Hi. We can continue after this if you'd like. Part of this is benign vertigo--a problem with your inner ear but not an infection in itself. But it also sounds as though you have a blocked Eustachian tube on the left and you may also have developed a sinus infection. For now you can try either a Neti pot or a saline irrigation system to see if that helps the congestion and the tube blockage and you can also take some zinc lozenges. If that doesn't clear things up in another one or two days you need to see a doctor for some oral presnisone tablets and perhaps antibiotics if those are warranted.
