Fluid in Skull/Ear/forehead and over right eye Help!

I am 21 years old and I have been suffering from a year long problem. Last year I was cleaning my ears and I (god knows why) thought I lodged too much of the wax in my ear when cleaning it, so I put water in my (right)ear to clear it. Problem is the water never came back out.If I moved my head from side to side I could feel it moving and the wet feeling of it but it would not come out.

This caused no pain just the irritating sensation of the whole thing and it not coming out. I took swim ear to help with this. Worked for a little bit but proble came right back. Not to mention that after I took swim ear I began to feel pin ***** needles in my head and had a nauseating feeling. So I stopped taking it. I also took the ear drop anti biotic that was given to me to take by a Dr in the ER department. That did not work. A couple of months down the line and I start having problems with both ears as opposed to one. Went to ENT , took a hearing test (fine) took several anti biotics (nothing). I was basically prepared to live with ths problem. It was more of an irritation then anything.

Flash forward around feb of 06, I beging doing exercise. I started spinning a little bit and stopped. When I stopped miraculously I noticed that the feeling in my ears had gone. (Yay!) problem was whatever the hell was in my ear went right to my skull.

Here are my symptoms

Depening on where I move either left or right there is some small pool of fluid that I feel that is moving from side to side. When this first started to happen whatever it was, was spilling in the front of my face (almost like water dripping slowing over your face if you were splashed with water). It dropped onto my eyes to my jaw etc. It basically felt like fluid was from the top of my head was spilling over to my face.

This problem persisted for months.(currently) it seems to be getting worse. Instead of it now falling all over my face, it is now slowing spilling to the right and left side of my eye( my eyes and forhead sometimes twistches and jerks), down to my throat, and over my chest/back area. When it does this I feel pressure on my chest until it contines to move all the way throughout my body.Even my arms. It feels like cold water falling in my body. Strangest sensation. It is now focused now on my forehead and some of whatever it is has either spilled behind my eye because my right eye fills like water is behind it and it sometimes stings/burns if I open it wide enough. My forehead feels likes it is hot due to the spilling. I sometimes feel dull aches of pain in certain areas of my head. Sometimes when I close my eyes I feel a little dizzy, but not to the point where I will lose my balance.

I have had an MRI, CT Scan, blood work, and I have just as of yesterday had a chest x-ray (I have no hope of them finding anything). All of these tests have come out perfect. When I first had an MRI done the dr. said that my adenoid glands (which when I was a child had them removed) had grown back but it was not life threatening and nothing to worry about it. I have taken muscle relaxers, deconex (which basically helps with decongestion). Allegra, Bynodryl, Zrytex, Flonaze, Ibuprofen, Amoxicillon, Avalox etc I have never taken so many drugs in my life. Not one of them is helping me. This is becoming unbearable. Does anyone have any suggestions to what I can do or have similar sensations?

If they don't figure it out soon... I can suggest the Mayo Clinic.. Its possible that they might be able to help you in some way.
