Dizziness, ears feel clogged up, numbness, ringing sensation. What could be the reason?

I ve been getting dizzy and my ear feels clogged up. Sometimes both ears. I went to a doctor thinking it was probably an inner ear infection , but they said my ears were clear. Sometimes I feel my heartbeat in my ear or pulsing when I walk. Once they went slightly numb with ringing. this has been going on for at least 2 months now but still no pain. Sometimes my whole head will feel like it s buzzing also.

Hi Sac,
Thanks for writing your query.

The cause of your dizziness seems to be in your ear. The most common cause is Meniere's disease.

You should avoid excess intake of coffee and salt as it is observed that this may increase the discomfort.
You should get yourself examined by an ENT specialist.

Taking betahistine 16 mg thrice a day will be helpful in relief from dizziness.

Also get your head scannned to rule out other causes of dizziness.

I hope this is helpful to you.
