Whilst in Holland early this July, I developed, over the course of about half an hour to an hour, dizziness so severe I was unable to walk, nausea [and vomited several times], a bad fever and terrible earache in my left ear extending into my head. I was taken to the hospital there with suspected meningitis, where I was diagnosed with, and treated for, a migraine. Upon my return to England two days later, I was told it was a bacterial ear infection and treated accordingly with antibiotics and Stemetil. Although this was of some help, I have since suffered from a persistent pressurising sensation in my ears, whcih no medication has been able to clear. I have also suffered a minimal amount of hearing loss in my left [affected] ear, and have frequent earaches, occasionally lasting for a few hours and being a minor, dull pain, and occasionally a sharp, more severe pain lasting for a minute or so. Dizzy spells also occur if move too fast, and I am often unusually fatigued, suffereing from muscle weakness, and with sysmptoms such as confusion and a lack of concentration; I also feel rather "spaced out" fairly often. I saw an ENT specialist a week ago, who informed me I had viral labyrinthitis. However, he could find no damage to my ears, no blockages in the eustachain tubes, and no reason for the pain/pressure.
So, my questions are, what could be causing the pressure in my ears? And how can it be treated?
I am currently taking no medication, so what is causing the fatigue et cetera?
Apologies for the length
