Hi,
There are two possibilities for your trouble.
1,If there is some infection or auto sclerotic changes in your ears.
2,You might have cervical spondilitis,due to stretching of nerves coming out of vartebrae or pressure on nerves can cause dizziness,numbness in the hand.
you go for ENT and orthopedic check up.
