Brief Answer: Middle ear disease likely. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for posting your query. In my opinion, this pain in the ear with muffled hearing and dizziness is likely to be due to a middle ear disease. It can be related to an infection, miniere's disease or any middle ear growth. This needs a direct examination by an ENT specialist to confirm the diagnosis. You may also get an MRI scan done to detect any anatomical lesion. I would advise you to consult an ENT surgeon to first confirm the cause of your symptoms i.e the exact diagnosis whether meniere's or proprioceptive disorders or any neurological cause by evaluation and investigation ( mri, audiogram, etc) The treatment will depend on the cause and its severity. Its best not to delay consultation as the further progression might decrease the chances of better response to oral medicines . I hope this answers your query. In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out. Wishing you good health. Regards. Dr. Praveen Tayal.
