OK. An inner ear problem can cause dizziness, balance problems, ringing in the ears, and vision problems but not shortness of breath and muscles aches or a problem with the heart. Usually the problem resolves itself in a few days, but if it continued, I'd get an MRI of the brain and head just to make sure it wasn't from a brain tumor or an acoustic neuroma.
