vertigo, plugged ears and swollen gland under right ear.

I have had symptoms of dizziness, blurred vision, off balance since the 7Th. Now for a few days the gland or nerve under my right ear is sore.

Waiting for appointment with ent, has anyone had this problem.

Thank you

    Google Vertical Heterophoria which is an eye issue. Also could be wisdom teeth or your SCM muscle. Problem is your symptoms can be a lot of things ENT is a good starting point.

    Hi Angie,I have had this problem 11 weeks now and eyes are blurred but mostly my right one,I haven't been able to work as the dizziness is really bad,if the gland or nerve is sore you might have a virus or it could be a inner ear infection,have you taken any antibiotics?take care lisa

      Thank You Lisa

      This whole ordeal is so aggravating The Dizziness, off balance, ringing and feeling of clogged ears mainly the right one.

      Have been taking amoxicillin now and nothing seems to work. GP said I Have an inner ear problem.

      Usually if i put an ice pack in the back if my neck, helps calm some of the symptoms.

      I hope you feel better.

      Thank you Angie,I've tried antihistamine and it helps a little,also i use a heat pad on my neck to ease symptoms.I'm on a pill called stemital which is a great help but sedates both ears so your not off balance but you can't stay on it forever,are you able to go out/work etc? I don't go out alone as my dizziness has got too bad.take care,lisa

      You need to switch antibiotics. Also, I've found that if you take amoxicillin it needs to be additional dose, so 875 mg, 3xdaiky. It takes about a week to stop attacks IF amoxicillin will help. Alternatives are Cipro and Keflex, although I just finished a 14 day dose of Leviquin (didn't do much better than amox!)

      Hi Angie

      You sound exactly like me. Not many others speak of clogged ears as you have. With me its the left one....clogged for 3 months. Do you get pain or pressure in your ears as well?

      Have you gotten a diagnosis?

      Hi Debbie

      With me it is my right ear. I feel it clogged with lots of pressure and i find that that ear is really sensitive to loud noise and i also get ringing. My left ear seems okay but it pops a lot.

      I go to see the ent on the 21st. My regular doctor says that there is somethin . Going on with my inner ear. So i am praying that i find out something Soon.
