Re: Headache

Mary, this is exactly what happened to me 3 years ago. After a lot of antibiotics to clear up inner ear infections, going to see an ENT for some PPD (or something like that), a neurologist to check for brain cysts, I was finally sent to a specialist who diagnosed me as having meniere's disease. You have the low body temperature, the spinning, and the ringing in your ears. I spent the entire year in and out of the hospital and they finally stabilized me with water pills and allergy pills. If I take them every day, the dizziness stays gone. I still hear the ringing but not as often, and I feel the pressure (almost burning pressure) in my ears, especially if I don't take the water pill.

It would be worth looking into. It took a whole year for someone to figure out what I had, I hope it doesn't take that long for you. Good luck and let us know what you find out.
