For the past week I have been dizzy, nonstop, all day. It's a waving dizziness, like I am on a boat.
I am currently tapering off of Paxil, so this could be a side effect of withdrawal, but I don't feel like it is because I recently went back up in dosage and it hasn't gone away.
My question is - I wear earplugs every night to sleep and I'm wondering if this can cause labyrinthitis. I usually change them every few days when they get dirty, but I suppose there is still bacteria on them which can cause an infection. I have no pain in my ears, only the following symptoms:
1) Vertigo, spinning, waving feeling.
2) Feelings of pressure on temples and forehead (not all the time, not painful).
3) Dull headaches off and on.
4) Cracking, fluttering feeling in left ear when I burp or yawn.
Again, I want to emphasize that I feel no pain in my ears... weird?
