it could be Meniere's disease. That is basically tinnitus with dizziness and loss of hearing. Do you have nay other symptoms. It could also be an ear infection with some other underlying infection, I would see an ENT or your regular dr.
Tinnitus could be caused by a number of things, stress, cafiene intake, diet, hormones, medications, hearing loss etc etc etc.
To say Menieres based off of a complaint of tinnitus is sad really. Menier's usually 4 symptoms
Ménière's disease is usually characterized 4 symptoms.
1) Periodic episodes of rotatory vertigo or dizziness.
2) Fluctuating, progressive, low-frequency hearing loss
4) A sensation of "fullness" or pressure in the ear.
Sounds like you may have multiple problems going on. See your regular doctor and be sure to mention all three symptoms (ear pain, lightheadedness, and shortness of breath). I am not sure whether there is one thing that would cause all three. Anxiety or cardiovascular problems can cause the last two, but these would not cause ear pain. Ear pain could be an ear infection, TMJ problem, or something else.
Dr. Jimmy is right about the symptoms of Meniere's. Doesn't sound like you have Meniere's at all.
