for the past 3weeks ive been feeling off balance i dont feel dizzy or vomit when i walk or when im at work feels like im drunk. not to drunk. plus my right ear would hurt then my left would hurt then it goes away and comes back. could this be a inner ear problem.
Hi, vertigo is related with inner ear problem. There are other causes like cervical spondylosis, brain lesion, acoustic neuroma etc. The cause should be investigated for proper diagnosis and treatment.
Investigations like MRI, auditory tests etc will be helpful in diagnosis. Symptomatic treatment for vertigo due to inner ear pathology is sedatives along with anti cholinergics.
i had a mri done a couple weeks back plus a cat scan everything came back normal. i had blood work done and a ekg. all was normal. like u said inner ear problem my balance is off. but i dont get dizzy or vomit. make a appointment with the ent doctor.
My husband had the same thing that appears you have. I am not sure what it is called I am not sure if it is vertigo. but they say a crystal broke off in his ear causing all of this and it could take up to 3 months to get better. he did not have a mri or anything they just went by his symptoms and I honestly can remember if they gave hi medication or not
good luck and I hope you feel better
hi michelle its called benign positional vertigo. its caused by a inner ear problem. plus a theres a thing called epleys manuever. what it does its excersise that can reposition the crystals in the ear.
