    could be s number of issues including vertigo or middle ear infection. hopefully its either one of those and not too serious. sometimes doctors get it wrong so try relax and go back to your doctors and tell them to get the finger out. best of luck.

    The balance issue cd be the calcium crystals in your ear hv become loose. It cd also be something neurological which wd require a neurologist to do an MRI. Try not to worry as that just increases your symptoms and distress. Get in to a dr as soon as possible and try some relaxation techniques like paced or focused breathing to concentrate on. IT's a mindfulness technique that is proven to reduce anxiety. Good luck.

    I get really upset when doctors say it could be something serious before the MRI or scans are read.

    they should wait and get a result first. It could be something non-serious as well. I have had dizziness for years and years and it was all related to stress and anxiety. I’m glad you’re getting checked out but try to relax as much as possible. Go to YouTube and search for meditations for anxiety. They are very helpful and calm you down.

    one I really like is called " it’s OK" . By Lauren. She really knows how to make you feel calm and relaxed. ❤
