Unhappy Inner ear problem; please help!!!

My ear has been acting up since before Halloween. It rings, it buzzes, it echos. Well, now it's been plugged for weeks too. I went to Urgent Care; twice. It's not infected, not ear wax, not sinus, not allergy. I have tried every medication they can give me, over the counter meds, and home made tricks. NO PAIN.

(it has occasionally echoed, and rang for years, but nothing like this)

I am working to see an ENT, but I'm waiting for my insurance to approve it.

I have vertigo. I feel really really disoriented, and I'm not sure if it's because I can't hear well, or if it's something else.

It's not fluid feeling plugged, there's no movement inside of it. So far the only relief I had was from steroids, 4 days, it didn't fix it, but it made it a little better.

Has anyone had this?
What can this be?

I'm a 22 year old female, other wise healthy other than TMJ.

The only other thing, I think is vertigo related, my vision shifts right and left when I try to read.

That's called nystagmus.

I remember having a lot of fullness when I had Vestibular Neuritis. I hope you get in to see a specialist soon! Best wishes!

Re: Inner ear problem; please help!!!

check out to see if you have an acoustical neuroma. i do and presents the same symptons as yours. i am awaiting an m.r.i. for definitive diagnosis. they are a type of benign tumor which attach to the auditory nerve. its usually a wait and watch situation but the can do surgery to remove it or radiation. good luck
