Dear Mezza,

This sounds like a virus that might have affected your middle ear. Being dizzy is the main sympom. The symptoms are related to slight increase in the fluid inside the middle ear giving rise to these symptoms. This is an entity that is not easy to deal with sometimes.

There are medications that can be offered to help with the dizziness but they do not help in some cases.

It is going to take a while to get over it.

Thank you very much for using our website http://doctorslounge. com and I hope that this information helped.

Yasser Mokhtar, M. D.
