Ear Flush Cause Flu-Like Symptoms?

I went to my GP on Wednesday for a general checkup, and she flushed one of my ears. As she had warned, I experience a small bit of dizziness after the procedure, but it went away after a few minutes, and I felt normal the rest of the day. I felt normal the first part of Thursday, but as the day progressed, I started feeling flu-like symptoms. I wasn't achy and didn't have a fever, but I felt a little dizzy and like I was going to pass out if I stood up for too long (but was able to finish my trip to Target on my way home from work, and I was able to get around my house okay) and fatigued. By the time Friday rolled around, I felt a little less dizzy, but way more fatigued than Thursday, and my concentration at work was shot. Again, no fever. And then Saturday and today, completely back to normal.

Do you think I could've caught the flu and was just fighting it off, or do you think the ear flush could have caused those symptoms?
