An ear infection? Or something else?

Hi there!

For the past three weeks I have been going through a lot. It all started with awful migraines that I thought were simply a result of my pregnancy. (I'm 22 weeks along.) Then, the pain began to shift to my ear and neck and became very intense. I was given antibiotics and was told I had sinusitis.

I went back into the doctor to check on things about half way through my antibiotics. My doctor noticed dried blood in my ear and irrigated it out, telling me I had a middle ear infection. He said the eardrum looked fine, and that I should be fine by the time my antibiotic was finished.

I finished my antibiotic, and am starting to feel really strange. I have blurry vision, primarily in my left eye. I also feel... off. Not really dizzy, but not really grounded, either. My parents seem to think it is just my ear infection running its course, and the dizziness is simply fluid left in my ear. Any thoughts? I'm crazy worried, especially with this growing baby depending on my good health. Not only that, but I have myself convinced that I have something awful like a tumor. I know it's probably ridiculous. Thanks for your help.
