Unbearably dizzy - could it really be TMJ?
« on: April 17, 2014, 05:50:55 PM »
A lot of you guys know that I've been struggling with dizziness and hearing loss/distortion since January. Well these past 2 days have been awful for the dizziness. It's a constant feeling worse with head movement, I'm afraid to walk because I feel like I will fall over. My jaw/ears hurt and now my left ear goes distorted around loud noises too when before it was only my right ear. I have ringing in both ears as well. I thought it could he minears disease but my friend on ***** said it sounds like TMJ and this was before I mentioned having any problems with my jaw at all. I'm very afraid, this symptom is terrifying - how can I live when my head is spinning and not think it's a tumour or MS or something awful like heart diseases? Can my jaw/ears really make me THIS dizzy?

It really does sound like Meniere's.   I kind of doubt that TMJ could cause those problems.  (but I don't know much about that)
Do your ears ever feel "full"?  If so, that's another symptom of Meniere's and you could get some medications to either drain fluid or what have you.  Have you been to the doc?

They do a lot yes, haven't been yet not until July. On a cancellation list. If I knew for sure it was menieres I would be okay with it but the dizziness is just so scary. The fact that it flares up and goes away is also another sign of menieres. I'm just so terrified.
