    Question Can inner ear problems cause memory problems?

    Of lately, I've been getting an off balance feeling..like my equilibrium is off. It gets worse if i take in caffeine or alcohol. The feelings have come on slowly, but not it seems to be getting progressively worse..like its a 24/7 feeling.

    I think that i might have an inner ear problem because i have constant ringing in my ears and i found out that balance problems can be derived from ear problems.

    Growing up I've had all kind of ear problems - bacterial infections, hole in the eardrum, where i was rushed to the ER, tubes in my ears. So that would seem to make sense that maybe it is causing me problems now.

    Anyways, my only concern is this...can inner ear problems also cause memory problems..my memory has gotten worse and worse over the years and it's gotten to the point where its almost ridiculously bad.

    I'm scared that maybe my off balance feelings are more than just ear problems..maybe it's something worse.

    Any feedback or advice or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks

    oh btw im 20 y/o female. ive also had problems with my vision lately.
