Dear Deb, sounds like old Morbus Menieres is acting up. I have been told that it is not unusual for us menierians to have more "ear problems" when we get an infection. I too have been on antibotic for ear infection for last nine days and have had an increase in pressure, fullness, and sudden ear pain when I bend. So far no major vertigo( lets hope I didn't just jinks myself). Suggestion would be to make sure your sticking to a low salt diet, caffine free ( as much as possible) and if that doesn't help suggest you contact your doctor. Hope you feel better soon. Bless you.
