Re: Ear pain, headache, vertigo....help me!
Hi Vertigo Mom,
I had a very similar experience. I was watching tv with my 4 month old when out of the blue, the entire room starting spinning. I was terrified to move. Luckily the phone was beside me, I called my MOL to watch the baby, but to lay down was worse. The following day, the extreme dizziness was gone, but I felt terribly unbalanced. I went to the doctor who said I had no congestion, no synus problems and everything looked fine. The horrible dizziness stuck again, and again over the next 2 months. Finally I went for a 2nd opinion and the doctor told me she immediately suspected an inflammation of the inner ear. She put me on a Medrol dosepack and within 5 days all symptoms were gone. I asked her why the symptoms lasted 2 months, would the inflammation not heal itself. She told me as long as its untreated, they symptoms will stay. Im so furious at that first doctor, those were 2 months of hell, and like you, I was terrified driving, leaving the house, etc. Best of luck to you.
