Hearing Loss/muffled and numbness and occasional headaches

I am a female. 23 years old. I am wondering if any of this is related...on and off for about a year I have had very slight hearing loss , more so muffle and numbness feeling than anything. but only in my right ear. It comes and goes monthly. right now, for about two weeks is the longest I have had this. Occasionally when i get the muffled hearing, i get horrible headaches on the left side of my head (usually at night) and mostly while laying down...and there have been times within the past few weeks where I was laying down and it seemed as if the room was spinning, that happened three times..could this all be related somehow?

This can be secondary to fluid in the middle ear. It is called secretory otitis media. You require a thorough examination by an apt ENT specialist. Till then, try doing steam inhalation 2-3 times/day and drink plenty of warm water.

Have u any history of ear discharhe, if yes then u might be suffering from complicated CSOM. but if there is no history of ear discharge, then u might be suffering from a disease cd Meniers disease.

Both these r serious conditions. Do consult an ENT surgeon soon for further management.
