Feeling woozy/dizzy sometimes.

I've been feeling woozy for a week now. It comes and goes. Usually it is tied to big stomach issues, like diarrhea. For a while I thought it was a sinus infection/ear infection as I had some head pain in those areas and congestion. I was thinking vertigo or something. I am not sure now. Been fearing the worst, a BT or something, but hoping it will just subside on it's own. I fear going to doctors in case they find something. :-/ Any advice?

You got some choices to make. Don’t get checked because of your fear and risk something getting worse or beyond treatment. Put your fear aside for your own well being and get checked and perhaps save your life. Let logic be your guide, you only have one life, there are no do overs.

I agree that messing around too long is not good either. I am of the mind that running to the doctor often is expensive and not needed. I have gone for what I thought were absolute proven symptoms over the years and been told it’s anxiety only to move on to something else. The nausea is definitely improving and my left ear clearly is part of it as that ear hurts sometimes, feels plugged, and putting water in that ear almost entirely removes the nausea feeling. I plan to continue oils and such and monitor its improving. If it’s an ear infection, it may take some time to heal without antibiotics.

If you are putting oil in your ear, it may be building up and compounding the problem. I would hold off on that if you are putting it in your ear. There is no substitute for a professional opinion and if there is an infection, antibiotics vs letting it go could save you the healing of a ruptured ear drum. You could try Dramamine, which could help with vertigo and upset stomach/nausea.

Heading in to see a doctor just to check things out. Hopefully they see the cause right away and I can get it fixed easy. My underlying fear is a brain tumor or something but I’m hopeful that I’m wrong about that. I’ll update after.

Doctor wasn’t worried in the slightest. Vitals all looked good. Gave me some options for over the counter stuff. Heading to Walmart. He said it’s likely just lingering ear issues from my bad cold not long back.

Ahhh! The sound of relief. I’m glad you got it checked. I’m sure it is a load off your mind, and glad it was just the remnants from your cold.
