I thought I had experienced about everything pertaining to inner ear but now this. When I gently blow my nose I feel like I am about to pass out. It feels almost like I'm about to have a vertigo attack. Anyone experience this & what causes it? Thanks.
I have this too, not the perilymph fistula, but when blow my nose I feel as if I am going to pass out, not sure what it is caused from other then the pressure of our sinuses and vertigo may play a part in it.
I get dizzy (or extremely lightheaded) everytime I blow my nose also - it's a symptom of Meniere's Disease. It's not life threatning but there is no cure and it can get very frustrating to deal with on a day to day basis. Some good days and some bad - I definitely seem to be sensitive to barametric changes in the weather (especially when it's overcast or rain is on the way or in the vicinity).
