Head pressure, intermittent hearing loss one ear, nerve wracking

I posted this on the general board but realize now, after looking at other posts, it should be here: This began almost 4 weeks ago!
I've seen my ENT doctor, have taken 2 weeks of Valtrex and Prednisone for what is diagnosed as viral caused hearing loss. I had an MRI of the head and it was ok. For a week now, my head feels such pressure (just in the upper portion), and the hearing comes and goes in one ear. When it goes, my tinnitus (which I have all the time), is much better, but is replaced by a 'windy type roar' sound. When the hearing comes back, the tinnitus is awful and the pressure feeling in the head is worse---like today. I feel sort of dizzy but not the spinning sensation. If I bend over and/or get up from a lying down position, the dizziness is more so. It is 'nerve wracking' to say the least. I keep hoping this will correct itself. I have a follow up appt. in 3 weeks. I'm 'back and forth' with calling to see him sooner. I just hate the thought of more tests. I'm a senior /female and in otherwise good health. Just wonder what on earth is going on? Any thoughts? thanks
My heart rate is always slow (I take Toprol and Diovan for hbp) but it's been only 58 per min. all day. Could that make me feel this way?
