Ear noises driving me crazy - dizziness

For what seems like an eternity I have been getting pounding in my ears. Its like I can hear blood rushing and pulses all the time. I keep feeling really dizzy and spaced out too. When I go to the toilet and push I have to hold on to the wall as I go so very dizzy and the blood rushes round my head so fast it is scary. I can get dizzy any time. When I lie down to sleep the pounding in my ears drives me nuts. I get very spaced out a lot of the time too and feel very very tired. can anyone shed any light on what might be wrong please?

Thanks for reading.

Re: Ear noises driving me crazy - dizziness

Hello, I was wondering how old you are because it could be related to menopause. I also have the same symptoms as you discribe. They do seem to be ciclicle, sometimes it's ringing in my ears and than comes the dizziness. I am 48 and have been going through this for 3 years now along with other symptoms of menopause.

Re: Ear noises driving me crazy - dizziness

Hi,
Strange you should say that! I have also been having what appeared to be cystitis on and off for months but all urine tests come back clear ( a doc suggested I may be starting the menopause). I get headaches nearly every day too. I am 46. Since I posted I scoured the net and found a disorder called something like Pulsatile tinnitus. It can have loads of causes. One of them is to do with neck arteries being compressed and I have cervical spondylitis and fibromyalgia which both give me neck pain?
Perhaps I should rule out menopause by asking for a test.
Thanks again

Re: Ear noises driving me crazy - dizziness

What about seeing an ENT? I have dizziness (vertigo) - for many years - it comes and goes. This type of specialist is the best one to diagnose these symptoms and ear "noises" as well (tinnitus). I've never heard of menapause causing dizziness.

Re: Ear noises driving me crazy - dizziness

I have suffered with benign positional vertigo and ordinary vertigo and to be honest I can say this isnt true vertigo. Its just a sudden vague dizziness made worse by stooping, bending over, raising my voice, getting anxious etc etc.
I do get spaced out...like I am not quite here if you know what I mean. I can also fluctuate from feeling slow and then speedy. I do get occasional heart flutters too. Its the damn pounding in my ears that worrying me and the constant nausea especially in the mornings.. I am under inverstigation for possble ulcer at the moment but perhaps I coud make a start by asking if my ears could be syringed at my local doctors surgery.

thanks for all your input.

Re: Ear noises driving me crazy - dizziness

You learn something everyday!! I've been in menopause for 8 years now. My dizziness started long before that, unfortunately.
