I am 40 year old with no history of illness at all ever not even colds. Looking for anyone who has had this and doctors found out what it was.

I started having balance issues, like vertigo dizziness, everything seems loud in particular after I have been lying down and sit up. Lately I have severe neck ache at top of neck where it meets the head and pressure on top of head ( not a head ache just pressure). I have had loads of blood tests, all clear. Sugar levels all OK. Heart checks all ECG, Echo cardio graph clear. In fact in great shape according to doctors. Now just had an MRI as it is getting worse. I get tingling in face under ear and pressure on top of head. They have given me something for the dizziness and nausea that seems to be working ok.

Something tells me this may be ears nose and throat related but Doctors are off on a mission with other things.
A big clue was that it got worse when they cleared my ears out back in Nov and I had been having some water discharge from the ears.

Can anyone suggest what I should be asking my doctor to check ?
