Is it normal that I have had an ear infection for 7 days & been on antibiotics for 5 days but still have dizziness & some pain?

Ear infection? Sometimes doctors may not accurately diagnose "ear infections." if you have only pain and no difficulty hearing an no discharge or drainage you may have a pain problem and not an infection problem. In the case of a pain problem it might not be your ear but your jaw joint. Too often doctors treat pain with antibiotics and the ear is actually ok. That is why patients think the antibiotics don't work.
