I get this when I have sinus infection, as it effects the ear area.

Too much booze?
Exhaust fumes?

thanks for replying... smile

do you take anything to help it

Or go to Dr

Or does it just go away by itself?

(Ive never had it before)

I'd guess sinuses too - my first indication that I'm getting a cold is always a sick/dizzy feeling as my sinuses fill up, and then my ears stat to feel blcked. I put Karvol in steam & breath it, or if it's really bad, Sinutab is good.

I get vertigo caused by too much or too little fluid in the middle (?) ear IIRC. Doctor gave me a prescription for betahistine dihydrochloride and I just take one tablet if I wake up with it.

Horrible that is.

I use menthol crystals to draw anything out in a steam, drink lots and lots of water, use something such as Sinutab, but often unfortunately the only thing that clears it are antibiotics.
