    Hello Jasmine,

    Do your ear/ears feel blocked ?  I never find that antibiotic ear drops any good and usually then

    put ask for oral antibiotics, which probably you need.

    Dizziness is common with tinnitus and tinnitus is common when our ears are blocked.

    If you find when you get oral antibibiotics they still don't will then need Prednisolone

    steroid tablets to get rid of all the inflammation that has swelled your Eustachian tubes so they're

    unable to drain.

    As I've suffered Eustachian Tube Dyfunction fo so many years, I know what works and what doesn't.

    I'm so fortunate that I live in England, as it seems others countries aren't able to get  what has helped

    me and that's Flixonase Nasule Drops.  I tell absolutely everyone on this Forum how good my ears

    have been since last April 2017....due to the medication I've used.  I've seen my ENT consultant at

    the hospital today ( one of my twice yearly appts.) and he is very pleased with how I am getting on

    and seem to be on top of this awful condition.

    Here to help if you need to message.

      Hi Anne

      Went to the doctors this afternoon she said my ears look fine but I’ve still got this ringing in them. As for the dizziness she doesn’t know what’s causing it. I’ve had blood tests and blood pressure tests and everything is fine. I really don’t know what’s going on with me sad

      Hiya,  suggest it could be Meniers disease, which is a virus.....sorry I think I've spelt that

      incorrectly.  Or Google and read what it says about it.

      Tinnitus could be stress.

      I hope not I’m only 21 I don’t want something that progresses and eventually causes hearing loss.. that would suck. Tinnitus sounds more like it as I have just started on anti depressants for anxiety x

      Meniers goes, so you don't have to worry about that, it's a virus that will eventually you'll get better from, assuming that is what you've got....but may not be.  Tinnitus can be caused through stress.  I was talking about the vertigo....that won't be permanent either.
