hi.. ma'am.. appears to be case of labyrinthitis or menieres disease....but just cause you mentioned the difficulty in processing thought you may like to take an MRI of the brain as well as some middle ear/ inner ear problems spread to the brain too...you can take t vertin 32 twice daily for your feeling of being off balance , also restrict salt in your diet and do consult an eNT SURGEON firsthand so hat he could examine your middle ear/ inner ear with an otoscope...

the symptoms i have only started today, other than the earache which i've had for about a week. my dr thought it might be a disfuctional tube making my ear pop alot. which it is doing. but now with my head feeling compressed and the feeling off balance as well as
not being able to think as clearly as normal he's not sure why the tube disfunction would cause this. I just want some fresh views. and would like to know how to fix it. He says there is no infection and my ears look healthy. please explain what could be going on so that i might be able to ask him better questions I have to see him again today.
