Pregnant, constant dizzy, extra fluid in ears. Will sudafed help?

I am 15 weeks pregnant and went to my OB because I have been constantly dizzy. I about passed out at work the other day. I just don't feel right. She made it out as being dizzy like that is normal...but not when its constant, so she was confused. She noticed I had alot of extra fluid in my ears. Could this cause the constant dizziness and when can I do. I dont want to miss work, but I work in a factory and dont want to end up falling and hurting myself or the baby in the process. She advised me to use sudafed??? Do you honestly think this will help? I have only just started taking it not expecting results right away... but still dizzy. I dont want to miss work!!! HELP!!

Thanks for the query.
Yes,ear problems can sometimes lead to dizziness.
So you better once consult ENT surgeon and get examined to find out the actual cause of your dizziness.
Probably he can guide you better in this matter as you are having problem in ear.
After consulting him, if he advices you can continue the medicine adviced be your your obstetrician.
If you are feeling excessive dizziness better to take take leave for few days till the symptoms resolve.
For more details you can ask me through:
Take care.
