Lupus and ear problelms

I was diagnosed with lupus about five years ago.  So far I suffer from fatigue, joint pain, esp in my hands, skin patches etc.  Question---I was also diagnosed with an inner ear problelm two years ago called benign paroxysmal positional vertigo.  I had some hearing loss and high pitched noise in my ear---still do at times.  Went through exercises etc and after a year the dizziness and nausea passed.  Now I suffer from pain behind the ear and it hurts to even lay my head on a pillow.  Currently being treated for possible mastoid infection but never had an ear infection.  The pain has been horrible, even codeine has only taken the edge off.  Antibiotics seem to have helped but still have an aching in the bone and deep in my ear.  Sometimes I feel like I have ice water in my ear.  Is there any autoimmune disorder involving the ear besides menieres? Or does anyone have any thoughts?  Will have to see ENT again and then rheumatologist if it isn't any better.
