Blocked ear when I put my head back which causes hearing loss, clears when I lean forward. Keep getting dizzy spells & ringing in my ear. Am I ok?

Serous otitis media. You are describing symptoms of fluid behind the ear drum which moves when you move your head forward and backwards. Change in hearing, dizziness and ringing in your ears all can be caused by this condition, serous otitis media. Vertigo is caused by an inflammation of the semi-circular canals behind the ear drum and resolves when treated. See your physician for treatment.

I am 21 and I was having my medicine for acidity (omozor-dm) which caused dizziness and sudden 35db hearing loss in right ear, is it reversible or not?

Not sure. I am assuming you took Omeprazole for your acidity. It is not known to have hearing loss as one of its side effects. Only tinnitus is described as one of the complications, you may benefit from seeing an ENT doctor to look for other causes of hearing loss. Good luck. Read more...
See ENT. I am not familiar with the medication named, but am unaware of any side effects of acid-reducing medications causing sudden hearing loss and dizziness.

However, there are other causes for this same complex of symptoms so you cannot confirm the diagnosis without proper evaluation and testing. See your doctor. Read more...

Meniere's disease? Are you having headaches as well? With vertigo, hearing loss and tinnitus (ringing in the ears perhaps??) you've described 3/4 symptoms of Ménière's disease, the only last symptom being headaches on the side of the hearing loss and ringing in the ear. You'd need an MRI to know that the inner ears and brain in general look OK. Treatment for this is challenging. Read more...
