Brief Answer:
Labyrinth disorder.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic,

Hearing problem with associated dizziness can be related to inner ear or labyrinth. It can be any thing from vestibularcneuritis to Labyrinthitis to menieres disease.

Through investigation of ear functions should be done initially.
Tests advised:

Pure tone audiometry.
Caloric test.
Vestibular evoked myogenic potential.
MRI brain with contrast to rule out vestibular schawanoma.
2D- echo to rule out cardiac functions.
Do follow up with E.N.T afterwards

Hope this helps

Hi I am a 33 yr old male; I had an attack of vertigo almost three weeks back. I went to ER where they said it s Vestibular neuritis and I was put on 8mg Serc and 5mg Stematil. I took the meds for 5 days and was apparently fine. On the 8th day had this nausea with a little wobbly feeling; consulted a local doc and he started me on 16mg Serc for 5 days. The moment I took 16mg my head had this fullness feeling and my head was almost always wobbly. 5 days after I went to Neurology and they said my neurological exam was fine but I should take 5mg stem and 8mg serc for 7 days. The next day I consulted an ENT Surgeon and he said it s Viral Labyrinthitis and that I should be fine by the end of the present medicinal course. But even though I am taking the meds, my head still feels wobbly and have this occasional nauseated feeling. I am very concerned as I have to travel in a month and my symptoms does not seem to be getting any better. An advice is much appreciated.
