The Dizzy Patient Evaluation
by Dr. Christopher Chang, last modified on
DISCLAIMER: We do NOT consider ourselves "dizzy" experts, but provide the following info as a service to patients. As we are an ENT practice, we will only perform the appropriate testing and evaluation to see if the ears and/or allergies are a cause of a patient's dizziness. Anything more needs to be arranged through your primary care physician or another specialist. Generally speaking, a neurologist is the specialist able to provide the most comprehensive evaluation of dizziness.
The dizziness lasts continuously for weeks to months before improving...
... and is associated with only ear fullness and/or hearing loss to one or both ears.
You may be suffering from eustachian tube dysfunction or serous otitis media. For definitive diagnosis, an examination of the ears is required along with a hearing test. If this problems recurs throughout the year, allergies may be a factor whether it is pollen or foods. An allergy evaluation may be warranted.
