User avatar Hello -

While this is likely due to an inner ear or sinus problem, the fact that you're suffering from disabling vertigo (or possibly actually faintness), and are in significant pain, I would strongly recommend you be seen either at an emergency department or walk-in acute care facility.

I hope this is helpful and that you'll follow up with us as needed, and please update us after you've been seen. Good luck to you.
