    Ear fullness/popping sound with unsteadiness


    Could you let me your opinion to guide me ? Please let me know if you need more input from me.

    Thanks a lot.

    Around Mid February 2016 I noticed some infrequent popping sound in my left year

    One day in late February, when I stood up from the chair, I had an episode as follows:

    For about 10 seconds I had a severe lightheadedness (However I did not feel spinning sensation/vertigo)
    After the 10 seconds, I felt dizziness to some degree.
    Had Nausea to some degree

    Next day I started feel(or noticed) persistent popping sound and ear fullness.

    Things calmed down after few days, however I caught flu after few weeks and I think it made it worse.

    Now I could describe my symptoms as follows:

    1) Persistent ear popping sound. Also I notice it's more persistent when I take a the elevator.
    2) Sometimes I feel slight dizziness(lightheadness,unsteadiness), not always though. When I am in a moving vehicle, this is more frequent.
    3) I am not sure if I am having any hearing loss. Sometimes when I feel the ear fullness/dizziness, the hearing becomes a bit weird.
    4) Never had Vertigo(spinning sensation) /No Tinnitus

    Hi Newbie
    I also have what you have, I have had this issue for the last 9 months and its just plain nasty.
    I have every test under the sun, Mri, Ct, scans & xrays all with clear results, so now I am finally going into hospital to have grommets in my ears as its believed to be blocked eustation tubes ( Glue Ear) this is happening next Wednesday so hopefully this is the answer.
