Suggest treatment for facial numbness and loss of body balance

I have numbness in left side face mainly near/ around ear. (feels like anistasia wearing off something) I cannot hear properly in my left side and have pain and pressure TMJ constant soreness. Ongoing for 10 days now, and includes feeling nausea, dizzy, off balance, lack of appitighte. My sleep is getting worse or lack there of, as the pressure and numbness wont go away its getting worse.
I have been using antihistamene nasal spray for last 4 days with no improvement.
(i am a exercise professional and Im usually very "jumpy like jelly bean", high energy, positive and good hearing. Lately I've bumping into objects and tripping over my own feet. And my friends tell me I'm talking to loud, oh).

Hello,Thankyou for your Question
Brief..It could be because of ear infection or inner ear cochlea problem or mennier's disease
Detailed...As human ear has three parts (external ear,middle ear and inner ear),any problem in middle ear and inner ear can cause all of your symptoms.
Also,since facial nerve supplies this part of face,and herpes(viral) infection can also cause these symptoms.My opinion would be get checkd by ENT doctor and discuss further about these causes.For treatment until you get checked by ENT doctor you may use ofloxin ear drops 2 drops 3 times.
