Dizziness, burning sensation in eyes, ringing sound in ears reoccurred after taking antibiotics. Possible reason?

I am 40 years old male. During the last few weeks I am feeling dizziness , slight burning sensation in eyes, & ringing sound in ears. Consulted the physician who diagnosed infection & gave antibiotics . Problem solved at that time but again came back now. I was earlier having cervical spondylitis but its symptoms are lesser now. I have once suffered from Herpes many years back.

hello and welcome to health care magic,

I am Dr Sriram Nathan, an ENT surgeon and I will try to help you out with you out with your problem.

You seem to be having an episode of labyrinthitis which was treated as an infection but the problem has returned. You may thus have a resistant infection or your diagnosis may have to be confirmed. Since you do have ringing sound or tinnitus in the ear along with giddiness, you may in all probability have an inner ear problem. Nevertheless you must do these:

1. take an audiometry test including PTA and impedance and get back to me with the report.

2. If you still have giddiness then you may start a course of betahistine 16mg TID for two weeks in consultation with your doctor.

3. You may also try a tablet called the TINNICAR for your tinnitus.

4. If the tinnitus and giddiness persists then you must get an CT scan of the temporal bones and get back to me or any ENT with the report

5. Google for VESTIBULAR REHAB EXERCISES and do them routinely

hope this helps

take care

Dr Sriram Nathan
