your teeth? Try a soft diet, antiinflammatory medication, ice to your jaw joint and consult with a dentist. ...Read more

If: If this is persistent, it should be evaluated by an otolaryngologist (ENT) with an audiogram (hearing test). The most common cause of tinnitus is hearing loss--many times the loss is not detected. Many feel that a certain level of tinnitus may be physiologic and the reaction to the sounds may make the brain feel like it needs to be dealt with so it cannot be ignored. The persistent dizziness should also be checked. The dizziness and tinnitus together can be due to an inner ear problem and should be checked by your ent. ...Read more

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 ...Read more

Help, I have horrible dizzy spells sometimes after standing. Asymmetric pupil dilation, fuzzyness, odd sound in ears like ringing. Doctors found nothing. PTSD was mentioned?

See below: Your symptoms that you mentioned don't sound like PTSD unless there are others that haven't been mentioned. It sounds like more of a problem with your nervous system involving your brainstem, cranial nerves or inner ear. You should see your doctor again. A head CT would help to determine if you have a tumor, infection, stroke or other bleeding in these areas. Please go back soon. ...Read more

Without: Without examining you and reviewing your complete history, it is difficult to say exactly what is causing your problems.

I would first recommend you visit your prescribing physician to review your history and examine you thoroughly, as the potential causes of dizziness is fairly broad list.

But from your list of recent changes, I suspect either the discontinuation of your Paxil (paroxetine) or the addition of your new supplements is likely the cause of your problems.

I would recommend you stop your new supplements, and consider restarting your paxil, (paroxetine) especially if you have stopped that medicine without discussing it with your prescribing physician first.

Best,

Many causes: There are many causes if dizziness. Benign paroxysmal position vertigo can cause spinning dizziness with position changes such as looking in certain directions or rolling over in bed. See an otolaryngologist. I don't know if the other symptoms are related. An evaluation by a primary care doc can can assess these other symptoms and if they are linked. ...Read more
