Hi Rena,

Fluid in the ears is because of the Eustachian tube blocking the ear secondary to flu. This is called secretory otitis media, the dizziness and the noise in the ear are due to this fluid in the ear. Do steam inhalation 2-3 times/day, drink plenty of warm water and do consult your ENT specialist for a thorough ear examination.
