Metallic taste with lightheadedness?

Posted , 1 user is following.

I kept going to the doctors for what I suspected was an ear infection, (ear pain, ear leakage, slight loss of hearing) and they put me on antibiotics. Different ones each time. None of them worked so I just stopped complaining to the doctor because clearly antibiotics weren't working so I just learned to deal. My ears almost always feel like the pressure is wrong, kind of like when an airplane is taking off? So I pop them a lot. When I pop them I get a metallic taste in my mouth and I feel really light headed like how I do before I pass out and have a seizure. I don't actually pass out/seize when I pop my ears and I haven't seen or felt any blood in my mouth it's just the taste. Anyway, my hearing is getting worse slowly. I keep getting migraines as well as mild headaches, I don't know if that's relevant or not. I'm really tired of the doctors not doing anything but antibiotics, which CLEARLY aren't working.. So is this something I should even bother continuing to push? If I do continue to push this since it's impacting my daily life, what do I even say/ask about?
