Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Do you have any history of heart disease, or high blood pressure?
Pounding in one ear and nausea can be from high blood pressure related issue sometimes?
Do you have any ear pain, dizziness?
Thanks again for reply.
It is likely you have right ear problem which is also causing nausea during yoga exercises.
Infection in the right ear cavity or eustachian tube dysfunction ( eustachian tube connects your middle ear cavity to the throat to maintain air pressure equilibrium), can cause such symptoms.
Besides ear problem it can be due to the rise in blood pressure during yoga practice causing symptoms.
Forgot to ask, do you have any nasal or sinus congestion?
ok that makes sense.
You have seasonal allergies.
That is likely causing the eustachian tube dysfunction and hence the symptoms.
You should try any antihistamine like loratadine 10 mg tab daily to control seasonal allergies.
And during yoga, avoid any head down postures and also also any fast head movement as they can precipitate the symptoms you described above.
Not usually --especially loratadine.
