Ear infection with nausea and vomiting

hi there
I have been experiencing alot of ringing in my ears which is quickly followed by nausea and vomiting. It gets so bad that i cant even move my head as I will end up vomiting. this usually lasts for a day but keeps on returning every few days. I have been to an ENT but he just dismissed it as a middle ear infection. I have taken Stugeron a few weeks ago which did help for a while but the symptoms have returned. Please advise as I am desperate for a cure as it really affects me and i am unable to work for the day.

Dear Anonymous

I would strongly recommend that you see an ENT again. If you are not satisfied with your current diagnosis, then i would advise you to seek a second opinion. It would also be advisable to have balance testing done by an Audiologist. If you don't know of an ENT and an Audiologist in your area, then please let me know and i will gladly refer you (izabelle@widex.co.za)

Please let me know if you need any further information

Kind regards
