Ringing in ear. Dizziness on moving head. Remedy?

Ringing in the ear is not very loud but always there and I think is slightly louder after I listen to something . I get kind of dizzy if I move my head and I feel like I am on a boat. It is worse during the evenings and night. Better during morning.
I feel that my head position is doing something. I am not able to explain what it is. It's not room spinning. It's something that makes me feel bad. Makes me feel a little sick in the stomach not even full
I do have slight fullness in both ears . Right worse than left. But I am able
To make my ears pop. So it's not entirely full. But even if I pop it gets back to the original state

Hi,
There are many causes for tinnitus for example wax accumulation in the ear, foreign body stuck in the ear, listening to really loud music, a side effect of medication or a symptom of other diseases.
But in your case since you are dizzy as well it means that there is something else wrong with your ear as well.
As such I would recommend that you see an ENT specialist, he will be able to evaluate your condition properly and find the cause of your problems.
I hope this helped you.

Dear customer,

The ringing in ear can be due to various causes like :


1) A buildup of earwax.
2) Medicines, especially antibiotics or large amounts of aspirin.
3) Drinking an excessive amount of alcohol or caffeinated beverages.
4) Ear infections or eardrum rupture.
5) Dental or other problems affecting the mouth, such as temporomandibular (TM) problems.
6) Injuries, such as whiplash or a direct blow to the ear or head.
7) Injury to the inner ear following surgery or radiation therapy to the head or neck.
8)A rapid change in environmental pressure (barotrauma).
9)Severe weight loss from malnutrition or excessive dieting.
10) Repeated exercise with the neck in a hyperextended position, such as when bicycle riding.
11)Blood flow (vascular) problems, such as carotid atherosclerosis, AV malformations, and high blood pressure (hypertension).
12)Nerve problems (neurologic disorders), such as multiple sclerosis or migraine headache.
13) Acoustic neuroma.
14) Anemia.
15) Labyrinthitis.
16) Meniere's disease.

The ear was is the most common and you should get it checked with the ENT doctor.The relevant investigations like ct scan, mri brain, blood counts etc may be advised to find the exact cause.

The treatment is directed according to the underlying cause.
