What could be causeing me to feel dizzy ? I do get sharp pains in my ear could it be an ear infection causeing the dizziness? Or can hemorroids cause dizziness? Please help!! I m kind of scared :S by the way I m only 17 years old.

Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum
What is your Gender? Apart from Dizziness, what other symptoms do you have? May be you are having Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV). You may want to get yourself examined by a ENT Specialist to it out and any other ear pathology as you will require Medications and Epley's Maneuver. Hemorrhoid don't cause Dizziness. Sit down immediately when you feel dizzy, Sit down immediately. You may want to take your Medications regularly and go for regular follow up.

Wish you Good Health.

For the past 5 days I ve been feeling slightly dizzy, not like the room is moving or anything but my head just does not feel right. I played basketball on Sunday for about 2 hours and felt fine, but I haven t been working out because I have not felt well. When I lay down I feel fine with no issues, but after getting up and walking for about 2-3 minutes my legs feel weak and I get slightly dizzy again. My sleeping pattern is not bad and my eating habits are alright. I have not been to the doctor s yet. The only background I have is that I am a 18 year old male who has lost about 30 pounds since the summer of 2012 and I have high blood pressure. (210-180lbs)

Hello, my 7 year old daughter is battling an ear ache possible ear infection for 3 days. I haven t taken her in because I ve been under the impression that s it s best to allow her to work through it with natural home remedies and save antibiotics as a last resort. she has had a fever come and go and I ve been giving her tylenol and made a garlic infused olive oil mix to use as drops in her ear several times a day. it seems to sooth and help a little but neither remedy has gotten the throbbing to go away. throbbing seems to have moved from her ear to a couple areas on her head around her ear. today is the 4th day. because she was in her jammies and laying around most of yesterday, she didn t brush her teeth. this morning i talked her into letting me because her breath was bad and I knew bacteria in the mouth wouldn t help the situation. i was shocked to find that her tongue was blackish green! some of it brushed off but not all and it seemed to be coming from the back of the tongue. is this a sign of bacteria confirming her ear or sinuses probably has a bacterial infection?

I have a recurring problem with my ears. The skin is flaky, and the ear canals itch terribly. It itches all the way to my ear drum. Also, my ears become impacted all the time. It happens more in the right ear than the left. And I know you aren t supposed to stick foreign objects in there, but it will hurt so badly until I get the clog out. The clogs are white with black around the edges, and look more like plastic almost than earwax. I get vertigo all of the time too. I ve gone to my doctor for it, and he keeps telling me it s swimmers ear, gives me the don t go swimming, dry your ears with a hair dryer on low setting, and the medications for swimmers ear. I take the meds and follow the advice, but it doesn t ever go away. Four years ago, I tore my left eardrum in an accident and had to have it surgically fixed. I m 29, 153 lbs and 4 foot 5 inches. I m allergic to yeast, eggs, codiene, dextromorphathan, zithromycin, penicillen, and amoxicillan. I also work at a state park that is located at the highest point in my state.
