    Sounds like anxiety and BPPV. Look BPPV up on Google. Looking up and getting dizzy is characteristic of BPPV symptoms. There is a simple maneuver that a physical therapist can perform that will clear it if it is that. If your ear hurts as well you may need an antibiotic as you could well have an inner ear infection as well. It should be fine with treatment.

    The best way to deal with a panic attack is to not fight it but to go THROUGH it.  Don't try to stop it. Allow yourself to have it and breathe slowly in through the nose and out through the mouth. The dizziness definitely made my panic attacks worse,  but you CAN get through it. Also doing something "normal" can make them go away faster. Brush your teeth or comb your hair. I also take 30 MG of Paxil a day to help me with them.  Take care. It's going to be okay. Mary
