dizziness/panic/ear popping swooshing sounds

I've had BPPV episodes in the past, but last Fri night seemed different and I had a panic attack and went to urgent care. Dr diagnosed me with vertigo. Prescribed meclizine and paperwork on the Epley maneuver. Meds made me zombie like and I'm afraid to do the exercise at home. I felt a little better after a few days then had another episode, since then my ears feel full and when I lay down at night they pop and I feel a swoosh/draining sensation. I'm afraid I might loose my hearing. I'm uninsured and don't know what or who I should see.

I have BPPV have had it off and on for ten years. Never get a swishing noise when I lay down, but if I turn the wrong way in bed then the room will spin..thats the vertigo part...bad episodes resist treatment by the Epley ecercise and currently have it on both sides which is rare...is affecting my vision, making things blurry...far as I know there is no meds for BPPV. Am looking into anti depressants as it affects my mood.

Re: dizziness/panic/ear popping swooshing sounds

Have you ever seen a maxillary surgeon., one that specializes or has strong knowledge of TMJ. You probably need a soft splint for your mouth when you sleep.you would be uo there in severe tmj issues. The second thing would be to make sure your vascular system and hormones are good. You can also see a nuero opthamologist if your eyes are involved, one if them should be able to help and guide you.

no tmj, have had good work up....BPPV is not uncommon in seniors...it is just unfortunate that I now have it on both sides...at the same time, which is unusual but not unheard of....takes too long to get an apt with the specialist (ear nose and throat guy) so going to try using a physiotherapist that I can get in to see quickly....and going to ask my doctor this morning about a mild anti depressant as when it is this bad it depresses the hell out of me...thanks for your feedback...
