hi long story long.
I had flu-like symptoms in early January. I got over it. Or so I thought. Fast forward a couple weeks later. I developed slight vertigo.
Week 1 - slight vertigo, on and off
Week 2 - dull ear fullness, slight facial tension
Week 3 - extreme heavy swollen head, lightheaded, painful ear fullness, heavy facial tension
I go to urgent care in week 3. Doctor says I have a migraine...a migraine. Prescribes me ibropufen and zofran. Doesnt help
Week 4 - same symptoms as week 3 + throbbing fingers + burning sensations in hands and feet
I go to physician in week 4. He says its an inner ear infection. Prescribes Meclizine, Ibropufen and Ear drops...They dont seem to help
Week 5 - same symptoms as both week 3 and 4! New symptoms appear however. I can hear my heart beat louder (not necessarily faster).
Extremely fatigued. Cant stand without feeling wobbly. My heart can be heard through my swollen head. Also an interesting one. I sometimes have mid-slighty upper back pain right down the center when I wake up. But i havent worked out or applied pressure on my back since having these symptoms.
I go back to the doctor for blood test review. Normal except Low on Vitamin D and a little high cholesterol. Doctor says Im not diabetic.
He says that my anxiety is probably through the roof and creating all these symptoms. I dont necessarily believe him.
I never suffered from major panic attacks or anxiety. Is it possible this "ear infection" made me feel this way? Is this even from an ear infection? Anxiety can make someone feel this way 24/7?
I was a somewhat heathy guy leading up to the new year, now I cant even stand without feeling nauseous. What happened?

Any advice would be awesome.
