Generally speaking antibiotics should not cause dizziness.
Has anyone noticed if your eyes and bouncing back and forth quickly?
Aside from that... there is something called nystagmus which causes the eyes to both move back and forth quickly - both move at the same time/speed. Has anyone noticed since the dizziness if this is going on with you?
I'm just looking something up quickly here.
Okay. Neither of the medications that you are on should be causing your dizziness.
This leads me to wonder if you have an inner ear infection (not middle ear - which is the one people most commonly get) that is causing this problem.
The fact that it is when you move your head also makes me wonder if you might have a 'stone' in your inner ear.
The inner ear is made up of 3 twisting tubes that let your body know which way is up. When there is a stone in there (called an otolith - this comes from the normal fluid that is there) then it messes up your balance and gives you the feelings you mention.
I'm going to take a quick look if there is a link I can give you about this part of your question/problem.
I think that it would either be an otolith or an inner ear infection.
One thing you might want to do before going to the doctor is to shake your head in the way that makes you feel dizzy and record your eye movements when you are looking straight ahead, and to each side.
Have you seen any videos of what horizontal nystagmus can appear?
If it is an infection, that can take a few weeks to resolve (on antibiotics - which you already are taking).
If it is an otolith then you should see an ENT doctor to find out about therapy
It still can take some time to resolve - if it is an infection.
But it would be wise to see your doctor and possibly an ENT to find out if you have an otolith.
I think that the sensitivity has to do with a mixture of the medicine and feeling bad. This makes everything more sensitive. You might have noticed that you are also more sensitive to which clothes you wear etc. Sometimes the difference in sensitivity is not noticed as much on other areas of the body as it is on the penis - where there are more sensory nerve receptors.
Conceivably it could have to do with brain or nerve, but I would doubt it. First check out what most likely is the problem, then, we would look into seeing if this is more serious. Almost always it is local at the area of the labrynth.
Are you taking any other medications?
Do you have any other medical problems?
Then, my thought would be that the emotions are coming from feeling so badly. Dizziness is something that really impacts your life, and even if you are not feeling completely depressed, illness is known to cause depression. (Temporary illness - temporary 'reactive' depression).
I treat each patient/customer as if they were my family member. If you were my brother I'd encourage you to go see an ENT.
I want to give you service that will make you want to rate my service as "excellent", so please let me know what other questions you may have.
Also, apparently there are 2 minutes left on the timer (I'm not quite sure how that works), but if you would like I can change this to a q&a type session so you don't get charged extra.
While you are waiting to see your GP you can call an ENT and make an appointment.
