Been getting dizzy more often.

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hello.

I'M 41 yrs old. My dizziness has been acting up more lately. I have Tinnitus and I think I have Meniere's disease. My mother has Meniere's and I have all the same signs. But for the past week I get dizzy when I only lay on my left side. I always get dizzy and feel light headed from time to time. But it never stayed with me for days on end. I plan on going to the doctor next week for a check up and see what's going on. I don't really get dizzy when standing. Only when I lay on my left side. After looking online, a lot say I may have an inner ear problem. Or bad sinus pressure. Anyone have an idea?

Thanks.
