I recently had a popping sensation in my head followed by intense dizziness. What might be the cause for it?
Otolithic? It seems as if an otolith, which is a calcified structure in the inner ear, may have become dislodged, causing stimulation of nerve fibers resulting in dizziness. A single transient episode is most likely not serious but see an ENT doctor for evaluation if you are concerned, especially if you experience more episodes, loss of balance or hearing loss.
