can exercise trigger dizziness and ear problems?

Hi

Ever since I started working out, I've been gradually getting dizzy. It started with subtle dizziness so I brushed it off. But it has gotten worse. I almost fell over on Sunday (felt like heavy pressure and oxygen draining out of my brain suddenly).

I do have TMJ- but I feel off/spacey/weird in the morning and weak at times. I feel off balance. Then during the day it gets better and then gets bad again in the evening. The dizziness/weird feeling is on and off.

Is there a self test I can do to see if I have an inner ear disorder? My ear drum pulsates from time to time, but I do not have any hearing loss. Just dizziness for the most part. My eyes feel like it's burning sometimes too.

Re: can exercise trigger dizziness and ear problems?

The best thing you can do if you think you have an inner ear problem is to see an neuro-otologist. Do not go see an ENT. Typically, your average ear, nose and throat doc knows very little about inner ear disorders.

And you may want to simply start with your internal medicine doc and get a referral from ther.
Dizziness could be caused by things other than the inner ear, such as blood pressure.

There are a few inner ear "self-tests" but they are not really going to diagnose you.
You can try marching in place for 50 steps with your eyes closed.
Open your eyes and see if you have rotated to one side.
That *could* indicate a problem.

Try to walk heel to toe with your eyes open.
The inability to do so could also indicate a problem.

Thank you for the reply. I did the marching and noticed I rotate to the right a little bit. I'm worse at night for some reason and feel weak at times affecting legs. I'm so scared at this point. I am alone with my two young kids and this isn't helping. I need to be strong and healthy to take of them.
