OK, about three weeks ago I started having clogged up ears like when you've got sinus drainage, I woke up the next morning so dizzy that I could barely walk. If I moved from a laying down position (my head had to be resting against something) I would throw up from nausea. I had no fever and couldn't stop the dizziness or vomitting, so I went to the ER. The Dr. there did a CT scan and gave me some Adivert for the dizziness and some Phenagen (spelling?) for the nausea, told me to follow up with my Primary Care Physician. Slowly the dizziness got better, (no thanks to the Adivert though) and when I went to my Dr. he diagnosed me with Labrynthitis and told me it was viral so it had to run its course. I slowly got better and was fine until this past Friday (approximately 3wks after the first bought). My ears were clogged again in the morning. In the afternoon, I started to get dizzy slowly and it got worse on Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday. I never got nauseated this time though. As I slowly got better, my left ear began to itch inside. The itching lasted for two days, when I would "scratch" it, it would hurt and any kind of pressure change (yawning, burping) would hurt. The next day, my left ear hurt a great deal. It also started oozing a little bit of a puss like substance. I go to an ENT tomorrow, but I don't know what to expect. I'm very worried and don't want to have to go through all that I know I'm going to have to go through. Anyone able to help?
