    Feeling Woozy, sensitive to sounds and eye pain

    Do any of you folks have symptoms like this:

    Brief background: I have been diagnosed as having meniere syndrom but I've never been truly dizzy with vertigo. I do have profound hearing loss.

    Lately I've been feeling wozzy/queasy with increased intolerance of sound (at almost any volume) and a strange feeling in my eyes, forehead, and scalp of tightness or compression like what you get with a tension headache but there is no pain, just a very disorienting and uncomfortable sensation.

    Someone in another forum mentioned the feeling of being spaced-out, like the feeling you get when you take Nytquil or strong decongestants. I feel like that even though I'm not taking any medication.

    Curious if anyone shares these symptoms...

    Hi aronis,

    Yep, I have all those symptoms and more. Have not been diagnosed with Meniere's however, or anything inner ear related that should correlate with the symptoms. (damned neuro-otologist assumes I only have an auditory processing disorder).

    Though I've had some degree of these sensations long term, they got worse when I had some injury to my right ear a few weeks back. I re-kindled the symptoms this week, simply by putting my finger in my ear to scratch and it creating a moderately loud suction upon release.

    As of now I am dizzy, quite fatigued, and feel disconnected from the right side of my visual field (even visual processing in that eye has been distorted to the point where I don't understand what I am looking at). When I move too vigorously or when a sound of a certain frequency is presented to the right ear, I get rocking boat vertigo, a sharp pain through my sinuses and behind my eyes, and often feel quite faint. Sometimes I get a little nauseated too. Not to mention confusion and cognitive problems through the roof.

    You could also be suffering from migraines that are being triggered by abnormal signals from the inner ear. They are called vestibular or basilar migraines, and I suffer from those too, though I don't know if they are related to what is currently going on with me. Something to look into with a neurologist or your ear doc. if you have not the way there are some who believe Meniere's is a form of vestibular migraine, so your Menieres is probably going to play a role.
