Also would this condition make you dizzy?

Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.That suggests you likely have eustachian tube blockage which connects middle ear to the throat.The fluid accumulates due to the inflammation but cannot drain due to tube blockage.Flonase helps to some extent but does not fix the main problem of blockage.Hence a ENT specialist should be considered for better evaluation.Ear drum tube can be inserted for better drainage.Yes chronic ear inflammation cause dizziness as well.Best wishes,It was my pleasure to help you today.If I have answered all your questions, Please rate my response Excellent (click on the 5th star).Please bookmark my profile for fast, reliable and authentic answers!This is the link to my profile:

Also if a doctor can see ur notes that you are being treated for this with nasal spray could he refer you without seeing you again?
