No, it cannot be something related to the ear infection.

The doctors have checked you and the tests also seem to have found nothing. This commonly happens when there is electrolyte imbalance and the routine investigations are normal in such instances. Chronic alcohol consumption can also lead to this.

Add fresh fruits and fruit juices to your daily diet. Consume lots of fluids orally with electrolytes. You can take the oral rehydration salt with water as well.

The symptom should wean off gradually. Take multivitamins supplements on a daily basis.

I do not think there is any serious underlying pathology in you.

Let me know if you have more concerns.

Take care.
