Hello.

Thanks for the query.

It is least likely that your current problem is because of the pregnancy.

It sounds more like you are suffering from a middle ear infection which actually explains all your symptoms you are suffering from. It is a treatable problem and you need not get worried.

I advice the following things.

Abstain from driving and swimming for 2 weeks.
Avoid listening to loud music and avoid water entering into your ear.

Seek help from ENT doctor for an examination and treatment with certain middle ear sedatives like Beta Histadine.

I hope, I have answered your query. Please accept my answer in case you do not have follow up queries.

Regards.
