fluid in both ears vertigo/anxiety

im 29
i was diagnosed with anxiety and panic attacks after i got dizzy one night
was started on zoloft and hated it then was given celaxa and refused to take it
my blood work showd my white blood high but my dr never checked me for infection..
i moved from illinois to tennessee and was very dizzy and scared i was having an attack
went to ER in tennessee they said i had vertigo not anxiety .
my family dr never checked my ears both were clogged with fluid causing my issues
my new family DR says
could that really cause my dizzyness numb head and head pain she says yes what all do you think..
i still take ativan if i need it cause i do panic with the vertigo
you guys think this could have been it all along and i worried myself to death
my left ear has now cleared up but my right still hase fluid my dr said no more antibotics just let it drain down throat
so how long can vertigo last i feel dizzy and feels like my head is shaking when now is this normal
i do take 3 mclizine aday for vertigo doesnt seem to work
seen new dr and she said i still have the fluid in both ears thats causing my vertigo
can vertigo make you feel spacey like not there? and nausea..
she told me keep taking mcelizine because it takes a full month to start working and to take coricidian to try and dry it out
any advice on this
can a ER drain my ears

Re: fluid in both ears vertigo/anxiety

Your new doctor is on the right path, stick with her and you will soon be fine. It does take time to clear fluid in the ears and vertigo. Vertigo will cause nausea.

Re: fluid in both ears vertigo/anxiety

Its funny I saw this because I had just went to doctor not to long ago for feeling light headed and dizzy all the time. I get headaches atleast once everyday. I was diagnosed with anxiety about 4 years ago. I havent had a pill for 6 months. I still feel the dizzyness and the lightheadedness all the time. I learned to deal with it and to control myself. But sometimes it feels like I cant breath. The new doctor I go to says I have drainage in my ears as well. She just prescribed mezline to me 2 weeks ago. I took one and it seemed to help alittle bit. She said If it doesnt work I will have to come back in and she thinks it could be a chronic inner ear infection. Whcih she said therapy would take care of the problem (yes therapy for your ears, its true). Now I would tell your doctor you want to see an ear specialist. and he might diagnose you with chronic ear infection which at that point you could either do therapy or have ear tubes (which i wouldnt suggest, I heard its very painful). Good luck. Im on the same path as you

Re: fluid in both ears vertigo/anxiety

ameyers6...I'm glad your under a new Drs. care and yes, fluid in your ear or ears can cause vertigo and with it draining can cause nausea. I've had it happen a few times and it is really a nightmare and seems to last forever but hang in there. Like you I tried just about everything but just had to ride it out for almost 2 months..NOT fun!

Have you been to an ENT Dr. or just a regular family Dr.? I believe it can be drained by an ENT but heard it is quite uncomfortable. Just do as your Dr. is telling you and hopefully it won't last much longer.

Best of wishes...JJ...
When you come to the end of your rope..tie a knot and hang on!
