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!!

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)

My two year old got her ears pieced in march. We cleaned them properly for the first 7 weeks. She had no issues. A few days ago I noticed dry crusty scaley skin around the back of her ear in a ring right around the hole. I peeled it off with tweezers. It didn t seem to bother her. The front of her ear looks fine. I have been back to cleaning them twice a day since I noticed it, but the back of the one ear looks really inflamed in the afore mentioned area and in a spot where the ear meets the back of her head. Is it an infection or some type of excema and how should we treat it??

my 7 month old was very unhappy yesterday and cried a lot. This morning I noticed that her right ear has a lot of wax which has dried and crusted in the outer ear. There were also yellow patches on her cot sheet which I presume was wax. When I went to touch the ear today she complained, should I assume this is an ear infection and will it heal itself or do I need to see a doctor tomorrow?
