I appear to have a eustachian tube disorder that may have been caused by flying with an ear infection. My ears pop constantly and I have intermittent episodes of vertigo. My doctor prescribed Meclizine, which I took one course of. When the pressure in my ears changes, I feel pain in some other part of my body-- variously my fingers, arms, chest, neck, feet or toes, but not all at once. The pains are sharp and sudden, like an electric shock. Taking Meclizine or Benadryl seems to make the problem worse after the medicine wears off. I am visiting my doctor again on Tuesday but in the meantime I wondered if anyone had any information on what this might be, as googling turns up very little. As a couple of times the pain has been so severe that I thought I was having a heart attack, I have had chest and head x-rays and a CBC test, all of which were normal.
hmmm... a lot of people with vertigo develop anxiety which sounds silly, but it can lead to all of the problems you describe. Stick with a dr and find out what's going on. Let us know when you get some results. Hope you get some relief soon!
I have been having this problem for years..my ears pop and are constantly blocked and feel full, and I have wicked pain in my chest and shoulders that may or may not be related. I have had a couple of times when there is blood from my right ear. Can anyone relate or help me with this problem? I have had chest xrays and ct scan all normal..it feels as if I have a spot in my lung but doctor says no..help please!
