I hope to not upset you but I was having similar things happen and I was severely stressed. Stress & Depression will cause the dizziness, headaches, ear pooping, and neck pains. I thought I was losing my mind. Try something different each week from what your doing. I had to do that for about 3 weeks. I am so praying you get better.

Sorry to hear that you are unwell and have lost your job as a result.

Did the doctor examine your ears and throat at all?  

Although you may be suffering from anxiety and depression, you may have a viral or bacterial infection.

The heavyness in your head and ears as well as dizzy turns can also be caused by blocked ears from ear wax.

A head cold with painful ears and the side of the neck hurting and especially as your ears sound like popping can be from a mucus build up in the eustation tube.  If you have that it is likely that you may have an infection that is coming either from your throat or from your ears.

Throat and ear infections can also make you feel unwell and dizzy.  Any type of infection, viral or bacterial can make you feel aching all over as well as tired.

As a home remedy to try to alleviate the mucus pressure in your neck and head, do steam inhalations.  Get a bowl of hot water with vick or olbas oil and breathe in the steam with a towel over your head.  Take care not to get scaleded.  You can also buy some nasal spray to help loosen the mucus, but don't use it for too long because it can make this worse.

I would suggest you go back to the doctor (see a different one in the practice if it helps) and ask him to check your ears and throat, you may need an antibiotic to clear up any infection in the ears (or have your ears suringed if they are blocked).  Also ask him to check your blood pressure.  Blood pressure can also make you dizzy and have a headache, but not popping or pain in the neck.

See how you get on, but if the doctor cannot find anything, I suggest you ask him to refer you to a ears nose and throat specialist.

I have had pain down the side of my neck and painful ears with popping and it is no fun.  

Also you could try something like Lemsip.  Also drink plenty of hot drinks and add fresh lemon juice and honey.

Wishing you a speedy recovery.

Let me know how you get on.
