Bending Over and inner ear??

I am awaiting more inner ear tests, but not until October. I had BPPV in December, had room spin twice. Had Epleys and some VRT for about 2 months. No spinning since thankfully. Did not have as much VRT as I probably should have due to very bad insurance with very high deductibles and co pays.

I thought I was getting better, but had big time anxiety hit. I had all kinds of symptoms, some which I don't think have anything to do with anxiety, and have asked about on here before, such as occasional flickering of vision when looking at computer or vision flickering when chewing on ice. Also have a hard time getting out of bed so I don't feel sort of dizzy or off balance.

This morning I bent over to pick something up and I felt a little whoozy when I got up. I was down for only 1 or 2 seconds, not hardly much at all. Could that be inner ear related?

I have had low BP in past, but never got these kinds of feelings. I think they are inner ear related, but don't know for sure. I have also had back and neck problems for years ( muscle mostly) and have gone to Chiropractors for years. I don't think its neck related, but don't know for sure. I have heard someone can get dizzy from some neck problems.

I have recently had my BP and heart checked out, and was told they are ok. I do have anxiety symptoms that I had back in 2003, but back then without ear problems. I had low BP big time back then. Back then did not have problem getting out of bed, bending over and such. Had same internal shaking, loss of appetite, tired, frequent bathroom trips etc.

I have all those now again, after 4 years of being better, now with what I think is this added inner ear problem. I saw an neuro-otologist in July, he did some manual testing, did not tell me much, but ordered an ENG and rotary chair test or October.

I take small amounts of ativan as needed to help me thru this. I take a small 0.5mg dose, and usually take 1/2 or less of the pill. Some days only once, some days 2 or 3 times a day.

Sorry for the long background. Can bending over briefly to pick something up cause woozy feelings from the inner ear?
