Vertigo attacks!
What i presume to be "Vertigo attacks" started happening again not long after i'd just had my first ear syrying due to my ear canals being so full of wax, it strikes out of the blue even when i'm sat still, its infuriating,nauseating and my depression cracked under the stress because of it all. Although this isnt the first case of it i've ever had its been happening recently and quite often. the last time i was prescribed a medicine (i cant remember the name) but that helped and it never returned this bad until now.

Symptoms -

Nausea
Tinnitus in the ears
Lost balance feeling weak in the legs
Feels like my body is pulsing or being stretched n pulled (that sounds so weird but, thats what it feels like!)
Feels like the floor is coming closer or dropping under me
Worse when i move my head or try to move around during an "attack"

I'm bad with anxiety and my depression has seriously gotten worse to the point that i was put back on citalopram 20mg, and i started smoking again :(

I'm waiting on a blood test but....just what is it thats doing this?, has anyone else encountered this?

It sounds like you need to go back to your ENT to have your ears rechecked. You may have some fluid build up. And if you were on a med for it before, you can talk to the Dr about going on it again.

It most definitely sounds like an inner ear problem could be causing the symptoms you describe...they would all be typical of an inner ear problem.  Get back to the ENT and have a work-up done!
